Fermentation should be at 45-55F.  Lagering afterward for 2 months or
more at 35F.

The real question you should ask is...

What is the tempurature range for the "Yeast" I'm using for my Pilsner?

The temp is determined by the type of yeast and the range of temp it prefers.

Re: Pilsner
It's the yeast that comes with the brew, it's just a little 5g packet of dry
yeast.

You'll struggle to make a pilsner with that.

I doubt that, it a yeast packet that came with the pilsner hops, why would
they ship the wrong yeast with the brew?

I reckon Denny is far more qualified than myself to answer that but, no
doubt he will agree.

Well, in the first place, there's no such thing as "pilsner hops".
Secondly, most kits that purport to make "pilsner" actually ship with an
ale yeast, not a lger yeast, due to the additional time, effort and
equipment required to make pilsners (or any lager).  The assumption is
that you can make a pils-like ale much more easily and it'll be close
enough for most of the people buying the kits.

As mention previously, the kits usually include ale yeast because of the
temperature control problem.  If it is real lager yeast, it should say so.
Lager yeast work best at 45F-55F.  If it is ale yeast, colder is better
(but not as cold as lager yeast).  60F would be about the lowest for most
ale yeast to work at a decent speed.  At 70F and above, you'll have too
many "fruity" flavors to be similar to a pilsner.
