Changing Lease Duration for DHCP clients
Posted on 2017-03-16
We run a small network for a small company of about 100 people and we have a lot of users that use our Wi-Fi with iPhones, AppleWatches, iPads, Androids and other devices. We also have clients that come in for meetings that use our Wi-Fi and take up IP addresses.
We are starting to run low on available DHCP IPs and our lease has always been 8 Days for years. We are thinking of changing that along with having users not use their personal devices on our network.
Our question is if we change the lease to 3 days, does that have any kind of negative impact on DHCP or the network? Too much activity or just something that we are potentially missing?
Any help would be appreciated.
