Hi folk

I' am wondering !

Do all the Modems/ Routers have the same IP address ( 192.168.1.1 ).

Thanks for your explanation in advance.

Yes and what this translates to is... a call to the HTTP server listening for requests on that IP, usually on Port 80.

That does not "find" your gateway address - that lets you log into your router. If the router is actually using something different, then that set of numbers will not work. Typing "ipconfig" in a command window will show you what your gateway is, no matter what address it is.

Mine for instance, is 192.168.10.1, and your method will not work on my machine. When I was on a Comcast Business connection (SMC router) a couple of years ago, it was 10.0.0.1

There are several types of non routable IP networks. 192.168.1.xxx is one of them (part of the 192.168.xxx.xxx non routable block). No real world Internet system has an IP from this Class C network. Which is why it is commonly used on small networks as the gateway address (the IP of the router) on small private networks.

10.xxx.xxx.xxx is a part of the first type of non routable space for Class A networks.

So I understand from this that the gateway address is the Modem/router address .

Is that what you exactly mean ?

Re: Modem/Router IP address

Yes...

How it works is... when you go to a web address, say CR4 for example, your web client looks in its local IP cache info for the IP of where you want to go. If it does not find it, it then sends the lookup request to your gateway address, the router then sends the request to a DNS server listening for lookup requests (normally provided by your ISP).

The response is provided to your web client, the response is the routable IP address of the CR4 HTTP server. Your web browser then send out the request to the web server at the IP that was provided to it by the DNS session.

As that IP is outside of your local private network, the request gets sent to the "gateway" IP, your router. Your router then performs a NAT (network address translation) session on the packet from your web browser and then sends the request out to the real world IP of the CR4 server. Which then sends the data back to your router... which performs a NAT session on the incoming data and forwards the data to your machine.

Thanks for explanation and information.

But what about the computer machine it self ? does it have different IP address ?

Re: Modem/Router IP address

Yes... normally your computer is assigned an IP from a "pool" of IPs that a DHCP (dynamic host connection protocol) server running on your router gives to it when your computer requests a "lease", it does this when it first turns on. The IPs in the pool are also in the 192.168.1.xxx Class C network.

Well - Is it possible to change the computer IP address - if a used one is purchased for example ?

Yes... all operating systems will try for a DHCP lease unless programmed to use a specific IP address.

One would have to change the "Scope" the DHCP server in the router. Like range it uses to give different computers there IP addresses, in order to free them up.

It is useful for the PC when opening ports when playing multi player games over the Internet.

This Site lists lots common devices on how to setup your router.

One needs to do "nothing" with the router to change your computers IP address. All you need to do is go into your network card's TCP/IPV-4 properties, change it from 'request IP address" to "use this IP address", enter the IP address you want to use, along with your subnet mask, and default gateway.

Ran my network for years with such static IP settings. As long as you are careful to avoid conflicts there's nothing to worry about.

Ran my network for years with such static IP settings. As long as you are careful to avoid conflicts there's nothing to worry about.

I have done that in the past and works ok.

But now I have a modem that adds new DHCP Leases below the gateway IP and its really handy when setting Servers or PC's up.

Tip: With windows is much quicker to run "\\computer IP" in question browse connections to shares and map network drives etc. A little corner cutting in time.

It is the routers address from the LAN side - your local network only. From the WAN side (that's the rest of the planet) its going to be a completely different number, assigned to the router by your internet service provider. If you go to a site such as "whatsmyip.com" it will tell you what your "external" ip number is.

Re: Modem/Router IP Address

No

They all have two addresses:

One for the communication with the outside world, this address is assigned by your internet supplier when your modem announces himself on the network. Most used technique is DHCP. While geting the IP address the router also gets to know other servers addresses that he needs to be able to finds his way on the internet (DNS server)

One for the local area network (LAN), which is in many cases 192.168.1.1

The router will bridge the local requests to the internet for each client on his LAN side, announcing himself as the DNS.

Behind the IP address system is a rather decent system worked out, with reserved and free numbers, broadcasting channels, ...

Do some wiki reading and master yourself.
