Found my internet not working this morning, so I did a DHCP renewal on my router and was given these two addresses within a few seconds of each other. Now these are not the actual network/broadcast addresses (121.99.224.0/23-121.99.225.255; 121.99.254.0/23-121.99.255.255) but I'm pretty sure they're invalid:

Those IP's should work no problems.

 

ipcalc 121.99.224.1/23

Netmask: 255.255.254.0 = 23 11111111.11111111.1111111 0.00000000

Not sure why they weren't working for me, and what's the changes of getting a .0 followed by a .255 :p
