Hello, I'm still learning the concept subnetting right now. I just got an subnetting assignment from my course and wondering if I done it correctly? One thing I'm really not sure how to do is the last part, the question ask about to assignment host on 3 PCs and find their range? I'm not sure how can I find that?
*There should be a diagram indicate 3 PCs. Each PC connecting to a Ethernet switch and each ethernet switch connecting to each other with a Serial Port (S0, S1..)*
IP assigned 188.8.131.52
Using the assigned IP address and the diagram above, answer the following questions:
Create a network addressing scheme that allows for 64 subnets
What is the Subnet mask?
Write the correct IP addresses in the spaces below for each administrative task:
Assign SO R1 and S0 R2 to the 24th subnet:
Assign the first 2 host addresses to S0 R1 and S0 R2 respectively
S0 R1: 184.108.40.206
S0 R2: 220.127.116.11
Assign S1 R2 and S0 R3 to the 25th subnet: 18.104.22.168
Assign the first 2 host addresses from this subnet to S1 R2 and S0 R3 respectively
S1 R2: 22.214.171.124
S0 R3: 126.96.36.199
Assign E0 R1, E0 R2 and E0 R3 to the 26th, 27th and 28th subnets respectively and assign the first host address in each subnet to the Ethernet port.
*Below is the part which I'm not sure about*
Assuming that each PC connected to R1, R2 and R3 is a DHCP server, assign the next host address in each subnet to each PC and then show a range of IP address that would be required to issue 500 addresses to connected workstations
PC1 R1: 188.8.131.52??? Range: __________
PC1 R2: 184.108.40.206??? Range: __________
PC1 R2: 220.127.116.11??? Range: __________

here subnet mask is 255.255.252.0
the ip address which comes in between this range is valid if you want you can check by assigning any ip address for the machine you are working with the subnetmask of 255.255.252.0
let us work it out
consider the number of bits used in the host portion
142.204.000001 00.00000001 = 18.104.22.168
142.204.000001 00.00000010 = 22.214.171.124
142.204.000001 00.00000011 = 126.96.36.199
