WAP subnet mask setting

I just expanded my network DHCP scope to - with a subnet mask of  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 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?

If the APs need to actually talk to any devices with an IP of 10.0.1.x you won't be able to get that working, but it's not going to be an issue if clients are only using the AP as a means to get from wireless to wired network.

The clients don't actually talk to the AP, and vice-versa, so you won't get any issues.  As long as the PC you're managing the APs from is using a 10.0.0.x IP address (not a 10.0.1.x address) no-one will ever know :-)

it's a simple logic...

u just enabled a single sub net of 254 clients...

until u don't have a routing or vlans in your network... nothing to worry about it.. it'll works fine

all the best

I don't understand -- you said we enabled a subnet of 254 clients.  Actually, we have extended the subnet to include 508 clients with the subnet starting at
