The Problem occured while studying for my exams

Problem: I have to design a Network for a Company. The given IP Adress Space is which has to be divided into 4 Subnets. These Subnets share a Backbone, consistig of 2 Core Switches which are connected to the Internet via 2 redundant Routers (HSRP)

My question now: How many IP Adresses are needed for the redundant Router configuration in each subnet?

Sorry if this question is stupid or badly phrased, im a newbee

1 Answer 1


Each router will have its own address. The HSRP/VRRP group will have one virtual address shared by those in the group. (one active, one or more standby's)
