What of you want to divide that into two separate subnetworks ? This can be done through subnetting.


Technically speaking, the subnet make is a 32 bit number that is assigned to each host to divide the 32 bit binary IP address into network and node portions. It does not accept random numbers.The first value of a subnet mask must be 255, 154, 252, 248, 240, 224, and 128.


The network IP address and the subnet mask will be accepted by the computer, which will then use a binary AND operation to combine them.


A subnet mask is present regardless of the fact that you might have never needed to use subnetting . If you have a Class C IP address,then your network subnet mask is and finally, if it a class A , your subnet mask is
