IP Addressing

I need to set up a routable ip address scheme to use with a linksys router. I have a corp. VPN and cannot use a 198.162.1.1 address scheme. What others can I use?

Your ISP provides one or more routable ip addresses (depending on what you have obtained and paid for); your Linksys router is a NAT (Network address translation).

The LinkSys will take one routable ip address (one external routeable ip address) and translate it to be used by ANY internal ip address you set for the internal side of the LAN.

In other words, your internal LAN can be any ip address/subnet mask that you set up. The LinkSys can be used as a DHCP server and all computers may obtain an internal ip address from it; or you may turn off DHCP services on the LinkSys.

The LinkSys also holds one external ip address for the WAN side. Your internal computers will need to have the ip address that you setup for your LinkSys, as the gateway for Internet/e-mail access.
