Was there an problem with Frank's response from earlier?

rename 192.168 10.0 dir*

It is a nice simple solution. You don't have to loop, or use extra
commands, just copy and paste that one command to your machine, and all
directories will be renamed. I just did it on 1000 directories, and it
took 0.052 seconds:

[mike at test-box test]$ ls -ld dir-192.168.0.* | wc -l
[mike at test-box test]$ time rename 192.168 10.0 dir*

real    0m0.052s
user    0m0.012s
sys     0m0.040s
[mike at test-box test]$ ls -ld dir-10.0.0.* | wc -l
