whats an ip address


An Internet Protocol address (IP address) is usually a numerical label assigned to each device (e.g., computer, printer) participating in a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication.[1] An IP address serves two principal functions: host or network interface identification and location addressing. Its role has been characterized as follows: "A name indicates what we seek. An address indicates where it is. A route indicates how to get there."
The designers of the Internet Protocol defined an IP address as a 32-bit number[1] and this system, known as Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4), is still in use today. However, due to the enormous growth of the Internet and the predicted depletion of available addresses, a new addressing system (IPv6), using 128 bits for the address, was developed in 1995,[3] standardized as RFC 2460 in 1998,[4] and is being deployed worldwide since the mid-2000s.
IP addresses are binary numbers, but they are usually stored in text files and displayed in human-readable notations, such as 172.16.254.1 (for IPv4), and 2001:db8:0:1234:0:567:8:1 (for IPv6).
The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) manages the IP address space allocations globally and delegates five regional Internet registries (RIRs) to allocate IP address blocks to local Internet registries (Internet service providers) and other entities.

my router can not access dhcp.Why?


A DHCP Reservation is a permanent IP address assignment. It is a specific IP address within a DHCP scope that is permanently reserved for leased use to a specific DHCP client.
You can configure a DHCP reservation in your DHCP server when you need to reserve a permanent IP address assignment. You can use these reservations for DHCP-enabled devices like print and file servers or other application servers which always have the fixed IP address on a network.
To configure a DHCP reservation, follow the steps provided below:

Step 1:
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: To learn how to access the web-based setup page on a Mac computer, click here.
Step 2:
Click Setup > Basic Setup.

Step 3:
Make sure that the DHCP Server option is Enabled. Click the DHCP Reservation button if you want to assign a fixed local IP address to a MAC address.

Step 4:
When you click on DHCP Reservation, a new web browser window will pop-up. Click the Select checkbox to reserve a client's IP address. Click the Add Clients button afterwards.

kb17362-003_en.png Step 5:
If you want to manually assign an IP address, enter the client's host name in the Enter Client Name field. You can do this as well in the IP Address and MAC address fields.
Step 6:
Click the Add button.

Step 7:
A list of DHCP clients and their fixed local IP addresses will be displayed at the bottom of the screen. If you want to remove a client from this list, click the Remove button.

On this window, you can do any of the following:
• Click the kb17362-006_en.png button to save your changes.
• Click the kb17362-007_en.png button to cancel your changes.
• To view the most up-to-date information, click the kb17362-008_en.png button.

what is the ip address for it's network/ethernet card?


The external ip address (the one assigned by your isp) can be found at: http://whatismyip.com/

The internal ip address (differentiates the computers on your network) can be found by running the command prompt (start --> run--> cmd or start--> all programs --> accessories --> command prompt) and then typing int eh following command: "ipconfig" (without quotes). It will be the set of numbers in the form 192.168.something.something

Good luck, let me know if you have any questions
