Logical Addressing…

Hi Frndz,
In a system, there are two types of addresses: logical address and physical address.
Another name for logical address is IP address and it is set by your Internet service provider (ISP) or your router.
If you have a router then you have a LAN, which sets a logical address for your computer. Your router will have an logical address set by your ISP.
The physical address is also called the MAC address and it is generated by the manufacturer (but only to a given extent).

To change the IP address (logical address) follows the steps mentioned below:-

1. Press the Windows Key and R

2. Type command and press Enter. This loads your DOS prompt

3. Type ipconfig /release then press Enter. This disables your internet connection

4. Go to your desktop, and right-click on something called Network Place or My Network Places (If you’re using Windows Vista or 7, look for the Network and Sharing Center through Control Panel)

5. Click Properties. You should now see something called Local Area Connection or something similar

6. Right-click on your connection (titled Local Area Connection if you’re using an ethernet cable or Wireless Network Connection if you’re on WiFi) and click Properties

7. Under the General tab, double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)

8. A new window appears. On its own General tab, click the box beside Use the following IP address

9. Type in ones until you fill the box up (it should read

10. Press Tab. You’ll notice the Subnet Mask section automatically fill sup with numbers

11. Click OK

12. Click OK to bring you back to the “Local Area Connection” screen

13. Right-click Local Area Connection and Click on Properties again

14. Again, under the General tab, double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)

15. Select Obtain an IP address automatically

16. Click OK

17. Click OK

18. Go back to your DOS prompt, type “ipconfig /renew” and press Enter. This restores your internet connection.

By now, the network should have assigned a new IP address to your computer automatically.

Have a Good Day…
