    Question Alternative to 192.168.1.x?

    I was just wondering if there is an alternative to using the 192.168.1.x addy scheme for my inside network. I have three PCs connected to a Linksys 4port Cable/DSL router that connects to an ISA server then to my cable modem. I thought maybe 10.33.1.x but I'm not sure what subnet mask to use for the router. It only gives afew choices with the new firmware upgrade.

    Any suggestions for a scheme anyone??

    Much appreciated

    These are the private address ranges:

    10.0.0.0 10.255.255.255

    169.254.0. 0 169.254.255.255

    172.16.0.0 172.31.255.255

    192.168.0.0 192.168.255.255

    You can determine the netmask by looking at the high end of each range. Everywhere you see a "255" substitute a "0". Everywhere you see any other number substitute a "255". So the netmask for a (subnets not withstanding) 10.x.x.x machine is 255.0.0.0 That means the first octet represents the network and the last 3 represent the host. The more digits reservered for the host (zeros in a netmask), the more machines you can have on the same network.

    Edit: The range you use is completely up to you. All of these addresses are non-routable so none is really better than the other. The only reason to be to picky is the number of machines you have on the network. the 192 range allows 65000 hosts. The 10 range offers 16 million. Unless you are a large corporation it really doesn't matter.
