Determining appropriate DHCP range

view story
linux-howto

http://serverfault.com – Given a LAN with default gateway of 10.5.1.1 and subnet of 255.255.0.0 The DHCP range is currently set in the range of 10.5.2.1 to 10.5.3.254 The 10.5.1.x range is reserved for static IP's. I want to increase the DHCP pool ( the 10.5.2.x - 10.5.3.x range is too small ) Is this DHCP scope limited to the 2.x and 3.x range because of the 255.255.0.0 subnet? I cannot change the subnet in this scenario. When I try to add another range to the DHCP server ( i.e 10.5.4.x ) it will not allow it ( illegal range? ).... It's a Sonic Wall ..
