Can someone please tell me whether this is a joke or by design - Why cant I change the subnet mask for my superhub (For my local LAN configuration) ?
Currently all the bits are field in up to /24 (255.255.255.*) and I am only left with the last 8 bits to configure.
Can someone please shed a light into this?

thank you for taking the time to reply.
Unfortunately even as a home user and an IT professional designing a network in /24 range does not suffice for my needs (I will be having physical machines, networking devices, virtual machines and other little things that will need an allocated IP address (this is then incorporated in my /22 design)).
Do you think there will be any plans for this obscene limitation to the removed?
If not then I guess I will have to have to work around this limitation.
Any more information would be of great help.

Its not like the Superhub is a Enterprise bit of kit and I doubt it can handle more then 253 connections to the internet with the NAT its got the mappings and collision remapping would likely be too much for it.

Having it sit on the same subnet is one thing but are you expecting to use the hubs DHCP server to handle more then 253 in a table of who’s got what? As well as internet access?

All I can suggest is Bridge Mode with additional router(s) for your subnet(s).

The superhub will only act as a gateway as DHCP / DNS will be delegated to the domain controller.
It is intended in this design to only relaye packets out wards.
Ok but still the NAT the superhub has for the gateway maybe too much for it if too many connections are made outwards to the internet.
None of which matters since the subnet is locked in place...
