Computer Networks | Network Layer | Question 2
In class C , if subnet mask is 255.255.255.224 then calculates number of subnet?
(D) None of the Above
Explanation: Default subnet mask of class C is 255.255.255.0.
In subnetting Number of bits are borrowed from host bits.
Given Subnet mask 11111111.11111111.11111111.11100000
3 bits are borrowed form host bits as default subnet mask is 11111111.11111111.11111111.00000000
Number of Subnets = 2^n, n is number of bits borrowed from host bits i.e 3
= 8 subnets possible.
