DHCP Maximum Client Range on SXR80 - Orbi Pro AX6000

I tried to configure the DHCP Server to assign addresses on a 10.0.0.0/16 network (10.0.0.1 to 10.0.255.254) because I want to use reservations in different "networks" (e.g. 10.1.0.0 for one set of hosts, 10.2.0.0 for another set of hosts, etc.). Unfortunately I seem to be limited to "Starting IP Address: 10.0.0.2" and "Ending IP Address: 10.0.1.254".  The LAN 1 IP Address is 10.0.0.1 and the subnet mask is 255.255.0.0. LAN 2, LAN 3, LAN 4, and LAN 5 are all currently disabled, but they all have their default 192.168.x.x addresses and DHCP ranges. The firmware version is 3.2.6.100. There are no 10.x.x.x networks/addresses used elsewhere in the configuration. The WAN IP is a public IP, so no collision there either. What am I missing?

 

Thanks!

@FormerUser,

 

Welcome to the community! 🙂 

 

I tried to configure the DHCP Server to assign addresses on a 10.0.0.0/16 network (10.0.0.1 to 10.0.255.254) because I want to use reservations in different "networks" (e.g. 10.1.0.0 for one set of hosts, 10.2.0.0 for another set of hosts, etc.).

I regret to inform you that having a /16 network is not possible. 

 

 

LAN 2, LAN 3, LAN 4, and LAN 5 are all currently disabled,

To enable LAN 2, LAN 3, LAN 4 and LAN 5, kindly read pages 109-113 of the Orbi Pro WiFi 6 user manual here

Well that certainly is unfortunate. Back in the box and back to Amazon the Orbi Pro shall go. Thanks for the information, Dane.
