I'm sure any networks above 191.x.x.x can't be any larger than class C.
If it works for you, then so be it... But I'm sure my Windows machines
wouldn't let me set a netmask like that for a 192.168 address...

That almost caught me out too, it is valid on a /16 subnet, it wouldn't
be on a /24 though.
192.168.0.0 is the network address on a /16.
