Hi,

I have IP address 10.180.10.18 and subnet 255.192.0.0.
What?
 size of the network part of the address
 size of subnet part of the address
 size of host part
 number of host per subnet
 subnet number
 broadcast address
range of valid ip address in this network

Thanks,
JT

Network address is 10 bit - 10.128.0.0/10
Subnet part is 2 bit
Host part is the remaining 22 bits (32 - 10)
There are 4194302 hosts per subnet
Not sure about subnet number, but probably it is the third subnet from four (previous beeing 10.0.0.0/10, 10.64.0.0/10 and next 10.192.0.0/10)
Bradcast address is 10.191.255.255
Range of IP addresses is 10.128.0.1 - 10.191.255.254

255.192.0.0 is in binary form 11111111.11000000.00000000.00000000 and
10.180.10.18 is in binary form 00001010.10110100.00001010.00010010

From this two numbers most of the answers can be made

> Network address is 10 bit - 10.128.0.0/10
There are (first) 10 bits set in binary form of subnet/netmask. If you make an bitwise AND operation between your host number and the subnet mask you get 10.128.0.0 which is your network.

> Subnet part is 2 bit
First 8 bits (of the 10) denote an A class address, next two bits can be considered subnet part.

> Host part is the remaining 22 bits (32 - 10)
And the 22 zeroes in the subnet (if writing out all 8 bits of each number)

> There are 4194302 hosts per subnet
If you have 22 bits for host part, then you have 2^22 = 4194304 possible IPs
First IP is reserved for the network address and the last IP for broadcast address. So there are 4194302 IP addresses left for hosts.

> Not sure about subnet number, but probably it is the third subnet from four (previous beeing 10.0.0.0/10, 10.64.0.0/10 and next 10.192.0.0/10)
Given that the two bits in second octet denote the subnet, you can construct 4 subnets: 10.0.0.0/10, 10.64.0.0/10, 10.128.0.0/10, 10.192.0.0/10

> Bradcast address is 10.191.255.255
As said broadcast address is the last IP address in the subnet.

> Range of IP addresses is 10.128.0.1 - 10.191.255.254
10.128.0.0 is network address, 10.191.255.255 is the broadcast address, Host IP addresses are all in between.
