It's 192.168.0.0/24 24 bits in 255.255.255.0. I use it because it was standard for MS ICS and I was using ICS on my Domain Controller. And it's never good to change the IP address range of an Active Directory domain, so I've just kept it the same. I only have 10 or so computers so there's no need for a Class B or Class A range.

Depends, at home I use 172.16.1.0 255.255.255.0

My company's dialup users use 172.16.1.0 255.255.255.0

My company's intranet is switching from 200.0.x.x 255.255.0.0 to 10.0.0.0 255.0.0.0

Don't ask me why some idiot wanted to use 200.0.x.x BEHIND a firewall. I heard the decision was made in 1992, before the company was on the Internet (I joined in 2000).

Strange..... I just got a notification from my firewall that I was scanned on well-known TCP ports from an external IP addy of 192.168.1.1.... my lan is 192.168.0.1. I guess it was spoofed. Why scan via a spoofed addy - you won't get any results back because the packet will be discarded once it reaches major Internet routers.
