Thank you Cherylfoster
I can understand what a network is but as i
have a subnetmask of 255.255.255.255 this is known as a broadcast address.
one of two that cannot be used on a network,I guess my real question is did the store i purchased
the computer from sell me a bad computer.
Or can i change this address manualy?
thanks again
