# Subnet network question

A company has got a network IP address 193.144.233.0. The subnet mask is 255.255.255.248. How many subnets can be setup and the number of hosts for each subnet? What would the subnet id  be and what would the range of host id for the subnet id be? Can anyone help?

248 is the smallest subnet you can have. You cannot subnet beyond that point.

Not to answer the homework question, but to refute djacosta's statement:
Actually, you can divide even this network into two subnets using mask 255.255.255.252:
193.144.233.0 = subnet 0 subnet ID
193.144.233.1 = host 1
193.144.233.2 = host 2
193.144.233.4 = subnet 1 subnet ID
193.144.233.5 = host 1
193.144.233.6 = host 2

You will loose the use of two host ID's and reduce the total number of hosts from 6 to 4
Officially--subnet zero is not usable anyway, so by strict rules of the game, you can't use the 193.144.233.0 subnet to start with, but you could use the two hosts of subnet 1--.4 and .5 only.
