What are the larger churches using for public WiFi DHCP? We have over 2000 clients on a weekend and our public WiFi DHCP server struggles to keep up.
We are currently using Open DHCP on a Windows 2012 R2 server. I would love to use Windows DHCP but I can’t afford to pay for CALs for all of the public clients. I use Windows DHCP on our private network and we have no issues with DHCP on our private network.
We have a SonicWall NSA 3600 and I tried using DHCP on it for public WiFi but it struggled more than Open DHCP.
What happens is people all of a sudden stop receiving addresses. Once the crowd dies down it starts working again.
I know there are larger churches than us out there that have tackled this issue. I would appreciate any guidance! Thank you!
