In my office network, the DCHP Server is set to
I want to increase the available pool, so I am thinking update the above setting to
192.168.0.1/23 in order to have:
Network: 192.168.0.0/23 HostMin: 192.168.0.1 HostMax: 192.168.1.254 Hosts: 510 devices
So, if I am thinking right when I update the setting, a new device will able to get an IP address from
192.168.0.100 - 192.168.1.254. Between
192.168.0.1 - 192.168.0.99 I give static IPs. My question regards these devices which have static Ip.
After the change, If I want to assign a PC with static IP, I will set its settings to:
IP: 192.168.0.50 Subnet: 255.255.254.0 //is this value right? Gateway: 192.168.0.1 DNS: 188.8.131.52
But, what will happen to those devices that I have already assign them a static IP? For example, I have a network disk
NetDisk where I have configured its address as:
IP: 192.168.0.50 Subnet: 255.255.255.0 Gateway: 192.168.0.1 DNS: 184.108.40.206
So my question is: When I make the change in my router will
NetDisk will be disconnected from the network, because of its value of subnet 255.255.255.0?
I am asking because it would be a problem as I will not be able to login and change the settings afterwards.
