10.0.0.10/27... what is the ip range?

By andres_leon ·
This is probably a very easy question to answer to most network experts...

i have a network diagram indicating my rnage of ips is 10.0.0.10/27. What is my actual range? How do i determine the range based on the 27?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

10.0.0.1-31 is the range.
The 27 is converted to a 255.255.255.224 subnet mask.
To do that, count the high order bits.
255 255 255 224
11111111 11111111 11111111 11100000
256 ? 224 = 32
32 - 2 = 30 the 2 represents 1 for the network address and 1 for the broadcast address.

The first answer is substantially correct but I just wanted to add that when you are talking about a range of IP addresses, the convention is to use the network address and the subnet mask rather than a host address and the subnet mask. In your case the network address is 10.0.0.0 and the subnet includes the addresses 10.0.0.1 through 10.0.0.31. Your host address of 10.0.0.10 is actually right near the middle of that subnet.

All the subnet mask of 27 tells you is that there are 32 possibleaddresses per subnet (a whole mask would be 32 bits so if 27 bits are the network part, the host part would be 32-27 or 5 bits and two to the fifth is 32) and you always subtract two because the network address and broadcast address are not generally useable.

Similarly, a /26 subnet mask would provide 62 useable addresses (32-26=6 and two to the sixth is 64 minus the two unuseable addresses) and a /28 subnet mask would provide 14.
