homework assignment?

DomBenson

You haven't provided enough information - at the very least it is necessary to know what network space is available to use - and if IPv4/IPv6/both.

Beyond that, if it is a real world question, it would be helpful to explain where the numbers come from, and what is expected in terms of future growth. For example a /23 could accommodate 500 hosts, but there is hardly any free network space left. It is also a lot to have on one LAN segment; it would normally be preferable to split into 3+ /24 subnets. It might also be more worth considering route aggregation over maximum density utilisation.

If it is in fact a homework question, as PurpleSkys suggests, then you should say so, and also say how far you've got, or what specifically you don't understand; there isn't much point in just asking for an answer!

    Yes homework.
    No network space has been given. IPv4 addressing. Seven sites connected over a WAN architecture.

    OK, well let's start at the beginning. What's the smallest subnet that can hold each of those numbers of hosts? (e.g., as I said previously, a /23 can hold 500.) So work it out for 300, 150, 50, 10, 2.
