I have been placed in charge of a hotel's wireless network, and I have some questions about IP leasing due the fact that this is a hotel I am dealing with, where new machines are constantly moving through...
When the IP Gateway's DHCP allocates an IP to a specific machine how does it reference that machine? MAC Address? Else?
If the lease is for 3 days and on the first day after the IP is allocated to the machine if the machine goes off the network, say out for the day, can another machine be allocated that IP while it is out of use if it is still within the time frame of the lease?
If I set the lease time for one hour would this cause disruptive performance?
Say someone is downloading a large file, or on an international call for longer than the lease time, does the renewal or rebinding processes drop the connection?
