In general, if you have X.Y.Z.W and subnet mask 255.0.0.0, or 255.255.0.0, or 255.255.255.0. the 255 octet indicates the fixed range of the network ID, and 0s indicates that IPs you can use..Example x.y.z.w subnet mask 255.255.255.0, the x.y.z are fixed, and w are the usable IPs that you may use for your network. as you notice 0-255 = 256 IPs - 2 ( 1 IP for Network ID, and 1 IP for Broadcasting) = 254 usable IPs...
