Subnet Mask

I am using the R7000 with firmware v.V1.0.9.34_10.2.36.  I would like to know if this router can be changed to support class "A" specifications with a subnet mask 255.0.0.0 and LAN address of 10.0.0.1.  If not, which router would you recommend.  I do not need wireless capability.

   I don't see why it couldn't.  Why you'd want to do it is a mystery,
however.  Do you have sixteen million devices?  Is there some actual
problem which you are trying to solve?

   What, exactly, do you (think that you) need?

   The router can have a LAN IP address of "10.0.0.1" with a more
reasonable subnet mask.  Around here, for example (D7000,
V1.0.1.64_1.0.1), ADVANCED > Setup > LAN Setup : LAN TCP/IP Setup:

      IP Address      10.0.0.1
      IP Subnet Mask  255.255.255.0

   If you are "using the R7000", then why not run the experiment?

For what it's worth, doesn't look like can extend DHCP range past inital subnet.

So with 255.0.0.0 and 10.0.0.1, can't do range beyond 10.0.0.x. 
Pretty annoying.
