192.168.l.0 IP address is utilized to distinguish network fragment of IP addresses. For instance 192.168.l.0/24 distinguishes subnetwork where gadgets could have addresses from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254. This subnetwork likewise incorporates addresses like 192.168.l.0 and 192.168.1.255 however 192.168.1.0 is utilized as network identifier and couldn’t be utilized by a gadget. Also, 192.168.1.255 is utilized s a communicate (address which is utilized when some gadget needs to send network parcel to whole subnetwork). In this manner you have 254 free IP addresses accessible for your gadgets and a router.
In 192.168.l.0/24 documentation, 24 implies that 24 bits of the IP address are settled and the rest of the 8 bits of IP address could be utilized to produce addresses on subnetwork.
To characterize network with littler measure of gadgets you have to utilize a number greater than 24. For instance 192.168.l.0/25 could be utilized to characterize a subnetwork where gadgets could utilize addresses from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.127. For this situation 192.168.1.0 is held for network idenitification and 192.168.1.128 will be communicate address. In this network design there will 127 exceptional IP addresses accessible for your gadgets and a router.
192.168.l.0 could be often utilized as a part of directing tables to empower correspondence between various piece of networks. For instance on the off chance that you have two networks which utilize 192.168.1.1-192.168.1.254 and 192.168.2.1-192.168.2.254 as a network address ranges you should add 192.168.1.0 IP address to a steering table to empower correspondence between them. See case on a screenshot underneath.
If you don’t mind take note of that you can’t utilize 192.168.1.0 as a static IP address for any gadget and such task will fall flat or cause interruptions in your network since none of gadgets in 192.168.1.1-192.168.1.254 territory will work.
