Yep, same here
Lot of hours of research on this myself to finally get the hang of this subnetting, and still far from being considered anyone's expert. But the above is largely correct, just on the two points marked in red its actually the "subnet mask" in the router you would set to 255.255.255.192 for the four subnet clusters of 62, 63, 63, and 62 available addresses.
Or set the routers mask to 255.255.255.128 for two 126 available address size clusters.
You guys are picking up on this. The big thing to remember is that whatever IP address that you pick for a device will determine what other devices it can see. Also, most routers as a standard will only handle DHCP cleanly/easily for one subnet. What that means is that you would want to set the DHCP range so that it covers only one of the subnets. If you want the router to handle DHCP addresses for multiple subnets, you need to use something like IP-Helper Address so the client can find the DHCP server if it is on a different subnet and so that the DHCP server can assign an IP address to the correct subnet. If you are going to use subnets, it is easiest to use static IP addresses on all of the secondary subnets and leave DHCP to the primary subnet.
