DHCP Resubnetting

Hello All,

I have a subnet that will be running out of ip addresses soon, because we are merging floors. I have read some post in here that state resubnetting is not a good idea, because of going over the 250-300 ip addresses per subnet create network latency (there are approx. 100-110 users, but it is ip phone and computer). Anywho here is my situation.... My subnet is 172.22.8.x/24. I have a core switch that has a few vlan's on it with subnets of there own; 172.22.5.x, 172.22.12.x, 172.22.24.x...etc all /24. If I resubnet the .8 network to a /23 will I have to change any of the other default gateways or just this one since they are all separate vlans? Also, if I choose to add another subnet to the .8 subnet will that affect any of the others. I assume I would have to delete and start a new one regarless of the way I proceed. Any suggestions as to the better method?
In addition to, I have other switches in the environment, would they need to be changed?

If you change the scope 172.22.8.0 /24 to 172.122.8.0 /23, its new IP range will be
172.22.8.0 - 172.22.9.255, with 172.22.8.1 through 172.22.9.254 as assignable IPs.

I don't see why you would need to change its default gateway, though.

Now it's gateway is 172.22.8.225. So as long as the gateway is in the allotted subnet it would not matter?

Not that I can see, no.  

There is a problem with CIDR being broken in older versions of windows, but that problem doesn't appear until you get smaller than /16 with a 172.16-32 subnet.
