this can not be:
Address:        11010100.10010101.1001 0100.00000000
Netmask: = 20   11111111.11111111.1111 0000.00000000
Wildcard:           00000000.00000000.0000 1111.11111111
Network:     11010100.10010101.1001 0000.00000000
HostMin:        11010100.10010101.1001 0000.00000001
HostMax:      11010100.10010101.1001 1111.11111110
Broadcast:      11010100.10010101.1001 1111.11111111
Hosts/Net: 4094                  Class C

so, what you have? Two /24 or one /20?
The two nets are in your /20 and what is with the other nets in it?
And what is your transfer net to your ISP? You get a /24 as tansfernet????

you can route with a 486 maybe pentium 1 or 2 (how much traffic is on it) and 
a floppy:
