Start the DHCP Management Console under Administrative Tools, Right click on either IPV4 or IPV6 (whichever one you're using) and select new scope.  Follow the set-up wizard.  Once done, deactivate the 192 scope pool.

Make sure you set up the scope options, and reservations.  Also, you will probably have to change some router rules on your router  for the new ip addresses, particularly any services you have running (VPN,Web Services, SMTP, etc).
