hash every IP in the same /24 net block to one identifier so that e.g. someone bouncing their cable modem probably would still hash to the same token.

Not reliably. For example, the Deutsche Telekom owns several pools of IP-ranges, and randomly assigns an address from a random IP range when reconnecting. (Their internal routing must be interesting ...)
