The "zero" network problem has to do with subnets of classful networks.
For example the subnet was not recognized as a valid
subnet in the original classful networking specification, since the 8
but subnet (3rd octet) was all zero bits.

The network is a valid Class C network. There is no subnet
part of the network address, since 192.168.0 is the 24 bit network
