The 24.x.y.z is a class A network, with 8bit netid.
A nm of 255.255.255.192 gives 6 bits for the hostid,
and 32-8-6=18 bits for the subnet id.
ip netid subnetid hostid
184.108.40.206 = 00011000 011100100111111110 010100
220.127.116.11 = 00011000 011100100111111110 000001
Well this means the hostname and gateway are on the
same subnet (and network), and the gateway looks like
it might be correct (often gateways are the .1 entry
of their subnet).
You've probably entered a value incorrectly
somewhere. Double check your settings.
