Excluding Traffic

If I make an exclusion for my office staff network. Let's say subnet 10.1.1.0. How does GA know to filter out only my network and not someone else in the world who has that same ip... Doesn't GA just track external ips? So how does my internal subnet look to the world at that point?

10.1.1.0 is a local IP address that is only visible INSIDE your organization's firewall. OUTSIDE the firewall, there is a different number, and THAT is the number you need to use in GA.  Search for 'what is my ip' to see what your outside IP number is.

Yes, I understand that. But I have a staff and a guest network. How would I go about only excluding the staff network?

Thanks!
