I’m a total noob to this stuff and im not sure what to do here
I have a Peplink Balance 305 and it’s IP is 192.168.1.1 we have and IP Range set for 192.168.1.20 - 192.168.1.250
We have some devices on ips 192.168.1.10-20 that i really dont want to move.
So my problem: I need more IPs we are growing and running out of IPs with all the Cell Phones, iPads, Work stations on the network.
How would i go about expanding this range? Is it as simple as i think it is, and just adjusting the subnet mask under the IP Settings in my LAN config?
I’d prefer the IP range expand to 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.256? Is this possible? or will adjusting the mask to 255.255.254.0/23 expand me into 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.1.256?
Also will expanding this subnet create a disconnect for users on 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.2.1 ?
