Depends on your personal preference. I prefer to use 10. for infrastructure and 172. for DHCP

Yep - personal preference

We use
192 for the wireless
10 for the clients (single CPE's)
and 172 for the DHCP things....

No matter WHAT you use....

Make a IP Plan and STICK to it... If you are going to instal lots of clients keep this plan updated and backed up... because - oh boy - if things go wrong - it'll give you a headache you'll NEVER revcover from....

Put Auto Backup Scripts on your routers and Auto E-Mail Schedulers to keep the entire network baced kup in one place.
