If I have an address 173.16.2.234 and address 173.16.1.10.

Are they in the same network since the first two series of numbers are the same.

That depends totally on the subnet mask used, with the 2 IP's. If you post the mask/s we can tell you, or you can use a network calculator such as:

For the record if using a typical mask like 255.255.0.0 for both, yes they are on the same network, however other masks may also allow them to be on the same network.

If you use the command prompt and type ipconfig /all it will give you all the relevant data.  You will be able to tell what your subnetmask is etc.   See below the ****

Thank you for the explanation, and how to figure it out myself.  They are on the same network.
