If my internal network dhcp is set to provide ips in range from 2-200 and I want to set a couple of devices to get the same ip every time, should they be on the same subnet with their ip outside the 2-200 range or within it?
I.e. Dhcp is from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199 should I set the device to 188.8.131.52 or out of the range like 184.108.40.206?
I'm ticking the box that says 'always use this ip for this device'
Also, I could set it in the device that needs the static ip itself (out of the dhcp range), would that be better than in the router?
