I have an address of 10.--.204.0 at my network. Could you help by telling me how one would go about adding more ip's than the 254 I currently have available? I also have a .205 but this is used or just managment and is routed to its own server. It all comes through the same router (for i can only find one) and I guess is split up in the switch. Am I right in thinking that, since I use the first 8 ports in each switch for mgnt clients, that the switch is configured to have 2 Vlans? I really need help getting to grips with this. I have read ans read about subnetting but all my subnets are 255.255.255.0. I assumed that this meant that I have a 24 bit network address and 8 bits for hosts giving me just 254 addresses to use 'in house'. If this is the case, does this mean that when this was set up, someone purchased the 204 and the 205 connections separately?! I am probably making no sense at all but if anyone out there can help me out a little to understand this I will much appreciate it.......

Some ISP use the 10.x.x.x to get fake …
