IP Subnetting Made Easy

One of the great things about having a blog is I can do whatever I want with it, this post is on learning IP subnetting and I have found a good video to go with it, so I am bumping it up to today and adding the IP subnetting video, one of the many training videos from Cisco, will and possibly some more info later.

If you’ve ever struggled to learn IP subnetting, here is a detailed bookmark for you. Essentially, subnets are smaller networks inside of a larger one, breaking up IP networks helps avoid wasting IP addresses and this little guide will make it seem easy. Wish I had this when I first started to learn networking and Cisco routers, would’ve made it much easier. Years later, I had a teacher give me some of the same advice and I thought, where have you been.

IP subnetting is a fundamental subject that’s critical for any IP network engineer to understand, yet students have traditionally had a difficult time grasping it. Over the years, I’ve watched students needlessly struggle through school and in practice when dealing with subnetting because it was never explained to them in an easy-to-understand way. I’ve helped countless individuals learn what subnetting is all about using my own graphical approach and calculator shortcuts, and I’ve put all that experience into this article.
