This question already has an answer here:
Suppose I have a network with IP address 192.168.10.1/16.
This network can hold up to 65536 machines, from 192.168.0.0 up to 192.168.255.255 (65534 machines without the network ID and broadcast address).
I have multiple questions :
Can I have a machine with the IP address 192.168.10.1 in this network?
Is the network with IP address 192.168.0.0/16 the same network as mine? If yes, it this true for any network with IP address 192.168.x.y/16?
Is my network ID address in this network (supposedly the address 192.168.0.0) the same as the network ID address in its subnetwork 192.168.10.1/17 (also supposedly the address 192.168.0.0)?
