    what subnet calculation to use for 70-216?

    Cisco and Microsoft do not use the same formula to calculate the number
    of possible subnets:

    Microsoft: Number of subnets: 2^number-of-subnet-bits

    Cisco: Number of subnets: 2^number-of-subnet-bits - 2

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=KB;en-us;q164015
    supports this claim but the study guides do not. Not sure which one to
    use for the exam



    Any help would be appreciated

    Hi,
    you should look at the question carefully before answering.

    Microsoft: Number of subnets: 2^number-of-subnet-bits
    This is the number of subnets that are created.

    Cisco: Number of subnets: 2^number-of-subnet-bits - 2
    This is the number of subnets you can use to connect devices.

    So it depends on what is asked..
