# How do you find the host range of a subnet?

## How do you find the host range of a subnet?

You can figure out how many hosts you can have in your subnet by subtracting the number of network bits from the number of total bits: in other words, 32 total bits, minus the number of network bits. Let’s use 26 as an example. A subnet with 26 network bits has six bits available for the host IP addresses.

**How do I know my host range?**

To find the valid host range, turn all of the host bits off and then turn them on.

- 10.0 is the network address because all host bits are off.
- 10.1 is the first valid host.
- 10.254 is the last valid host.
- 10.255 is the broadcast address because all host bits are on.

**What is host range?**

Host range describes the breadth of organisms a parasite is capable of infecting, with limits on host range stemming from parasite, host, or environmental characteristics. Parasites can adapt to overcome host or environmental limitations, while hosts can adapt to control the negative impact of parasites.

### How do you calculate the number of subnets and hosts?

To calculate the number of possible subnets, use the formula 2n, where n equals the number of host bits borrowed. For example, if three host bits are borrowed, then n=3. 23 = 8, so eight subnets are possible if three host bits are borrowed.

**How many hosts can a subnet have?**

1.0. You need to create 5 sub networks each network has a maximum of 10 hosts. We can only use the first 8 bits for out subnets as these 8 bits have been allocated as host addresses. So Subnet masks of 255.255.

**How do you calculate subnets and hosts per subnet?**

This means that to create at least 18 subnets, 5 host bits must be borrowed. To calculate the number of possible hosts per subnet, use the formula 2h – 2, where h equals the number of host bits. The reason two addresses must be subtracted is because of the network address and the broadcast address.

#### What is the valid host range for the 255.255 255.248 subnet?

**What is host range limited by?**

Moreover, the actual breadth of the host range can be reduced by barriers that prevent contact between vectors and hosts, and the unsynchronized seasonal timing between (1) available infected hosts in a viremic stage and feeding activity of vectors and (2) available uninfected species and infectious vectors in a given …
