If you don't understand what you've read using google I fail to see how we can explain it to you any better.

The following link is what I consider to be a fairly clear, easy to understand explanation of a subnet mask and what it does.

Give it a read and see if that doesn't help to explain it better.

I'd try but I know my limitations all too well and I am not a teacher.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

I understand that a sub-net mask (correct me if I am wrong, CurtR) is a routers place on a network. For example, if you have a network with one router connected to the internet, it's subnet mask would be if you have 2 routers, with one on the internet and one connected to that router, the one on the internet would be and the one inside that would be (the next level up.) if you have three routers, 1-to-1-to-1, it would be .0, .128, .192 and so on. That is how I understand it. Otherwise, don't mess with your router's subnet.
