I don't have a binary calculator at hand now so I have to guess.

You defined a network with mask Now the '88' MUST be on a network boundary for the '240' mask. In other words, if the last 4 bits of '240' are zero, the last 4 bits of you network definition have to be as well. I am not sure that '88' ends with 4 zeros, but I don't think so. Choose the next lower address which complies with the 4 zeroes, which is 80 I think. '88' will be included, so no problem for your expansion.

The definition of your new net should be and you have a range from to
