Suggestions on IP address numbering plan:


If you have no idea on how to define an IP address plan for your network, here are some suggestions. 1. A valid IP address has 4 fields: a.b.c.d, for most of home and company users, its suggested to use 192.168.c.d, where c is an integer between 0 and 254, and d is an integer between 1 and 254. This router is capable to work with up to 253 clients, so you can set d field of IP address of router as 1 or 254 (or any number between 1 and 254), and pick a number between 0 and 254 for field c. 2. In most cases, you should use 255.255.255.0 as subnet mask, which allows up to 253 clients (this also meets routers capability of working with up to 253 clients). 3. For all servers and network devices which will provide services to other people (like Internet service, print service, and file service), they should use static IP address. Give each of them a unique number between 1 and 253, and maintain a list, so everyone can locate those servers easily. 4. For computers which are not dedicated to provide specific service to others, they should use dynamic IP address. If you dont really understand the descriptions listed above, dont worry! We will provide recommended setup values below.
