    Hi folks,
    I have a Linksys WRTG54GL v(1.1) running with DD-WRT (dd-wrt.v24_std_generic.bin).

    I got the following Class C net:
    192.168.100.0 /255.255.252.0
    So it is possible to create that large DHCP range from 192.168.100.0 to 192.168.103.255?

    Best I know it is not possible using normal GUI methods. It may be possbile to run some sort of rc_startup trickery but it is beyone my knowledge. Maybe someone else knows more or different?

    so it is not possible to configure this DHCP Range?:

    192.168.100.1/22 till 192.168.103.254/22

    No not through the GUI. It may be possible to configure dnsmasq as the dhcp server with a larger scope.

    I'm trying to understand why you would want to have such a large range setup. I see no benifit in trying to serve address in 192.168.100.xxx, 192.168.101.xxx, 192.168.102.xxx, 192.168.103.xxx. If you use addresses like this you'll have to configure static routes for each subnet to enable all of the devices to see each other.
