I have two addresses and

As I understand it, there is no way to use masks to separate these 2 addresses into 2 different subnets

Is this correct ?

    Well, that's both kind of correct and incorrect.. You can get close with a netmask of /30 ( has addresses (network), .53 and .54 (hosts) and .55 (broadcast) has addresses (network), .57 and .58 (hosts) and .59 (broadcast)

    So you can well separate those addresses into two subnets, but not use them as host addresses.
