IP address, which stands for Internet Protocol Address is essentially like an address provided to specify the local network, router or device used to access the internet. In actuality, it is a set of rules and protocols that govern the mode and way in which any sets of data are transmitted through the web. Internet is essentially a wide network of interconnected devices all across the planet, and a mode of specifying the source of information and identifying and differentiating all the systems irrespective of their local network is an essential component. This is where IP address comes into play. For example, the IP Address 192.168.3.1 is an extremely common IP for most popular router default admin pages. Most commonly used routers assign a specific IP address for any home or office based Local Area Network (LAN). A range of IP addresses has already been reserved for use in similar domains. They are:
192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255
172.16.0.0 – 172.31.255.255
10.0.0.0 – 10.255.255.255
Another noteworthy point is that in any IP address, for example lets take 192.168.3.1, the first three sets of digits, that is, 192.168.1 represents the local network domain provided by the ISP. The last digit, namely 1 represents the device connected to that internet. Any subsequent devices connected to the same network will have its last digit automatically changed by Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) while the first three sets of digits will remain the same, signifying that they are present in the same local area network (LAN).
If you have been browsing the internet for some time, you are bound to come across something like 192.158.100. This is what we call an IP address, and the digits before or after the dots can range anywhere from 0 to 255. In other words, an IP address can range anywhere between 0.0.0.0 and 255.255.255.255.
It should be kept in mind that you cannot just randomly assign any sets of digits and claim it to be the IP Address to your favourite webpage. Each and every IP Address is calculated pertaining to a specific set of complex rules by the Internet Assigned Numbers Community (IANA). IANA is a US-based non-profit organisation aiming to provide a safer, more secure online experience. Even if you want to create your own new domain right now, you would have to go through their set of rules, submitting them with a specified fees to obtain an IP address, this in turn ensures that each and every domain on the net is safe, secure and registered, preventing any illegal or marginalised activity from going unnoticed.
You can think of an IP Address as the common language and mode of communication between two or any greater number of systems, enabling exchange of data of any kind, from any location. It generally follows the following basic steps:
The default home page domain, like in this case 192.168.3.1 is provided by default from the brands producing the router. It should also be noted that an IP Address is not permanent or finalised in nature and can easily be changed under any of the following circumstances:
So now, you might want to look up your own IP address. This is not a daunting task and might require only a few moments of your time.
The easiest way to find out the IP Address of your local device is to directly go to google and search something along the lines of 'What is my IP Address?' and you will find the information you are looking for within the first few search options. There are even some websites that can track and show you your location through your own IP address. Usually, only the basic general information is provided like the name of the city or the general location and not the exact actual location. In order to get the actual accurate physical location of the IP address provided precisely, generally requires a search warrant to be submitted to the Internet Service Provider and approved duly to be allowed access. It should be kept in mind that for this method to work, the VPN servers, if present, should be logged off and firewall disabled or it won't function properly. This is possible because when your device is granted access to these sites, they can automatically get hold of your IP address.
If you still want to take a different approach of finding out your IP Address, different operating systems have different ways available to the same. For example:
It should be noted that generally the digits before the first three dots in a local network IP address represent the LAN and the last digit(s) is assigned to differentiate different systems in the same LAN. This is why you will notice that all the devices connected to the same Wi-Fi have the first three sets of digits same with the last digits being different.
Now that you finally know about the basics of IP address and how it works, you can now begin to set your very own router-based Wi-Fi connection. Here are some essential steps you need to keep in mind in order to do that:
In order to hide your personal information from prying eyes and to protect yourself from cyber crimes like hacking, piracy, etc. it is essential to know how to protect and hide your IP address as or when it is required. The primary methods to do this are:
