Why am I in various registrars?141.101.104.186

Simply because one of those various registrars is your interwebz provider. Sobsz (talk) 19:55, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

I'd like to see an updated version, 10 years later. I think all the green would be gone. Microbe

He forgot the 172.16-172.31 private block. Way late, I know but I only just noticed. 172.68.253.203 01:51, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

Since the table is for the first octet only, it's not possible to show the 172.16-172.31 block. Drawing a table big enough is left to you as an exercise. However, he shows Class E addresses (240-255) as "unallocated", which is a bit misleading because routers are required by RFC 1812 to discard packets with these addresses, which are reserved for "future use". 172.68.142.89 18:21, 15 June 2018 (UTC)

However, 10.0.0.0/8 is a full class A subnet that is on the same footing as 172.16.0.0/12 and 192.168.0.0/16, yet is labeled "VPNs" in this comic. 172.68.59.144 21:35, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
