    Are the following IP addresses in the same network segment? If not, what network do they belong to?

    192.168.1.56/24
    192.168.2.68/24

    How did you get your answer?

    You are right - it is a homework question. But my book mentions NOTHING about it, and my professor isnt a very friendly guy, so I like looking to the internet for answers. If the internet cant help me, then I'll ask the professor.

    So if you guys know the answer, PLEASE tell me and explain how you got it!

    okay, here is the deal. 192.168.1.XX and 192.168.2.XX are NOT in the same network segment. Now the question you need to ask yourself is "why". The answer is actualy very simple. If you read up on subneting, this will actualy explain itself. I'll give you a hint, they are both class "C" address.

    Actually as you type them they are on the same network.

    In the original question they are not.
    192.168.1.56/24 (i.e. 192.168.1.0 mask 255.255.255.0)
    192.168.2.68/24 (i.e. 192.168.2.0 mask 255.255.255.0)

    Another hint, but you still get to figure out how to explain...

    I know that they are not on the same network segment. What I dont understand in the question is since they are not on the same segment, what network do they "belong to". What kind of answer is he looking for? An ip address?


    This is my first network class, so please go easy on me... Not everyone knows everything about computers and networking, like some of you seem to assume.

    Ok, let me take a stab in the dark here. I think I may understand it, so if someone can let me know if the following is right/wrong, I would greatly appreciate it.

    192.168.1.56/24 and 192.168.2.68/24 are on different segments.

    So,

    192.168.1.56/24 belongs to the 192.168.1.0/24 Network
    192.168.2.68/24 belongs to the 192.168.2.0/24 Network


    Am I right?

    You got it. :wiggle:

    if you need any help, there is a great site that explains subnetting, I'll see if I can find it again.

    also Cisco gives a pretty decent explaination. http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/701/3.html
