I will ask my question through an example.

I have a school with 2 campuses with the network address of the school to be (host range: - Suppose I will subnet in order to give each campus its own hosts. So campus 1 will be for example and campus 2 will have 135.135.50. Can I now repeat the subnet process for and, separately, in order to get more hosts out of it in order for example to distribute them for computers in each campuses or printers or any other device?

    Your network addresses will need to be a power of two, so can be subnetted into and, and one or both of those can be cut in half.

Your questions is a bit vague....

But if you have a /26 you indeed have 62 host IP addresses. If you want to split that subnet evenly between 2 sites you need to further subnet it to 2 x /27 subnets, in which each have 30 (IP) host addresses per Campus.


Implementing different subnets will separate your networks from each other thus the two campuses won't be able to communicate with each other unless there is a router between them. Sub-netting would not give you extra IP addresses if you still want them to communicate. But if this is not your concern yes you can divid your network using the range ip addresses you have. You can use which gives you host addresses for network A and which gives you host addresses in network B. If you need 3 network you can continue the same pattern. For instance, - and leave the second part (network B) unchanged as
