    All right, I understand subnetting for the most part, and can calculate
    subnet masks with the best of them, but one thing has now confused the
    bejesus out of me.....


    using a network number of 192.168.0 and a subnet mask of

    I know that we have 14 host bits, what I don't understand is, that
    apparantly the valid ID's would start at

    Can you not use a subnet here with hosts from (subnet) to (broadcast), and why...

    with the subnet mask of you would actually have only 4 host
    bits cuz you would be borrowing 4 of those for the subnet address.

    The first 'usable' subnet address would
    you cannot use the first subnet (the zero subnet) i.e. because
    remember, that is part of the 'network' address....
