    192.168.1.10 would probably be a safe bet for the IP address. But just to be sure, you could trying to ping that address right now and be sure that you get no replies. That generally means the address is available for use.

    Use the same subnet mask, default gateway, and DNS server(s) that your PC is using now (find out by running ipconfig.exe from a command prompt).

      Your ISP normally assigns an IP for your broadband connection, Static or Dynamic.

      If you got your ADSL modem from your ISP (or even from a computer shop) DHCP is usually enabled so typing 192.168.1.1 into your browser will usually open a logon screen so you can enter username and password to access the modem's web interface. However, some ISP will lock you out of the modem as they may have already configured it with their customised settings.
      1 1 was a racehorse.
      2 2 was 1 2.
      1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
      2 2 1 1 2
