Given an IP address 184.108.40.206 with a subnet mask of 7 bits. How many hosts and Subnets are Possible ?
@Na462 is there any info about the NID part? because if subnet mask is 7 bits that means NID +SID part=7bits so rest of the 32-7 bits are there for the hosts .. i.e 25 bits for the host ..
@Soumya Tiwari How?
Given ip address corresponds to class B so 16 bit are for net id and for rest 16 bit given 7 bit corresponds to subnet Id and 9 bit to host id part.
So total subnet=2^7-2(as 2 address are used as network id and broadcast address)
Similarly for host=2^9-2=510 host for each subnet
@Na462 Please go through this link,
As per previous standard we used to subtract 2 addresses but as per new standard 2^n subnet are there for n bit subnet.
