Please direct this to the proper forum.
We have a laptop connected to a router, then to the modem on my system.
I know the IP address to my computer.
Will the IP address to the laptop have its own? I'm trying to keep track of each system's unique information.
Thank you

the router will give each computer it's own IP address, but it is only good inside your network. These are dynamic and they will most likely change in the future, when their lease expires.

I don't understand what you mean by lease?
What is leased?
Are you saying that I now have a network with the addition of a laptop?
I don't recall setting up anything special for a network.
Maybe there is a special forum here that I can read up on this?

Thank you

just installing the router makes it a network. doesn't matter how many computers you have on it. Each IP has a time-limit before it is allowed to be used by another computer, this is the lease. The router handles this function automatically.

And yes, there is a networking forum on BP, this would be better there, maybe PM a mod to have it moved?

Here is a simplistic but nice overview of "home networking" http://computer.howstuffworks.com/home-network.htm

That might get you started to understanding how a router works within your "home network"
