Just out of curiosity, how do you create a network with over 254 computers using TCP/IP? Is it possible?

Yes you use what is call subnetting.

Here is a good start with the basics of TCP/IP including subnetting. For more information on it, just start digging into that word.

To answer your question as far as creation, just look at the World Wide Web as 1 big network, because it is....!

The means by which this HUGE network is created is through subnets and routers. Routers have "routes" that lead from one point to another, interconnecting the many subnets throughout the world.

The internet as you know it is this one large network of subnet masking. The "internet" has no subnet, it is just a concept you can say. Each ISP is assigned a certain range of IP addresses it can assign to users based around this masking principal. The entire group as a whole can be considered "the internet".
