Thanks for the input!
I agree with you, DHCP is the way to go, and I watched a video on the dreamhack network, and they used DHCP as well.
I'm wondering if I'm trying to get too fancy here, maybe I should just use one big subnet with no NAT. There will be about 230 clients on it though.. I'm thinking this might be too big of a broadcast domain, especially considering that for 8 tables, there are 23 clients, on a switch with a 100mb uplink.
If I don't use the router, I could setup a mirroring port on the switch for monitoring the network.
Any thoughts?
