To connect to a network you will have to acquire IP addresses both local and public. Your local IP address is a private IP address that is reserved for private network use and is within three reserved IP address range. Your public IP address is what the internet sees given by your ISP and is not in the range reserved for private IP addresses.
In order to locate your local IP address for windows you can use the ipconfig command in cmd and it will be the the number beside IPv4 address.
Next, lets find your public IP address. These are some ways on how to get them.
1. You will be able to see your public IP address by visiting this POST.
2. You can go to whatismyip.com and will be shown like this.
3. You can go to google.com and type "what is my ip", at the top of the results your public IP will be shown.
IPv6 is to be IPv4's successor. With more encreasing devices that needs
to be connected to the internet it will IPv6 to accomodate all the
We most commonly use IPv4 the first version of internet protocol to be internationally deployed for addressing. The news is that IPv4 is running out of addresses so Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) developed a revision IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6).
IPv6 has a larger address space it has a 128-bit addresses allowing for 2^128, or approximately 3.4×10^38
addresses which is more than IPv4 32-bit addresses, allowing for only
4,294,967,296 unique addresses worldwide. IPv6 addresses will look something like this 2607:f0d0:1002:0051:0000:0000:0000:0004 compared to 192.168.1.1 of IPv4
Some major advantages of IPv6 is stateless address auto configuration (SLAAC) which is the automatically configure of hosts when connected to a routed IPv6 network using the Neighbor Discovery Protocol. Multicasting which is a transmission of a packet to multiple destinations in a single send command. Network-layer security which is Internet Protocol Security (IPsec).
IPv6 just launched last 06 june 2012. Since most companies who sell products like routers and internet providers still use IPv4 it will take some time for the transition and some time to getting used to.
So since IPv6 has a large address space it will be providing
internet addresses for a very long time.
Your MAC (Media Access Control) address is a identifier for physical number network adapters installed on your computer, like IEEE 802, and Ethernet assigned in the network interface cards (NICs) by manufacturer for identification.
To find your MAC address for windows just Open cmd.exe > Go to Start > Search programs and files or run > type cmd click enter or > click open cmd.exe at the results > type ipconfig /all. Your MAC address will be the physical address under Ethernet adapter local area connection.
To find your MAC address for you Linux system use su to become root. Type ipconfig -a and eth0 results will have a HWaddr. The number next to HWaddr is your MAC address.
A domain is a identifier for IP addresses. We use domains because
it is much easier to remember domains rather than IP address. If you
choose http://188.8.131.52 compared to http://google.com then
google.com will be the right choice. We barely use the IP address that
is cloaked by the domain but we will never know until they might be
useful. So here is a guide to get the IP address of a domain. We will be
using Windows 7 as the OS for this guide.
Steps: Go to Start > Search programs and files > type cmd click enter or > click open cmd.exe at the results
Just type ping <domain> as the command. Example in the image below and just copy the IP address and your done!
Google has new functions in the left side bar that will let you set your location option and more advanced options. With this search results will be defined to you location. What it does have is an option to change your provinces and cities location but not the country. The new functions are seen in the images below.
If you click the more search terms link there will be a drop down menu where you can choose how the results will be shown by duration and the advanced options.
There are a whole list of cmd commands that you can use to test your Network Connections. These commands are available to Windows 2000, XP, Vista, 7, Server 2003 and Server 2008. This commands will be the tools to help setup or know your IP address, DNS, WINS, Subnet mask, Default gateway and other addresses. You can use this commands in the command promt. The command promt (cmd.exe) is the command line interpreter. To use use these commands go to Start-Run or Start search and enter "cmd" to open a Command window.

This is simply a configuration of your TCP/IP a 32 bit address. For access to the internet to work you must have the right address range that goes with a subnet mask We can classify them to 5 classes A, B, C, D and E. Bits is a unit of information expressed as either a 0 or 1 in binary notation like 0101 is 4 bits. A subnet mask determines where the IP address belongs to.

This is the list of the best free short domains and subdomains available as of 2013. Create your subdomains and use cname, dns, url redirection to your free web host to create your own websites. Some subdomains need to be renewed every year for free and some dont need to be renewed as long as you have them. The disadvantages of using them is they are not yours and they have low SEO. Just try not to violate the rules of the free subdomain company since they are free and the free subdomain company can take away your domain if you violate them. The advantages of using these subdomains is they are free and if you put enough dedication to your free subdomain then they can still rank high in search results.
Cat 6 cable is used for Ethernet connection on local are network (LAN). Straight through cable is used to connect computers, printers to networking devices such as hubs and switches. Crossover cable is used to connect two like devices without the use of an uplink port. There are 8 wires on a Cat 6 cable with a specific color. Both ends of Cat 6 wire will be connected to an RJ-45 pin and both pins will have specific wiring setup. In this guide we will be able to use color coding to make a twisted pair straight through and crossover cable. We will use wiring schemes T-568A and T-568B

URL shorteners are very usefull for micro blogging. They will take away your very long URL's and make them shorter for bloggers who like to share URL's. Short URL's give you more space to type on specially in your posts in Twitter. Some URL shorteners give you the ability to track the number of clicks and give you the control of the appearance of the URL. It all makes the dirty long URL's more clean making it convenient for the eyes. Here is my top 10 URL shorteners
Step 1: Choose what IP addresses you want to use. You should use a unique private IP range that is familiar and easy to use. As an example you can use 192.168.1.100 as Ip range. Use 255.255.255.0 as subnet mask. Use 30 as pool size, pool size determines how many client computers/machines will be automatically assigned with IP addresses.
Step 2: Change your local area connection tcp/ipv4 to 192.168.1.2 and subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Step 3: Open your dhcpd32. In "IP pool starting address" place IP address 192.168.1.100
Step 4: In dhcpd32 Enter the "Size of pool" to 30 and dont write anything on "Boot File" and "WINS/DNS Server" just leave it blank, This is for advanced users. Also dont touch "Domain Name" and "Additional Option".
Step 5: subnet mask must be set to "Mask". This is your subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Step 6: Press "Save".
Step 7: Make sure all your client computers/machines are set to Obtain an IP address automatically.
This tutorial describes how to setup your IP address automatically. You can use this guide if you have a computer that has been using a manually placed IP address. These are the steps:
Step 1: go to start.
Step 2: Click/Open control panel.
Step 3: Find and Click/Open network and sharing center.
Step 4: In the top left of the Network and Sharing Center page Click/Open change adapter setting
Step 5: In this page you can set IP automatically on either Local Area Connection or Wireless Network Connection. In this case we will set Local Are Connection. Right Click Local Area Connection and click/open properties.
Step 6: Choose and Click/Open Internet protocol version 4.
In this page you will see something like this.
Step 7: Change the setting and choose obtain an IP address automatically like this. Click OK.
There you have it you have just set-up your IP address to be automatically obtained from ISP. To know your obtained IP address just look at the ip checker of this site.
