I'm looking to upgrade from AT&T DSL service (originally sbcglobal) to U-verse; I currently have a Motorola Netopia DSL Modem. Local network is configured as 172.16.0.0/23. I have disabled the wireless radio, and connected a Cisco/Linksys EA4500 running in bridge mode to serve as the Wireless access point. Questions concerning the U-verse modem:
1) Can I configure local network as 172.16.0.0 rather than 192.168.1.0?
2) Does DHCP support static mappings that I can configure?
3) Is there a limitation on number of DHCP addresses that can be active? Seem I saw somewhere that U-verse would support "up to 10 devices." Not sure where that limitation might be imposed... With PC's, tablets, game consoles, smart phones, and wireless printers, I can't live with 10 device limitation.
Thanks for information

Thanks for the quick response. Since I have my Cisco/Linksys in bridge mode, I don't need to put the u-verse modem into bridge mode anyway. That capability would provide some options if I wanted to use the Cisco as a router, So far (with DSL) it's worked fine to use the Cisco as a wireless access point, and let the AT&T supplied modem./router do all the layer 3 and above stuff, i.e. routing, NAT, firewall, DHCP, etc.
