Increase Addresses

  1. Yes, useing 252 in the third octet of the mask will put....


    ....into the same subnet with 1018 host persubnet [(255*4)-2].

    I wouldn't do it, I think it is a bad idea to go over 300 hosts per subnet,
    but to prevent a "newsgroup war",...yes it will work.

    The way large subnets like that would correctly be handled is to break them
    up somewhere further down the line as the traffic moves down other routers.
    In otherwords you would "super-net" them at the top which helps create
    smaller, simpler routing tables,..and then divide them back up again at the
    bottom. Kind of like a "pyramid". So in the end you still keep the number
    of hosts per segment low. I fact that is how the Internet actually
    works,...with the ISP's being about the middle portion of the "pyramid".
    The big Internet routers at the top (above the common ISPs) do not maintain
    route table entries for every little subnet further down the "food chain".
