Can someone tell me what "Broadcast IP" is and how I would find what mine would be?

I'm trying to set up the MagicJack Plus device on my router. When I log into my MagicJack.com page, it asks for all the normal information (IP address, Subnet Mask, Gateway, DNS1, and DNS2). But it also asks for "Broadcast IP?" I can't find any help on MagicJack's website as to what this is.

Thanks for any help.

Not sure why they ask for that, as they could easily figure it out as long as they have an IP & Subnet, but if I understand the requirement properly, then the Broadcast Address will be the last address in a subnet. Example:

IP: 192.168.1.150
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Broadcast Address: 192.168.1.255

Assuming you haven't done any sort of custom subnet-ing it will most likely end in ".255", though this won't always be the case.
