awk getline 8 times and if $3 = 8 when subtracted from 1st line,print

I have kind of a strange one here. I have a file of consecutive /24 ip blocks. If there are 8 consecutive ip blocks which represent a /20 then I need to print the first line. I played around and did not get the results I need, especially when considering that the highest $3 will be is 255 and then start over to 0.

Here is a sample file

What I need to see output is:

I tried something like this but did not get good results
nawk -F"." '{p=$0; v=$3; getline;getline;getline;getline;getline;getline;getline;getline; d=$3 - v} d = 8 {print p}' myfile

First things first: 8 consecutive /24 blocks do not represent a /20 block but a /21 block and only if the lowest third number of the consecutive /24 ranges is divisible by 8.

Typo, sorry that is correct a /21.

Your sample output is not correct!

awk  '{if (++C[$1$2($3-$3%8)] == 8) print $1,$2,($3-$3%8),$4}' FS="." OFS="." file

Nice solution RudiC !

I think it would be better to separate the fields in the index to avoid overflow between ranges.
I made an adaptation to your solution so that the CIDR prefix becomes variable:
awk -F. -v cp=21 'BEGIN{s=2^(24-cp)}{r=$1 FS $2 FS $3-$3%s FS $4} ++C[r]==s{print r}' file

Above was a "sketch", a "draft", and I was thinking about making it a bit more flexible myself. Thank for your proposals; separating the index fields is a good one, as is the variable bit depth for the netmask... Although the requestor asked for 8; we just infer he wants to see if that subnet is "full".
