Exclude full IP address range

Most of my competitors are large ISPs with large IP address ranges. I want to exclude them from accessing my Adword/Display campaigns. However with the wild card only being for the last digit, I quickly run into the 500 IP Address limit. One competitor alone will use the complete limit.

 

Is there another way to enter IP addresses to encompass a larger IP address range?

Simple answer: NO. IP exclusion can be set only for specific IPs. Not for a range.

Thanks for the fast and precise answer. Yikes! may have to reconsider Adwords and start looking harder at Facebook, etc, as costing me too much to have competitors click on my Adwords and Display
