Just when I think I understand...

Sorry to be dense... So if I have a network with 15 computers, but I use a
subnet on the LAN of, then each computer would only get 1/256th
of the available bandwidth, leaving most of the available bandwidth unused?

So to work this system effectively I'd need to number my hosts from .2 up
and use the most restrictive subnet possible? Or lose available bandwidth?

In this case (with 15 computers) as we have a gateway, and network broadcast
address, the tightest subnet would be a /27, leaving us 30 available
hosts... and much wasted bandwidth - that doesn't sound very dynamic - or am
I completely missing the point?
