    i'm running ewrt 0.3 beta and am wondering if there is any way to have more than 255 active dhcp leases on this device, w/o using another computer or another wireless access point. the idea is to provide a hot spot for 500-1000 simultaneous users. thank you in advance.

    Changing subnet mask

    How about altering the subnet of the DHCP to include more than one class C? (class C = 254 addresses) - class C - 2 x class C - 3 x class C
    etc etc

    Hope that helps?

    i'd be supprised if you could get 1000 clients on a single WRT without it crapping out...
