How to exceed 255 ip address

1 Accepted Solution

Hi @FMComputers ,

 

Yes.
In that case, the parameters would be as follows:

 

Network = 192.168.2.0/23

Range = 192.168.2.1 - 192.168.3.254

Broadcast = 192.168.3.255

 

If there are other devices with the IP parameters assigned statically, be sure to update the mask in these as well.

Hi @FMComputers ,

 

Could you be a little more specific about your problem?


If you mean to be able to address more than 255 devices, this can be achieved with a suitable mask for it.


With a mask /24 you can address up to 254 host

Network = 192.168.0.0

Host = 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.0.254

Broadcast = 192.168.0.255


With a mask /23 you can address up to 510 host

 

Network = 192.168.0.0

Host = 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.1.254

Boradcast = 192.168.1.255

How would you set this up in your router and in tcp/ipV4

Hi  @FMComputers ,

 

Assuming that your network is connected to the f0 / 0 interface and you want to give IP parameters to your network of more than 255 hosts by DHCP:

 

Router(config)#int f0/0

Router(config-if)#ip address 192.168.0.1 255.255.254.0 <-IP address network gateway(192.168.0.1/23)

Router(config-if)#no shutdown

 

%LINK-5-CHANGED: Interface FastEthernet0/0, changed state to up

 

Router(config-if)#ex

 

Router(config)#ip dhcp excluded-address 192.168.0.1 <-excludes the gateway of the pool DHCP

 

Router(config)#ip dhcp pool TEST <-create the DHCP pool

Router(dhcp-config)#network 192.168.0.0 255.255.254.0

Router(dhcp-config)#default-router 192.168.0.1

 

Now, the devices connected to this interface can obtain up to 510 different addresses for the hosts.

Can I keep my ip 192.168.2.0 and just change the Subnet to 255.255.254.0
