It would make a good reason but the numbers given are correct.  The 
netmask is the same as a /21. is on his 
network[1].  I notice he misspelled kernel though, with no network he 
had to type it in, it's still possible there is a mistake that he didn't 
notice and typed what he thought he saw.



Netmask:   11111111 11111111 11111000 00000000
Network:   11000000 10100000 10000xxx xxxxxxxx
Gateway:  11000000 10100000 10000011 00010101
