Working with a small office (5 users) that has a Windows 2012 R2 server.
The server currently handles DHCP.
We have one router. An ASUS TR-AC87U.
We want to enable a guest wireless network... but since DHCP is on the server... and the guest login does not allow network access, the connection times out.
Right now the server provides IPs in the range of 192.168.35.10 to 192.1686.35.50... with some fixed IPs in the 0-9 range.
I am thinking of turning on DHCP on the router for .51 to 99.
My thinking is those with credentials for the network wireless login, will see the server and grab an address in the 10 to 50 range.
Meanwhile any guests would not "see" the server and get an address from .51 t0 .99 from the router.
I am trying to find out what might be wrong with this arrangement. Suggestions welcome. I am also thinking of changing the router subnet for its DHCP from .35 to e.g. .36, but not sure if that is necessary, or possible given that the router itself is 192.168.35.1.
Thanks for any comments.
