Choosing 192.169.0.0

Hi ,

If I want to assign Ip adresses to my LAN systems in the network 192.169.0.0

Is there some problem with assigning the IP adresses to my LAN.

What should be the other settings like subnet mask etc.

You can assign IP from 192.169.0.1 to 192.168.0.254
and Subnet Mask will be 255.255.255.0

If you have more than 254 computers/devices in the network. You can give a Subnet Mask of 255.255.0.0 to get 65024 IPs

You cannot use 192.169.0.0 as a private network range!

You cannot use 169.254.0.0 as it is for autoconfiguration of network cards as mentioned above whereas 192.169.0.0 can be used as private address.
Internally there is no problem for using it. but it is considered as public range.

I will give you an example.
Consider a website with name www.test.com has an IP of 192.169.0.200.
When your internal client try to open www.test.com it will not go out of your network.

The only problem is that you will not be able to reach any outside device with IP address from 192.169.0.0 network, your packets will not be routed outside.

Since it is a public IP range, it was assigned to some company and if that company has an email server's ip address from 192.169.0.0 range, then you will not be able to send emails to them

These are the Private IP ranges which will not have conflict with external IPs
10.0.0.0 - 10.255.255.255
172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255
192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255
