Yes, you need to delete the scope. Make sure you've written down your reservations and scope options first
Do you have anything set up like VLANs, routers, etc?
Did you not get your new scope from them then? If that's the case then yes, you should wait to hear from them.
As you've just demonstrated.Originally Posted by powdarrmonkey

What's your default gateway for the 3.x addresses. The fact you can't ping local addresses is a bit worrying but it maybe that the client has not renewed it address from your new DHCP scope and still has an old 255.255.255.0. I would also check if your address scheme is allocated by the LA you really don't want to be using another schools addresses (thats assume you dont have NAT or a firewall infront of your internet connection)
Make sure the default gateway is setup correctly.
For example our Vigor 3300V router/firewall will only accept connections on 192.168.0.x/22
However we have 192.168.1.x/22, 192.168.2.x/22 and 192.168.3.x/22 that cannot access the router.
(/22 = 255.255.252.0)
DHCP > SCOPE > SCOPE OPTIONS > 003 (Router Name) set to the Router IP.

If your router supports NAT, you can do anything you want, no need for authorization.
@ahuxham: the default gateway doesn't matter in this case, packets within the same subnet are sent by broadcast. If the connection is from an LA, as it sounds, then they almost certainly provide the edge router and gateway so the OP won't be able to do anything with it anyway.
