Another Subnet in the same domain/network RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    At the moment we have one subnet for our network i.e. 10.10.1.1/24, now I need to have a second subnet on the same network / domain but different IP address arrange say 10.10.2.1/24, how can I achieve this? we don't have managed switch

    Any help/idea would be much appreciated.

    Regards

  • You'll need to get a layer three switch to handle the routing or change the network mask.

    Thank you Dave for your response.

    With a layer 3 switch, do you mean creating a VLAN?

    What do you mean by change the netwok mask?

    Thanks again

  • 1.) Yes

    2.) You could change the mask to 255.255.254.0 allowing for 512 nodes.

  • Thanks again for your quick response.

    In regards to the point number 2: we need to have another subnet with different IP address, not to extend IP address range which next year we'll be looking into it as well since we are running out the usable ip addresses.

  • Then that pretty well seals it. You'll need to get a layer three switch.
