I'm currently deploying a new site with an IP address range of 172.22.101.0 - 172.22.160.0 and wondering is it best to go with the subnet mask of /16 or /24? Each subnet will have no more than 2 or 3 hosts connected to a maximum of 100 hosts at this site. Each subnet is also on its own vlan so for example subnet 172.22.101.0 is vlan 101. At another site I have deployed I'm using the IP range of 172.23.101.0 - 172.23.160.0 with a /24 subnet and it is ok on that network there is the about 150 hosts connected what is the implications of using a /24 compared to a /16 subnet mask.
Many thanks for your reply in advance.
