    Trying to configure a DHCP pool on a Instant Access point.  Want to exclude some IP addresses on either end of the block.  Am I not looking this the right way?  Seems simple enough, but to me the warning seems indecipherable.

    Do you have a dhcp scope already defined?

    Yes, thank you for responding.  172.22.201.0/24.  Those are my excluded addresses.  Just can't figure out what the programmers want in the fields?

    Define your DHCP scope as 172.22.201.0-172.22.201.255 (Not as 172.22.201.1-172.22.201.254).

    Thanks for the answer.  Very non intuitive.  I already define the block up above that entry.  The entry blocks kind of say excluded not inclusive.  I guess I must be thinking about it the opposite way.
