Why are you using publicly routeable addresses in your internal private network?

Why are you looking to create such a big broadcast network. Having 400 presumably Windows clients all on the same layer 2 network is just asking for trouble.

You need a range 128.18.4.1/23. That gives you 512 (510 usable) addresses from 128.19.4.1 to 128.18.5.255. Your subnet mask will be 255.255.254.0.

But as zx10guy said, "Why are you using publicly routeable addresses in your internal private network?"

The main reason you don't is that you will not be able to get to those addresses that are actually public on the Internet. What's worse: You will not know when you need to. Stuff will just not work.

Never use public IP address on a private network unless they are actually assigned to you.
