LucF - cool calculator.  Just to clarify, if you plugin the subnet mask 255.255.255.250, it will calculate 5 addresses.  However, the last address(255) is a reserved broadcast address, so you really only have 4 usable.

so, how many hosts can be supported?

192.168.1.32 (one of the machines)
255.255.255.250
192.168.1.1

Then you can use 192.168.1.32 t/m 192.168.1.36 and 192.168.1.37 will be the broadcast adress

hmmz, I feel a bit left out on this one :-(

>how can I tell what the beginning number is?
Just use the calculator I posted above and it'll tell you. Just giving the IP-adres of one of the clients show the rest.

ohhhhh


So putting in that info, it shows that the range starts at 32 and goes up to 37.  37 is reserved for broadcasting?

Yes, that's right.

>I did not see the Split points area!
It was just below the question just before you accepted ErnieExperts comment as an answer.

>Can I go back?  Redo it?
You can ask a question at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Community_Support/ about this, or you can post a "points for LucF" question linking to this one, your choice.
