I am taking Networking Essentials and having a hard time understanding IP addressing. Help me understand the following question.
The IP address of one particular host within a company is 188.8.131.52. The company is attached to the internet, with a Class B license. They currently have 17 subnets, and expect to never have more than 60. They require at least 1000 hosts on each subnet.
A. Based on this information, what is the subnet mask?
I get 255.255.254
B. What is the maximum number of hosts available on each subnet.
I get 1024
C. For the host 184.108.40.206, list the range of addresses available on its subnet.
I get 256-152 = 4 (4*64 = 256)
Now am stuck.
