IP Addressing

  User-E70658AE-BDD7-4DD5-AE5EE3B7769D7D2C 21:10 01 Dec 2005

Can anyone point me to a site that explains in simple terms all I would need to know about IP addressing as a home user. I am thinking about setting up a wireless network at home but, am beginning to get frightened off by IP this & MAC that etc.

Thank you in advance

dont get too worried. the disc for the router you buy should have simple to follow instructions and most discs do most of the brain work for you

I was terrified too until I bit the bullet and did it! it's actually very easy. Ideally you need a modem router, and each PC, whether laptop or desktop, needs a wireless "card" in it. The router will come with an installation disk and you just do what it says - mostly the disk will do the set-up for you, so the IP/Mac business is irrelevant.
