  5. You are a senior network engineer at True North Technologies. Your boss, Mr. Martin, asks you to create a subnet with room for 12 IPs for some new managers.

    circle.jpg G. The mask can also be written as

    circle.jpg H. The mask creates 65,536 subnets total from the default address space.

    circle.jpg I. Each subnet supports 256 valid host IPs.

    circle.jpg J. Each subnet supports 254 valid host IPs.

  9. Indy and Greg have configured their own Windows 8 PCs and connected them with crossover cables. They can’t seem to share their illegally downloaded MP3 files, however. Given their configurations, what could be the problem?

    Greg’s configuration:



    • circle.jpg A. Indy is using a broadcast ID for his IP.
    • circle.jpg B. Greg is using an invalid mask.
    • circle.jpg C. Indy’s IP is in one of the zero subnets.
    • circle.jpg D. Greg and Indy are using IPs in different subnets.
  10. You are given an old router to practice for your CCNA. Your boss, Dave, has spent a lot of time teaching you subnetting. Now he challenges you to apply your knowledge. He hands you a note that says the following:

    “Given the subnetted address space of /29, give the E0 interface the first valid IP in the eighth subnet. Give the S0 interface the last valid IP in the 12th subnet. The zero subnets are available. You have 10 minutes. Go.”

    Which two of the following are the correct IP and mask configurations? Choose two.

    • circle.jpg A. E0:
    • circle.jpg B. E0:
    • circle.jpg C. E0:
    • circle.jpg D. S0:

    • circle.jpg F. S0:
  11. The following questions are part of a Subnetting SuperChallenge. This monster question will stretch your subnetting skills, especially if you give yourself a time limit. Start with 10 minutes and see if you can get down to 5.

    The Vancouver Sailing Company has four locations: a head office and three branch offices. Each of the branches is connected to the head office by a point-to-point T1 circuit. The branches have one or more LANs connected to their routers. The routers are called Main, Jib, Genoa, and Spinnaker. The company has been assigned the address space to work within.

    Your task is to choose the correct IP address and mask for each interface, based on the information provided. Remember that no IP address may overlap with any address in another subnet, and that the required number of hosts for each subnet will affect your decision as to which address to use.

    Here are the known IP configurations for the routers:


    • S0/0: /30
    • S0/1: /30
    • S0/2: /30
    • Fa1/0: /23
    • Fa1/1: /23


    • S0/0: Connects to Main S0/0
    • Fa1/0:
    • Fa1/1: 30 hosts needed


    • S0/0: Connects to Main S0/1
    • Fa1/0:
    • Fa1/1: 100 hosts needed
    • Fa2/0: 100 hosts needed
    • Fa2/1:


    • S0/0: Connects to Main S0/2
    • Fa1/0: 500 hosts needed
    • Choose the correct IP and mask assignments for each router:

      • circle.jpg A. Jib Fa1/1:
      • circle.jpg B. Jib Fa1/1: 172. 16.8.64/27
      • circle.jpg C. Jib Fa1/1:
      • circle.jpg D. Jib Fa1/0:
      • circle.jpg E. Jib Fa1/1:
