One way I have gotten myself into trouble in the past is interchangeably using 
192.168.0.0/24 and 192.168.0.0/16 on the same network.  The 192.168 space IS 
a /16, but by convention individual 192.168 nets are often /24.  Tools often 
default to offering /24 netmasks... if elsewhere you tried to be too smart 
with /16, perhaps when you edited a config file by hand....  Just some advice 
from the "I bear the scars" file.
