Hi, i was wondering, what kind of device do i need to create a subnet, say my domain is 284.289,288

i want to add 284,289.288.* as my subnet, to route my computers.say my lappy 284.289.288.1

how do i do this?

Those aren't valid domains and, unless you have have used a representation other than decimal, they aren't valid IP addresses either.

Just to clarify, those are not valid "IP Address" ranges, as sparda already said. You can only go up to 255, and even then....anyway.

Draw us a diagram of your network and the IP address range for your equipment. Also, read up on networking and how it works a bit.

AS for networking two machines, you don't need to know all this other stuff really. You just need a router and some form of file sharing setup between the two machines hooked to the router, like windows file sharing, NFS and Samba for linux, or novel services. I think you probably need to figure out exactly what it is you want first before asking a your question.

your reffering to the technical nonsense, i just wrote some numbers, just to demonstrate what im talking about, can anyone concentrate on the answer?

digip gave you all the information you need. If you are on the internet, you are part of subnet, somewhere. Look at your IP address. run > cmd > ipconfig

Once you understand network subnets, you'll understand the answer to your question.

No, people are trying to help by using things known as 'facts'

No, you wrote garbage that illustrates only that you dont understand your own question.

can anyone concentrate on the answer?

How about you concentrate on the answers given so far instead of being abusive?

I dont understand why people get shirty when presented with an answer they dont understand. Look at it this way, if you understood the answer completely as soon as you read it, then you already knew the answer in the first place. The fact that you have to ask means you need to learn, and you do that by reading the information in the given answers, doing to studying and thinking.

If you want 192.168.1.0/24 the subnet mask will be 255.255.255.0. You need to set your router to this mask.

This will give you the subnets for what you want.

Other than that, you need to go into more detail about what you are trying to achive, because despite what your saying about picking random numbers it does not work like this and the answer you will get will be based on what class of private IP blocks you are using. Pick either 10.0.0.0/8, 172.16.0.0/16 or 192.168.0.0/24 to start with and we will take it from there.

Maybe you should concentrate on a coherent question. In order to set a subnet mask for your network, you first need to have a network. Do you have a router? Do you have more than one machine hooked to this router? What is the DHCP or manually assigned address class you are suing from the router? The router will usually set the subnet mask for your network, so all you will need to do is set the machines to get assigned an IP from the router. If you have multiple networks you are trying to manage, then say so, but it sounds like as if you don't even understand what you are talking about. If you do understand, then you wouldn't be asking questions in the first place. People here are trying to help, but when NONE of us seem to really know what the hell you are asking, how the hell can we figure anything out for you?? No one has been rude up to now, although, I am getting a little rattled at the fact that you haven't even read these posts when most of them have offered some answers to a question were not even sure of yet, but should at least point you in the right direction. I see from reading all of your posts, you really don't seem to know a whole lot about computer in general, and if anything, rely on others to do the work for you. What have you to say about that? What have you contributed that was useful or helpful to anyone on this forum? And this isn't trying to start an argument, those where rhetorical questions, because I already know the answers.

Please, think about what you are asking, then read it to yourself. Does your original post make sense to you? Honestly?

GEEZE Dipshit, didnt know I had to spoon feed you, here's your subnet jackass.. and yah, they do work, figure the rest out yourself.

Network address - 192.168.1.200

First Usable address - 192.168.1.201

Last Usable address - 192.168.1.214

Broadcast address - 192.168.1.215

subnet mask - 255.255.255.224

theres your network stuff, doesnt work then tough shit, thanks for playing, insert another quarter.

before anyone else says anything im not gonna come back into this thread. He obviously doesnt wanna know so I dont care, least I gave him the answer before I shut the door.

Lets say you have the following:

Two networks. Network 1 and Network 2.

Network 1 = 192.168.0.0/24

Network 2 = 192.168.1.0/24

Two routers for each of the above networks. Router 1 is on network one so lets say it has a 192.168.0.1 for it's network address. Router 2 is also on network two so lets say it has a 192.168.1.1 for it's network address.

A switch.

Your laptop is plugged into network 1. Now did you want to know:

How to connect your laptop to network 2 so one can ssh in for example?

How to create a 'network 2'?

How to create a 'network 2' on the same router?

None of the above? :)

I think until he comes back and explains in detial his setup, the equipemtn, what it is he wants to do, no one can read minds. We can speculate forever, but none of it will get us anywhere, if he himself does not know exactly what it is he is asking or needs to do.
