Ok I'm studying for my network+ exam the only thing I'm seem to be a little unsure on is calculating users and hosts using the subnet masks. Ok so here is the thing you calculate how many subnets by 2n when equals the number of bits so in other wards 2*8 power 256 the concept is the same for hosts except you subtract two you get 254 that gives you your default subnet mask of 255.255.255 but lets say my network needs this is the class c standard. So all I need to do to increase client capacity is adjust my gateway mask address. In other wards if I adjusted 255.255.250 that would give me an extra 38 hosts? And an extra 40 subnets?
