Assume it has been decided to use two class C IP addresses18.104.22.168/24 and one 22.214.171.124/24. Use VLSM to subnet and allocate IP addresses for all branches as shown in the first table below..
At the same time assume it has been decided that branch 1 and branch 2, are to be connected with a router, say Router 1, and branch 3 and branch 4 are to be connected with a router, say Router 2, etc. as indicated below.
Router 1 connects branch 1 and branch 2, Router 2 connects branch 3 and branch 4, Router 3 connects branch 5 and branch 6, Router 4 connects branch 7 and branch 8, Router 5 connects branch 9 and branch 10
In addition Router 1 is supposed to be connected with Router 2 and Router 3. Router 2 is also supposed to be connected to Router 4, while Router 3 is to be connected to Router 5. Finally Router 4 is required to be connected to Router 5. Allocation of IP addresses to the connections between the routers is mandatory. You are now requested to do so.
A. Answer the blank spaces in the second table below:
Branch name Maximum number of computers Network address Broadcast address Subnet mask
Branch 1 49
Branch 2 58
Branch 3 42
Branch 4 119
Branch 5 37
Branch 6 25
Branch 7 3
Branch 8 4
Branch 9 5
Branch 10 5
Connection between Network address Broadcast address Subnet mask
Router 1and Router 2
Router 1and Router 3
Router 2and Router 4
Router 3and Router 5
Router 4and Router 5
B. . Assume RIP is configured on all routers. Draw a diagram that shows all network connections. Label also the interfaces of the routers. Write the routing table formed at Router 1 and Router 4 after convergence
