I just got my new D Link router going, and I want to use anything other than the default IP address. Can I pretty much use any address (just two computers - wired)? I used to be able to do subnetting in my head, but alas, time moves on. What are the constraints and I am wildly open to suggestions.
Well, it depends on what network class you want to be in. A B or C. All of them are relatively secure, but I would change your addy to something like 192.168.5.1. And if you have wireless, just place a WEP key on it, so that people cant connect into it without the password.
