What is the biggest IP range you can block?

You can block /8 (16,777,216 IPs) though I would recommend /16 (65,536 IPs) or less unless you are really trying to block an entire country and know that the entire /8 range is exclusive to that country.

The correct way to block full networks is with zeros in the IP:  192.0.0.0/16 (192 is the first three of the IP network you want to block.
