Hi,

I am a bit confused, I have been given an address 132.132.0.0/16 and i have to devise a scheme allowing for at least 396 subnets. I think i have to extend the subnet mask to do this, I have worked through the different possible masks and the mask /25 gives me a possible 512 subnets this fits into the criteria i was to use. As there is 9 bits left, to find the number of hosts per subnet mask I use the formula 2^9 = 126 hosts, so the first address for the subnet mask 0 is

Subnet 0 - 132.132.0.1, address range is 132.132.0.1 - 132.132.0.126 and the broadcast is 132.132.0.127

Subnet 1 - 132.132.0.128, address range is 132.132.0.129 - 132.132.0.254 and the broadcast is 132.132.0.255

Subnet 2 - 132.132.1.0, address range is 132.132.1.1 - 132.132.1.126 and the broadcast is 132.132.1.127

How would i work out for the subnet 350 and 396?

Thanks
