Changing subnet mask to expand IP addresses

We currently have a network of 222.222.222.0 /24 and we are out of IPs. We want to change the subnet mask to /23.

What IP address ranges will be available if we do that? Currently we have 222.222.222.0-222.222.222.254.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can not change to subnet /23.  You need to change ip network to for example 10.11.0.0.

222.222.222.0 / 23 does not excist.

When done you will have arroung 500 host available....

Mind you 222.222.222.0/anything is publicly routable.  You may encounter routing problems down the line.
