There's a drop-down list in the upper right where you need to select "SP" if you want to configure the FHC printers (10.x.x.x).
This is something I'd like to address sometime in the future when we get time. I want to show all assigned IPs and their zones so you don't have to remember to switch between the zones. This would give a general overview of everything currently assigned. I'd like to move the zone dropdown list into the form and have it only control which IP addresses get populated in the IP dropdown list.

I would start looking for a way to reduce the lease times, including calling the GSC if necessary.
To be a problem, I'd have to average 200 devices per ward. I don't think I've seen that kind of usage.

On the upside, I've seen a short lease cause a connection glitch when it's renewed. At least on my home-class router. With a 24 hour lease, that's not going to be a problem.

I think you'd start running into AP/network limitations far before you'd see that happening. The APs we use in meetinghouses are not high density APs like you'd see in large businesses or school campuses. High density APs are expensive and the benefits aren't worth the cost in meetinghouses.
