Hi,

Look like you are referring to extend the available IP for your network instead of just extending the DHCP pool/IP range.

  1. You must extend the LAN network for the require maximum host that need to supported.

Example: Extending from maximum 256 hosts to 512 hosts

You need to change the Subnet mask from 255.255.255.0 to 255.255.254.0

Subnet mask for 256 hosts : 192.168.93.0/24 (255.255.255.0)
Subnet mask for 512 hosts : 192.168.93.0/23 (255.255.254.0)

For more information regarding to IP subnetting please refer to the URL below:

  1. Change the DHCP IP range from

192.168.93.10 - 192.168.94.250 Subnet Mask: 255.255.254.0

Thank You

Hi,

Sorry as i may give you the wrong IP range.

You should use the following IP range for 512 hosts:

Network: 192.168.92.0/23
Broadcast: 192.168.93.255
HostMin: 192.168.92.1
HostMax: 192.168.93.254
Hosts/Net: 510

DHCP IP range can be define:
192.168.92.10 - 192.168.93.250 Subnet Mask: 255.255.254.0

You can easily calculate this by using Subnet Calculator:
