Most small routers limit users to the 192.168.x.x ranges. 

Even if a router allowed use of the 172.16~ or 10~ spaces on it's "LAN" ports, 
there's no guarantee that a corporate renumbering wouldn't strand the router 

I'd say it's unlikely, but every time I do, there's a little voice in my head 
whispering "Famous Last Words ... ".
