I am confused with what happens to the
default router adddress when we are configuring
DHCP in the router.
I have the network with 253 hosts,
192.168.1.0/24, and I have configured
DHCP in my network.
Now, while configuring DHCP, I have excluded the first four IP address of the network using
ip dhcp exclude-address command, but I haven't excluded the address that I have used as a
default-router address in DHCP configuration, which is the last address of the network, i.e.
Now, I am confused that, since I didn't excluded that last ip address and point it to a
default-router will router try to lease that address ?
If not, is it automatically excluded ? or do I have to exclude it myself to avoid any conflict ?
default-router is pointing to another router where hosts are connected, and where
ip helper-address is configured.
I am using 1841 Router in Packet Tracer.
