I have a LAN with a 380 router. It is a mix of static and DHCP, with the DHCP confined to a specific range. I now have about 200 devices at peak times so am concerned that I will soon run out of LAN addresses. What is the process to add more than 254 addresses? Is that what a VLAN does?
Is that what the Extended DHCP Option does?
I am not using WAN port 3, so should I configure that as another LAN segment? Can I have two different LAN address schemes on the same wiring, as in 192.168.50.x and 192.168.51.x? Or is it pointless to have two WAN ports connected to the same network switch?
