Physical Network:

Subnet A 1 : IP A: (mask:255.255.248 and 6 hosts)

Subnet B 2 : IP B: and 6 hosts)

Hi networking experts! I am trying to achieve something with subnetting and subnet masking. The goal is to bring both IP A and IP B in the same subnet. Is it possible by any means to do so via a new subnet mask??

I am really new to networking and I am having a hard time figuring it out!

  • You need to run your address through the steps in this two-part answer, which explains all you need to know about IPv4 addressing. – Ron Maupin Jul 18 '19 at 17:46

if you don't want to touch ip addressing scheme and just change subnet mask then you can change mask from to then both hosts will be in the same subnet which have range from to

  • Thank you for the response! But I shall avoid and Is it possible to bring ( and in a subnet and ( and ) in a different subnet? – Anish Basnet Jul 18 '19 at 17:15
  • No. The usable addresses are through – Ron Trunk Jul 18 '19 at 17:17
  • Like Ron said I will add also is network id address and is broadcast address so you cannot address those 2 ips to hosts. – kubn2 Jul 18 '19 at 17:19
  • "( and in a subnet and ( and ) in a different subnet?" its not possible, – kubn2 Jul 18 '19 at 17:21
