I just expanded my network DHCP scope to 10.0.0.1 - 10.0.1.254 with a subnet mask of 255.255.254.0. I have set most of my static IP devices to the new subnet mask (DHCP on the device is turned off), however, I have several Cisco/Linksys E2000 devices that will not allow me to manually set the subnet. Instead, it has a drop-down menu with the following selections:
I have it set at 255.255.255.0 with an IP address of 10.0.0.xx and the devices seem to be working fine.
Is the inability to select the proper subnet a concern?
