    A small network and uses the Linksys Router BEFSR81 as dhcp.the default Number of addresses is 50 and starts 10.0.0.100 to 10.0.0.149.
    A new Cisco IP Phone just introduced requires ip addresses and have noticed running out of addreses.
    Can I increase the number to 120 so that the address range would start from 10.0.0.100 to 10.0.0.219, also, I have a VPN device which automatically configures itself for 10.0.0.199 address and this is /24 network configuration.

    Just change the starting and ending addresses. Be sure to leave a set of IP addresses for your static devices? Are you running in house servers? It might be a better idea to set up DHCP on a server instead of letting the router do it.

    Just looked again. Does your Cisco equipment also run a DHCP server? If so and if it is on a differnt network you might want to VLAN that segment
