1. IP addresses are divided into two parts: the _____________________ in the high-order bits and the remaining bits called the ________________________ used for host numbering within a network.
2. Interestingly, in the early stages of the development of the Internet Protocol, the network number was always the most significant eight bits. This method allowed for only _____________________
3. In 1981 the addressing specification was revised with the introduction of classful network architecture. This allowed for a _____________of individual network assignments.
4. The diagram shows the physical topology of a LAN (IPV4) setup. In suggesting suitable IP addresses for Router A, 192.168.2.255 would .....
5. A subnet mask tells a computer _________________________ and which it needs to access via a router.
6. The most recognizable subnet mask is 255.255.255.0. It's the default subnet mask used by most ...
7. In a subnet mask, 255 means that ________________________________________
8. In a subnet mask, a 0 means that part of the IP address can vary from the host, but can _______________________
9. The MASK itself is a 32-bit number that is applied to an IP using a bitwise logical AND comparison to split the address into the _______________________________________
10. This identical prefix for the IP addresses indicates that these hosts...
11. An example of a B class network with the IP address 188.8.131.52 with a corresponding 16-bit network notation would be written as:
12. What is the value of the subnet mask in this example that works out the network address?
13. What has been done in these examples to find the network address?
14. In this example the IP address 184.108.40.206 has a network address of ______________ with the remaining numbers being the usable host identifier.
15. Subnet mask is a mask used to determine _________________________. An IP address has two components, the network address and the host address.
