"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Please describe how to configure this in the usg 1000

you need to enlarge the local network by choosing a nonstandard netmask.
f.e. LAN interface  (=512 addresses)
LAN (1024 addresses)
LAN (2048 addresses)
(minus the 3 standard addresses, each).
You can adjust the DHCP range accordingly.

The netmask defines the size of the network.
The smalest network is /32 (a single node)
The largest network is /0 (the whole internet.)

You can see that in the default gateway   (
there are some standard networks
A class (/8)    ( is private space, there is 1 network)
B class (/16)  ( is private space, there are 32 networks )
C class (/24) ( is private space, there are 256 networks)

So i have no idea what you mean how it will jump to a higher address.  There is nothing automatic, just define the netmask.  And adjust the dhcp range accordingly.
