Subnetting a Class B network can involve some serious thought! As a network administrator, you'll have to know it and know it well. Todd Lammle walks you through clear instructions and simple examples to help you learn this skill.
In my last Daily Drill Down, we borrowed bits from the host portion of a Class C network address. Class C network addresses only have eight bits to manipulate into subnets. However, a Class B has 16 bits to play with. This will allow more subnets with more hosts per subnet than a Class C network ever could.
