Need help with IP Subnets? Play the Cisco Subnet Game

Ed Tittel Ed Tittel Profile: Ed Tittel

Every now and then, I run across a networking teaching tool that’s either extremely helpful or amazingly innovative. Even more rarely, there’s an element of fun involved. You’ll find all this, and more in the Cisco Learning Center with “The Subnet game.”

The subnet game takes you to Area 51 where you have to set up networks and foil hackers

As you play your way through the game, you advance in levels, and you are presented with increasingly interesting and more challenging problems. It’s a great way to practice IP addressing and subnetting skills, and pretty good fun into the bargain. And beyond the need to register with this site, it’s free!

You can also use this as a tool to assess your “inner nerd.” If you can’t stop playing, and suddently find “real work” a distraction from playing The Subnet Game, guess what? Your IN index is pretty high!
