Please Whitelist This Site?

I know everyone hates ads. But please understand that I am providing premium content for free that takes hundreds of hours of time to research and write. I don't want to go to a pay-only model like some sites, but when more and more people block ads, I end up working for free. And I have a family to support, just like you. :)

If you like The TCP/IP Guide, please consider the download version. It's priced very economically and you can read all of it in a convenient format without ads.

If you want to use this site for free, I'd be grateful if you could add the site to the whitelist for Adblock. To do so, just open the Adblock menu and select "Disable on tcpipguide.com". Or go to the Tools menu and select "Adblock Plus Preferences...". Then click "Add Filter..." at the bottom, and add this string: "@@||tcpipguide.com^$document". Then just click OK.

Thanks for your understanding!

Sincerely, Charles Kozierok

IP CIDR Addressing Example
(Page 3 of 4)

Second Level of Division

Let's say we set aside subnetwork #0 above for future ISP allocations. We then choose to divide the second subnetwork, into four. These we will then further subdivide into different sizes to meet our customer needs. To divide into four groups we need two more bits from the host ID of subnetwork #1, shown highlighted and underlined next to the original subnet bit:

01000111 01011111 00000000 00000000

These two bits are replaced by the patterns 00, 01, 10 and 11 to get four sub-subnetworks. They will be “/18” networks of course, since we took two extra bits from the host ID of a “/16”:

Sub-subnetwork #1-0: 01000111 01011111 00000000 00000000 (71.95.0.0/18)
Sub-subnetwork #1-1: 01000111 01011111 01000000 00000000 (71.95.64.0/18)
Sub-subnetwork #1-2: 01000111 01011111 10000000 00000000 (71.95.128.0/18)
Sub-subnetwork #1-3: 01000111 01011111 11000000 00000000 (71.95.192.0/18)

Each of these has 16,382 addresses.
