Dear all good afternoon,
we would like to know more about adding multiple LANs with the “Additional Subnet” feature under:
LAN > Network Settings > ? > additional LAN IP Address / Network
We cannot setup VLANs at the moment and we are running out of IP addresses.
Expanding the existing LAN, eg. by changing the Subnet Mask from /24 to /23 is not feasible as several clients have their IP manually set and changing the broadcast address causes a series of disruptions.
Currently we have a .100.0/24 net and we have a number of devices which could be moved to a different LAN address as long as they keep “seeing each other”, so we thought of using the feature to add another untagged LAN .200.0/24 without DHCP to host those devices and free a number of IP addresses on the .100.0/24 network for feature clients.
Are there any known drawbacks in using that function?
Is it feasible for our goal?
Thanks for your help and sory if this was already discussed,
