I think you are mistaken here, with netmask 255.255.255.224 you can
have network 192.168.0.0 (from 0 to 31) and 192.168.0.32 (from 32 to
63), but not 192.168.0.16 going up to 47. The address and netmask must
align, if you configure 192.168.0.16/255.255.255.224 you will actually
have a network that goes from 0 to 31, not 16 to 47.
