Configure DHCP in MX75

Hello people

 

I would appreciate your assistance in the following matter.

We bought for our company the next hardware:

 

Meraki MX75

Meraki MS120-48 Ports

Meraki MR44 (Two Units)

 

We currently have 100 users, but i want to plan ahead, in case the company will grow.

 

I wsih to configure the DHCP in my MX to provide 300 ip addresses, and was wondering if the next configuration makes sense:

 

IP Address:

192.168.0.1

Network Address:

192.168.0.0

Usable Host IP Range:

192.168.0.1 - 192.168.1.254

Broadcast Address:

192.168.1.255

Total Number of Hosts:

512

Number of Usable Hosts:

510

Subnet Mask:

255.255.254.0

 

 

IP Reservation Range: 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.0.40

DHCP Client Range: 192.168.0.41 - 192.168.1.254

 

Meraki MX (Router) - 192.168.0.1

Meraki MS (Switch) - 192.168.0.2

Meraki MR44 (First) - 192.168.0.5

Meraki MR44 (Second) - 192.168.0.6

 

Does this configuration look OK?

Any recommendation would be helpful 

 

Thank you

Personally….I’d have a separate scope for the management IPs of my network devices and other scopes/subnets for data, voice, wireless, servers etc

@Roey1984 I'd avoid the 192. private IP range for commercial use as nearly everyone's home has that and if you want to use client VPN with split tunnelling then it really won't work well.

 

Better off to us 172.31.10.0 - 172.31.11.255 or similar as that's a lot less likely to clash.

I didnt think about it, good idea!!

 

I understand

But if I reserve a range of ip`s, isn`t in the same?
