Hi, You could have something like this: 10.0.0.0/255.255.0.0 # for your 100s 10.1.0.0/255.255.0.0 # for your 1000s 10.2.0.0/255.255.0.0 # for the second warehouse Each network would be capable of handling 65,534 hosts. Also, I don't see any problems regarding mix and match 100/1000. I'd keep them together if they fall into same category/department (workstations?).
