Subnet Exercise 04

This page contains one exercise based on IP addressing and subnetting. At first the problem definition and some questions are given. Later, the solution of the questions are given. Please, at first try to solve yourself. When you have finished then look the answers / solutions. If you go forward in this way, I'm sure you do better.

[Note: Visit Subnetting Index or type http://hubpages.com/_ccna/hub/Subnet to your browser address bar to learn a-to-z of subnetting. Many examples are there to make you a smart master of subnetting.]

Problem Definition and Questions:

Number of needed usable subnets are....28
Network address is.............................28.0.0.0

Based on the above information, find the followings:

[a]Which class does the IP belong?
                                                             

[b]What is the default subnet mask of that IP?
                                                             

[c]What is the custom subnet mask of that IP?
                                                             

[d]How many bits are required to make the subnet?
                                                             

[e]What is the the total number of subnets?
                                                             

[f]What is the total number of usable subnets?
                                                             

[g]What is the total number of host addresses?
                                                             

[h]What is the total number of usable host addresses?
                                                             

[i]
What is the total number of host bits?

hi 6 years ago

both are wrong...


me 6 years ago

yeah, the custom subnet mask is 255.248.0.0 because the question asks 28 subnets and not 28 hosts


suresh 6 years ago

me is correct

[g]What is the total number of host addresses?

Ans 524288

[h]What is the total number of usable host addresses?

Ans 524286

and this is the right answer for this questions too right?
