Some special IP addresses

Subnet Mask calculator

We have seen an introduction to Subnet Mask calculations previously. Lets see an example to make the use of the IP calculator easier to understand. We decided to use as our basic C address and we want to have eight(8) subnets. If we consult the table seen previously for eight subnets the number of bits to enter in the IP calculator is 3, as shown in the next image.

The IP calculator displayed the subnet mask and the IP numbers in each subnet, including the subnet address and broadcast address. It does not tell you the IP number of the default gateway, but we know that the first IP number of a subnet is the IP number of the default gateway, therefore and are the default gateway addresses for respectively subnet 0 and subnet 1.
