There is something strange happening with my OpenWrt firmware. The scope for my DHCP is 100 to 250 in the
192.168.1.* range but the first IP it gave is
Is there any reason it started from 189? Can it be random? I'm sure I have some static IPs configured but only 3 or 4 in the 100 - 200 range.
How does DHCP distribute or choose which IP to give within the scope?
Note: I am using the Gargoyle firmware based on OpenWrt (which works pretty well).
