Wireless modem in mixed environment

Posted on 2014-12-17
Last Modified: 2015-03-05
Looking to add a SonicWall between the modem and server. The modem IP mask is 192.168.0.x and SonicWall mask is 192.168.168.x. DHCP services will come from the server, with no wireless for BYOD. Is it possible to turn on modem DHCP to server the BYOD and not cause issues with the server?

Don't know netopia but should work just fine.  Make sure the DHCP ranges do not overlap. Possibly block DHCP offer on modem side on firewall.

Thanks for comments. We are looking to have DHCP on the server behind the SonicWall with a mask of 192.168.168.x. The Netopia wireless modem/router will have DHCP for mask 192.168.0.x, this will serve BYOD which is on an entirely different DHCP mask.
