Can anyone tell me if an IP Address of 204.245.255.163 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.126 is a valid address to be routed on the internet?  And if so how is this accomplished, as far as I can tell it is an invalid address but I am no routing expert.   Thanks in advance for your help.

nope not a good address for internet use.  It creates a broadcast and 99% of routers will kill broadcasts

Kabaam -

Thanks for the quick response.  Quick follow up question - wouldn't it be 255.255.255.128 that would be the broadcast subnet?  to my understanding that is as far down as you are allowed to subnet.... meaning that .126 wouldnt even be a valid subnet.  Thanks for your help.
