Subnetting - How To Calculate Network AddressJan 11, 2012
Given the IP address of 172.16.10.22 and the network mask of 255.255.255.240... answer the following:
What is the network address?
What is the broadcast address?
What is the valid host IP range?
What I have done so far:
Part 1 - Broadcast address
172.16.10.22 - 10101100.00010000.00001010.00010110
255.255.255.240 - 11111111.11111111.11111111.11110000
Researching different ways to find the Broadcast address I took the binary IP address and replaced all numbers with 1's for the host bits identified in the subnet mask and came up with:
172.16.10.31 - 10101100.00010000.00001010.00011111
Is that the correct Broadcast address?
Part 2 - Network address
I am not sure what is meant by the network address and all my research has come up with either MAC addresses (obviously wrong) or CIDR notation...How do I calculate the network address?
Part 3 - List of valid IP's
Using the same address 172.16.10.22/28 I did the following:
28 is closest to 32 (block wise) so 32 - 28 = 4... 2 ^ 4 = 16 (block size)
IP address listing:
and so on...
The IP address in question is 172.16.10.22 and falls in the 172.16.0.0 - 172.16.15.0 block...
Is this the correct list of valid IPs?
