i still dont get why you are or where you are getting the 42 from This sounds like a Douglas Adams quip. :)

The .42 was just a valid IP in the range determined by your subnet mask. As stated above by [jedi] 29 bits are network and 3 are host. Your host range is .41 through .46 and .42 is a valid host IP. EG

11000000.10101000.00000001.00101010 192.168.1.42
11111111.11111111.11111111.11111000 255.255.255.248 or 29+3
11000000.10101000.00000001.00101000 192.168.1.40 (after AND op)

Make more sense?
