I'm wanting to configure our Linksys RV082 wired router as our primary DHCP server and then have our Linksys WRT54G wireless router as a secondary DHCP server. My plan is to have them serve different ranges of IPs as shown below (showing host portion only and using CIDR range of 10.10.100.0/24).
The RV082 has the ability via its web based configuration to enter the static IPs even when acting as the DHCP server, which is what I want since we have the routers, servers, and printers configured with static IPs and the local clients configured with dynamic IPs. In addition to setting the static IP, for each entry the RV082 requires you to include the MAC address, name, and whether it's enabled (checkbox). In contrast, the WRT54G does not appear to have the ability to enter information about the static IPs.
This leads me to my question: What's the purpose of setting the static IP entries in the RV082?
- 1-15 -- Static IPs for wired routers
- 16-29 -- Static IPs for wireless access points
- 30-99 -- Static IPs for servers
- 100-126 -- Static IPs for printers
- 127-185 -- Dynamic IPs for local clients served from primary DHCP server (RV082)
- 186-244 -- Dynamic IPs for local clients server from secondary DHCP Server (WRT54G)
- 245-254 -- Dynamic IPs for VPN clients server from VPN server (RV082)
