Yes. The IP for the cable MODEM is usually obtained automatically from the MODEM/ISP. If you are using Windows ICS, SyGate… the IP for the local network is usually installed by the connection sharing software, is usually static and is usually 192.168.0.1 with a subnet mask = 255.255.255.0. Clients usually obtain their IPs automatically from the sharing software’s built-in DHCP server, but can be setup for static IPs if the DHCP server is disables or it address scope is configured not to interfere with the static IPS. Start, Run, enter winipcfg, and select the adapter to see the IPs. Larry
