Facing a problem where we are running out of available network addreses, we are currently on bog standard 192.168.1.x range.
Reading about making more ips available and subnets and think i have just about got my head around it.
My question is, is it as simple as saying to my router (currently handling dhcp) use ip range 172.16.0.1 / 255.255.254.0 and it should hand out ips from 172.16.0.1 to 172.16.1.255? all of which are able to talk to each other?
Or have i got wrong end of stick here? On basis of above is there a way of staying on 192.168.x.x and getting more hosts, we are currently using too many but expansion plans wont see more than another 100 at most in next 5 years.
if you need any more detail please let me know.
