Is there a reason why I can't set my DHCP range all the way to 254 on fizz router? my subnet is 255.255.255.0, and when i set last ip to 254, i don't get a error message and it says "saved" but when i return to the page, the setting isn't saved. The max i can go to is 253...

  • Pardon my curiosity, but why do you care to assign a device on .254?

     

    Actually if you have configured it to serve as a DHCP service, then it will decide what IPs it will assign.  Sure, you can Reserve IPs, but do you really need .254? What is wrong with anything lower than 254?
