It would also then involve reconfiguring every PC, and would
break connectivity to every other /24 subnet in the rest of the
corporate network that you had also incorporated into the larger
subnet. Then there are issues with some routing protocols not
You don't need VLAN trunking for this to work - it is a fairly
standard setup when a site has outgrown the /24 subnet it was
originally assigned. The PCs can NOT talk directly to each other
because they _expect_ to talk to a router - their subnet mask
tells them to do that.
