Supernetting
Defined: separates a network into multiple logical defined segments, or subnets.
What is the default subnet mask for a Class C network?
255.255.255.0
Convert the following subnet mask into its dotted-decimal equivalent: 11111111 11111111 11111000 00000000.
255.255.248.0
On a network with an IP address of 140.133.28.72 (or 10001100 10000101 0001110001001000) and a subnet mask of 255.248.0.0 (or 11111111 11111000 0000000000000000), what is the network ID?
140.128.0.0 (or 10001100 10000000 00000000 0000000)
As a networking consultant, you've been asked to help expand a client's TCP/IP network. The network administrator tells you that the network ID is subnetted as 185.27.54.0/26. On this network, how many bits of each IP address are devoted to host information?

You have decided to create 254 subnets on your Class B network. What subnet mask will you use to accomplish this?

Your company has leased a Class C network whose network ID is 205.61.128.0. You want to create 16 subnets within this network. One of the subnets will have an extended network prefix of 205.61.128.64. What will be the broadcast address for this subnet? (Hint: If you know the number of hosts per subnet, you can easily determine the broadcast address.)
205.61.128.79
