what is Discontiguous Network ?

I suppose a discontinuous network is when we from one classful network must pass through a different classful network for reach network from the same class.

Brian in neighbour posts give nice example and definition to your question https://learningnetwork.cisco.com/thread/30426

Best regards,

Hi Heman,

Here is the information you are looking for.

You want the second or third link down.

what is Discontiguous Network ?

A Discontiguous Network topology is where you have some network (perhaps network 172.16.0.0) that is divided in two parts (perhaps 172.16.0.0 through 172.16.100.0 and 172.16.101.0 through 172.16.200.0) and to go from one part to the other part you must go through some other different network (perhaps 192.168.1.0).

In the early days of IP routing and subnetting (particularly in terms of classful routing) a discontiguous network was a problem. In more modern network routing (particularly in terms of classless routing) a discontiguous network is not a problem.
