    network mask is dependent on the subnet.  You determine how many hosts you want on each subnet and the mask is based on that. As an example. If I use the subnet mask 255.255.255.0 that gives me 254 addresses that I can use on that subnet. 


    Hopefully, that answers your question.  If not, please post a new question clarifying what you need assistance with.

    Hey Nkosi.  Subnets always tricked me in the beginning.  If you do a quick search for "Subnet calculator" there are plenty of resources that are super helpful.  Ping us if you have questions!
