Hi gurus, i need your help.
I wish to segment my network which uses Class C IP addresses. Currently almost all the ip addresses are used up (254). I wish to create a domain made up of three (3) sites and about 600 pc's. I have the following concerns and i need you guys out there to help me out.
1. Can i have still use my class C addressing to create 3 sites, ie each site having 200 hosts and all in one LAN? What i am thinking of is having something like the following

192.168.1.0, 255.255.255.0
192.168.2.0, 255.255.255.0
192.168.3.0  255.255.255.0

Would this mean i have subnetted my network? Would i be better off using a Class B addressing? I feel there would be a huge waste of Ip addresses. Can someone help me out?
