I tried to assign the follow IP address to VLAN1 in Packet Tracer and this is what I get.

Switch0(config-if)#ip address 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0
Bad mask /24 for address 192.168.1.0

Can someone plz explain..

    That's not a valid IP for a host it is a network id.

    network- 192.168.1.0
    first host - 192.168.1.1
    last host - 192.168.1.254
    broadcast - 192.168.1.255
