DHCP starting address

Is the DHCP starting address the point at which DHCP starts allocating IP addresses?

Re: DHCP starting address

yes.
.1 will always be the hub/gateway IP though.

Re: DHCP starting address

Thanks for the quick response. I have fixed ip addresses set out by device type and want to stop DHCP isertin addresses within that range.
Thanks again

Yes and no. Mine starts on .2 but addresses get signed randomly and not in numerical order

varies by implementation. not particularly relevant though. it is the first address within the range that it will allocate, whether that actually happens to be to the first device that requests an address doesn't really matter.
