This might help you understand better. http://www.iana.org/assignments/ipv4-address-space/ipv4-address-space.xml

And no, I've never had a 192-223 IP address as long as I've had broadband service which is over 15 years now.

192.168.x.x would be a router IP.
24.189.236.72 is your computer unique IP, if your ISP is Optimum Online.

That affects your computer IP.
192.168.x.x number is always the same for every particular router brand and model.
For instance, all Belkins will be 192.168.2.1, all DLinks 192.168.0.1 and so on.

lol your thinking of MAC addresses, IP's are a different ball game

in IPv4 1-126 is used for extremely large corps, and everyone else gets 128-223

There are also private ones like 168 etc

I know its a ridiculous concept to grasp, im gonna need to go read even MORE tutorials until i figure this bleep out

lol your thinking of MAC addresses,


:question: :huh:

mac address`s are totally unique to each any every internet\network capable device there is. It is also independent of the router, which has a mac of it`s own. Unless a mac is cloned. But that is a topic for another day.

There are private IP`s\ranges which more then one device can have the same of as long as it is not an Internet facing device or on the same LAN.

MAC addresses do not follow the same formatting as IP addresses.
