I don't understand how 255 numbers seperated by little
tiny dots translates into bits and 1 and 0's.

Can someone help me better understand how to distinguish

There are 8 bits that can make 256 (0-255) unique arrangements of 1's and
0's.

that means each . seperates an 8 bit no (bin)...BINARY if u sitll aint got
it
ie. 255.0.0.0 = 11111 11111 .00000 0000. & 16 0s + a dot in between ...I've
a couple of rums in me so thats the best i can do tonite...

128 64 32 16 8 4 2 1
1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1

8 bits = 1 byte well 1 octet

IP address is 32 bits (4 bytes)

11111111 = 255
11111110 = 254

Binary: each bit represents a decimal no. see top.

Have a look at cisco.com they explain IP addressing alot better tha
MS,
There are 10 kind of people in the world. Those that speak binary an
those that don't

Remember this: Computers only 'talk' in 1's and 0's --
binary.

of binary numbers.

255 is the binary equalivant of 11111111.

A subnet mask tells the router/computer which part of the

255.255.255.0 = 11111111.11111111.1111111.00000000

The 1's are the network "bits" and the 0's are the
host "bits".

Are you trolling, or are you seriously asking this question?
