    I have a WRT54G V6 and I have it set it as a static IP 180.xxx.xxx.xxx Subnet 255.255.0.0 and I want to use it as a DHCP server also passing out addresses in the same range and subnet mask.

    The problem is, the pull down box does not give me the option to select 255.255.0.0 Is there anyway to change that? Any firmware upgrades?

    As it is I have it set up and everything works, but because my printers are on a differant octet I can't print to them

    firstly 180.xxx.xxx.xxx is not a Private IP address range. are you sure you want a public IP address for it? secondly most linksys routers are Class C devices and do not allow Class A or Class B Subnet masks. any reason you would want a Class B subnet to pass out a possible 65536 IP addresses?
