My IP address 153.0.00.0 range and under local area connection status it is showing my Subnet mask is 255.255.255.0
Well I'm not sure what I'm asking really. It just seems like it should be 255.255.0.0 (According to the picture above)
Can you look at a IP and just know what a subnet would be.
I'm still not sure what the heck a subnet mask really does and what the purpose is. If your IP address is going what your given by the ISP or what your assigning for your internal IP. The subnet is just going based off what your IP address and there wouldn't be multiple outcomes of what your Subnet mask could be.
Also, since your here... I'm reading subnetting does not increase the number of IP addresses available. It increases the number of network IDs and, decreases the number of node IDs per network.
To be honest I'm really confused. What the heck do the mean by network. Network IDS. Nodes ID?
Obviously I know what a general network is.
Network ID would be using your internal IP (I think). According to the picture below Class C range. 192(Root).168(Network).1(Network).1(The computer/router I'm using). So NETWORK ID: 1 192.168.1.1. NETWORK ID: 2 192.168.2.1
Node ID: To be honest I have no Idea what a Node is.
Sorry guys. I should probably look at all these things individually and fully understand them piece by piece. I've been drinking monsters all day so my mind is racing.
