When you say range do you mean two different ranges on the same subnet like and then Or do you mean two different subnets like Usually it will hand out IP's sequentially. So if you have it set up like in my first example of different ranges on same subnet then once it has handed out all the 1-10 and the dhcp server has a record of a lease for a given IP in that range it will then start handing out in the 45-55 range.
