Hey everyone (first post) I've been studying IT for a short while and just started work on IPv6.
Don't suppose anyone can give me a few minutes of their time? I've got a whole book of these kind of questions but a head start with this one would really help.
I need to create a IPv6 design for the requirements of at least 300 networks but no more than 65000 networks.
I need the most appropriate prefix? (I think /50 right?)
then need the network address, Prefix, gateway and first host address for the first 5 networks

Edit: Moved topic from Windows Crashes, BSOD, and Hangs Help and Support to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Lots of help on the web.  Here is a ipv6 calculator




As you can see 50 is not the answer :-)  You may want to check out some of the ipv6 planners online
