Refer to the exhibit. A user is configuring a PC with the IP settings as displayed, but the operating system will not accept them. What is the problem?
- The DNS settings are not configured.
- The subnet mask is wrong.
- The IP address is not a usable host address.
- The gateway address is not configured.
Explanation: The subnetwork address 192.168.1.16/28 has a range of valid IP addresses from 192.168.1.17 – 192.168.1.30 that can be allocated to hosts in that sub-network. The last IP address of the subnetwork is 192.168.1.31 and this is the broadcast address for that given subnetwork. It cannot be assigned to a host and thus the operating system will not permit that setting.
