You can ony get the MAC from an IP Address if it on the same subnet as your computer.

✔ Best Answer
You can trace an Email for its IP address in the header but depending on how the EMail was sent, may only get you as far back to the originators mail server. You are then dependant on the Mail Server owner to tell you who sent the mail.

Forget about MAC addresses, they never leave the netwrok they originate on. MAC addresses are part of the Ethernet protocol and only exist on Local Area Networks, not the Internet. They are useless for tracing anything except a computer on the same network as you are.

192.168.1.1 stands out as the default IP for most home high speed internet modems. It had been primarily utilized by Linksys however has been seen utilized in various other home network units for instance these created by Netgear and even Westell to mention a few.

Despite the fact that private IP address stands out as the default ip for some broadband internet modems, this does not automatically has to be. A lot of production facilities set the default IP address to 192.168.1.1 so that they can publicize an even more standard precessing surrounding and to make it simpler for first-time buyers to install their own networking systems simply and efficiently.

Could only Linksys along with other modems operate using the 192.168.1.1 IP address?

Basically no, simply because 192.168.1.1 is definitely a non-public IPv4 address, just about any computer system, modem, hub, or another net product may be constructed to make use of this specific ip. Having said that, it's not typically advised because there are many products which default to 192.168.1.1 of which interaction difficulties might come up later on from a number of products employing the same IP address. Also, it is necessary to bear in mind that just one network unit might have only 1 Ip, if you currently have numerous products using 192.168.1.1, just about one ought to be modified to another location.

Modems don't operate in the 192.168.1.x subnet. Routers do.
You can have multiple devices including routers in the 192.168.1.x subnet
You just have to consider dhcp scopes and static ip assignments.
