IP address of the Ethernet adapter with router on USB
Posted on 2004-10-03
I have recently installed a DSL rounter on the USB port. The router automatically created a new "Local Area Connection" and it gave the IP address 10.0.0.1 to this connection. Before installing the router, my Ethernet card had the static IP 192.168.0.1, and it is still so. When I ping MyPCName, I get pinging MyPCName [10.0.0.1].
My questions is, should I modify the Ethernet card IP to 10.0.0.1? or is it OK to keep it as was before (192.168.0.1)? And will the old IP really work? i.e. the PC will really have 2 IP addresses?
And is it recommended to have only one IP address?
