 # How Many Subnets Are In A Class C?

## How many subnets can you create if you borrow 3 bits in a Class C network?

8 subnetsIf you look at the design requirement of 30 hosts per network, you will discover that I only need 5 bits in the host ID portion of a Class C network to satisfy my requirement.

By borrowing 3 bits, I can create 8 subnets: 192.168.

1.0..

## How many subnets does my network have?

Total number of subnets: Using the subnet mask 255.255. 255.248, number value 248 (11111000) indicates that 5 bits are used to identify the subnet. To find the total number of subnets available simply raise 2 to the power of 5 (2^5) and you will find that the result is 32 subnets.

## What is Class C in IP address?

Class C. In a Class C network, the first two bits are set to 1, and the third bit is set to 0. That makes the first 24 bits of the address the network address and the remainder as the host address. Class C network addresses range from 192.0.0.0 to 223.255.255.0.

## What are the 3 major classes of an IP network?

Currently there are three classes of TCP/IP networks. Each class uses the 32-bit IP address space differently, providing more or fewer bits for the network part of the address. These classes are class A, class B, and class C.

## How many hosts are in a class C?

254Thus, for a Class C address with 8 bits available in the host field, the maximum number of hosts is 254. Today, IP addresses are associated with a subnet mask.

## What are the 3 classes of subnet mask?

So, the three default subnet masks are 255.0. 0.0 for Class A, 255.255. 0.0 for class B, and 255.255.

## How many subnets are in a Class C network?

What are the subnet addresses? Answer: 256-240 =16, 32, 48, 64, 80, 96, 112, 128, 144. 160, 176, 192, 208 and 224 (14 subnets found by continuing to add 16 to itself.)

## What is a Class C subnet?

Class C networks use a default subnet mask of 255.255. 255.0 and have 192-223 as their first octet. The address 192.168. 123.132 is a class C address.
