That does not look correct. Just to see how it works, I just chaged the netmask of my pc from /24 to /16, it is working
This pc1 could reach all other machines on 192.168.1.0/24
network with the above configuration, also it could access internet using 192.168.1.1 as the gateway.
192.168.8.0 to 192.168.11.255. It could very well reach 192.168.11.1. But on the other hand 192.168.11.1/24
could reach only 192.168.11.0 to 192.168.11.255 machines.
