    Subnetting example 4
    If I add up 128+64+32+16+8+4+2+1 we get 255
    When we borrow a digit from the network we double 256 (256+256) then -(2) Subtract 1 for the subnet IP and 1 for the Broadcast IP

    1. 192.168.00000000 |.00000000 /24 (254 hosts) 256-(2)=254     (2) being the Subnet IP and the Broadcast IP
    2. 192.168.0000000   | 0.00000000 /23 (510 hosts) If we borrow 1 bit from the network side we can double our host. 256+256=512-(2)=510
    3. 192.168.000000     | 00.00000000 /22 (1022 hosts) If we borrow another 1 bit from the network side we can double our host again.  answer 512+512=1024-(2)=1022
    4. 192.168.00000       | 000.00000000 /21 (2046 hosts) If we borrow another 1 bit from the network side we can double our host again.  1024+1024=2048-(2)=2046
    

    If I add up 128+64+32+16+8+4+2+1 we get 255
    Why do we double 256 and not 255

    Thank you Ronnie!

    Please help me with another clarification.
    In Don's video and in his notes he list the Subnet as 172.16.???.000 - 172.16.42.0
    Correct me if I am wrong but shouldn’t the subnet have been 255.255.252.0
    If I am wrong then I do not understand the definitions of:
    Subnet:
    Subnet Mask:

    Truly grateful,

    Confused - Matt

    Hello,
    Network ID
    Subnet IP
    Are they the same thing?
    In my attempt to understand Network+ Subnetting Example #3
    Subnet IP ------ 172.16.???.0 - 172.16.42.0
    First Usable IP - 172.16.???.1 - 172.16.42.1
    Last Usable IP - 172.16.???.254 - 172.16.43.254
    Broadcast IP ---- 172.16.???.255 - 172.16.43.255
    I have been viewing YouTube videos on Subnetting and want to clarify; Is the Network IP discussed in the YouTube video linked below the same thing as the Subnet IP discussed in ITPro Network+ Subnetting Example #3?
    :)
    I found this on helpful: https://youtu.be/nFYilGQ-p-8
    PS I searched the forum but my search results for "Network ID" found results but I did not find the results helpful.
    Thank you for your assistance!

    I was intrigued with Rick Sidewells suggestion of adding a third router. since the routers are in different areas of the house and no easy way to connect them with Ethernet cable. I opted for Ronnie's cloud print and it worked as follows:


    • On the PC that is on the other network open Google Chrome. and login to your Google account.

    • In a new tab, open chrome://devices

    • You’ll see a list of devices already registered with Google Cloud Print, and new devices available on the network.

    • Under "Classic printers,” click Add printers.

    • I added the printer
      You'll see a confirmation that Google Cloud Print has been enabled..

    • I then logged out of my Google account on this computer.
      I now see the printer that is on my wife's network in my list of available printers to print to :)

    Yes! I have two providers with the cheapest plans available on each and the traffic spread out so we have enough speed to watch Netflix on one network while a PC is downloading windows updates on the other network and no unhappy family members. Plus if one network goes down we still have access via the other. :)

    Is this a technique that I could use to configure printer sharing? I have a Motorola home router from Comcast cable on the 10.10 range and an Actiontec router on the 192.168 range. Can you give me a link to directions that you think might work. Printers and PCs on both networks.

    Apple’s smartphone share was 32.6% September when the iPhone 6 was launched and even the larger screen iPhones do not seem to be creating a long-term shift in market share

    Android’s share of the US smartphone market is 58.1% Forbes.com
    Perhaps Android should have been the first choice.
