DHCP lease times - what do you set
Just wondering as to fix an issue we are having I was thinking of reducing the lease time and was thinking about the effect.
You see, since we started broadcasting our guest SSID every man Jack of the residents around here have tried to hop on for some free wireless. We use the Ruckus guest login page and thus clients get an IP address and load up the login page. Of course they don't get anywhere but the DHCP lease is left behind and these cheeky so and sos are filling up the DHCP server and I have to keep clearing it out - I do add them to the deny filter but its endless.
I am going to vlan the network in the future but for the moment I was thinking of reducing the lease time so that they are cleared quicker? I guess this has the effect of increasing network traffic but will we see a noticeable effect?
