What is the significance of the Sub-net Mask Number of 255.255.255.0 for Network Connection?
I am curious about the meaning or significance of the subnet mask number of 255.255.255.0. This number seems to always be static in both home wired and home wireless network connections. What does each set of numbers represent? Does each set of numbers represent a network with the actual number of 255 being the maximum number of computers which can occupy that network? Much like a network within a network or subnet?
Any shared thoughts to this question will be appreciated.
