DHCP scope question

Is it possible to get a subnet, say x.x.52.0 and split the subnet into 2. Then each one is placed in its own DHCP scope? So there will be 2 scopes for 52.0.

If so how would I set that up in DHCP? Such as subnet mask , etc. Thanks.

Yes, let say you have a network 192.168.1.0 /24
depending on the number of host you want you can have as much as 254.

Example in a wan link you can have the subnet 192.168.1.0 /30

Network: 192.168.1.0
Firs IP: 192.168.1.1    In this scenario you are only using 2 ip addresses.
Last IP: 192.168.1.2
Broadcast 192.168.1.3

Your next network will be 192.168.1.4 /30
Network: 192.168.1.4
Firs IP: 192.168.1.5    In this scenario you are only using 2 ip addresses.
Last IP: 192.168.1.6
Broadcast 192.168.1.7

Get it?


If you wanna know more about subnetting, I recommend you my article of how to subnet IPv4 Class C address.
Later I will be adding Class B and A.

Thanks and I will. I just need to get this done. So I can create the scopes but when it asks me for the subnet mask, what should I put?

Tell me what type of subnet they gave you for example: 192.168.52.0 /24 or something else? You dont have to put you whole public address> Also you are using windows server to give the workstation dynamic IP. are you using the server as a router or you have a router?

Start IP address always is the usable address.
for example:

Network: 192.168.1.0
Start IP address: 192.168.1.1  
End IP: 192.168.1.2
Broadcast 192.168.1.3

But this network only will allow two host.
