I have Wireless Internet with a USB modem and got what seems to be a Class A IP allocated (first byte is decimal 10).
ipconfig /all shows a subnet mask of 255.255.255.252. I know that the ones are for the network and the zeros are for the hosts but how many hosts are for 11111111.11111111.11111111.11111100?
Shouldn't the subnet mask be 255.0.0.0 for a class A network?
What is it that I am getting wrong?
I need a simplified answer, as I have difficulty understanding long and technical answers, due to a lack of computer knowledge.
