Please explain a subnet Tags: LAN Subnet Networking Last response: August 7, 2012 10:09 PM in Networking Share rasmasyean August 4, 2012 2:56:01 AM In this article: http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/S/subnet_mask.html Quote:The full address is: 10010110.11010111.00010001.00001001 The Class B network part is: 10010110.11010111 and the host address is 00010001.00001001 If this network is divided into 14 subnets, however, then the first 4 bits of the host address (0001) are reserved for identifying the subnet. Can someoneplease expain the "14"? I don't get it. More about : explain subnet smartguy90 August 7, 2012 4:45:45 AM Why would a network be devided into 14 subnets ? Even if it is, they're saying that the first 4 bits of the host address, which is the computer become the subnet. Networking + certificate? I think I am 100% wrong by the way. rasmasyean August 7, 2012 10:09:20 PM I was thinking it's a typo and no one noticed. Perhaps it should be 16. Subnet: 10010110.11010111.0000 (1) 10010110.11010111.0001 (2) 10010110.11010111.0010 (3) . . . 10010110.11010111.1111 (16) Can't find your answer ? Ask !
