Actually, the default netmask for a 192 address is /24

Class A is 1-127
Class B is 128-191
Class C is 192-223

But, yes, this is definitely the area to look in to.  What is the
netmask on the router itself for the interface you are attached to.

If you do not have access to the router, you could also adjust your one
machine's IP address to have a zero in the third octet instead of the
current value of ten.

I would also question what the router is providing.  The 192.168.x.0
networks are considered private IP addresses and cannot be directly
connected to the public Internet.  They must pass through some sort of
"NAT" or "Network Addressable Translation" device, perhaps the router. 
In that case, some of the lower end devices may not support the
"supernetting" you are doing in the 192 range and you may need to stop
changing the third octet to ten and set your netmasks to the more
appropriate /24 (255.255.255.0).
