DHCP Range

    I just setup tomato on a buffalo airstation. After having used watchgaurd, sonicwall, dd, and every other firewall brand ui tomato is very impressive. But you guys already know that.

    anyway on to my question...

    my normal ip scheme is -
    10.1.0.x - network hardware
    10.1.1.x - servers
    10.1.2.x - clients
    10.1.3.x - printers

    It does not seem possible to achieve this out of the box. The dhcp range is locked in to the router ip address. Is there a way to do what I would like or am I out of luck?

    you have to have all your IPs within the same subnet, but that subnet can be whatever you want it to be. you can then use static DHCP so that certain devices get the same IP every time they send a DHCP request.

    right all of these devices are within the same subnet and i already know devices like printers i can have static dhcp ips for but i am concerned about client pc's that i want within their own range. i shouldn't need (or don't want to) to set a static dhcp address for every pc.

    another issue that has popped up... can i forward a port to range of ip's not just a single one?

    you'll probably need to add additional routing scripts to get this done. Basically from what is here

    Set DHCP to autoassign clients to the 10.1.2.x range
    and static ips for the remainder

    and either write your own routing scripts, or wait for someone to help you on that (=
