Solved are all ip addresses 192.168.1.1

Specs: Windows 7
I know that my ip adress is 192.168.1.1. Then i looked couple of videos in Youtube about ip adresses and they all came out to be the same address. So why does so many people have the same ip address? would that not be a security risk later on?

Try typing cmd in the Run box then hit Enter key.

Now do the ipconfig thing and it should hold - I'm on XP right now but I think that should work for Win7 too.

This is not a problem.
The IP address of 192.168.1.1 is a private one assigned to your computer by your router. It cannot be accessed directly by anyone outside your own network. The only way to access your computer from the outside world is through your public IP address assigned to you by your ISP and that is unique.

there is a good chance that ip is your routers address/wireless address for your own system. thats a real common series. if you want to check that type that address into your browser and navigate there.( i think this is a linksys router)

if you want to know more about how ip addresses work I would check here.

Note that it might be dynamic, therefore change from time to time or if you power off/on your router.

Please do not post then vanish - let us know the outcome
