Hey all,

I was just wondering, when the article talks about changing the ip address:

"Second, change the name and IP address of your router. Your router does not have to have an internal address of or Change that to or Anything that will make an automated attack fail."

How do you change this, moreover, what are you allowed to change the octet to? I'm not too familiar with I.P. addresses. If there is any other info anyone can provide it would be most appriciated.

Thanks a bunch,

http://en.wikipedia....Private_network read that article to see what the approved private subnets are (basically 10.xxx.xxx.xxx, 172.16.xxx.xxx to 172.31.xxx.xxx, and 192.168.xxx.xxx)

to change the IP on your router you log in to your router's interface and change the LAN ip of the router (usually the WAN ip comes from your modem and it's often in the range though sometimes it's in a range of public ip addresses depending on your ISP) changing the WAN ip address is usually not required...and can cause issues on some setups (though as long as you stay in the same range with the same subnet mask as the original you're usually ok changing the WAN ip)
