The simple answer is yes, add another scope to DHCP and the LAT.

The more complicated answer centers around network design, segments and subnetting.

You could also use a 23 bit mask (255.255.254.0)instead of the 24 bit. That would double the number of available addresses. But the other answer is correct - you probably have network design issues you need to deal with. If you have more than 254 devices on a segment, it's time to look into some routing solutions.

192.1.1.1/254 is a network and 192.1.2.1/254 is another network yuo might want to go to a class B network if you keep adding or learn to subnet.
