    hi all,

    i have 2 computers connected to a dsl connection
    first from the modem to hub and to the pc's

    why do both computers have the same ip address?????

    when i go to www.whatismyip.com on each computer
    they have the SAME IP
    why is that? cause i'm having trouble serving an ftp and wasn't sure if
    this might be some of the problem

  2. Because it is showing you the ip address of your router, not of the
    individual machines.

    if i set up a ftp server which ip should someone try to connect to?

  4. Your external ip address, so the one that your seeing from that website, if
    you are running a DSL router you will have to make sure you have port 20 and
    port 21 forwarded to the machine that your running your ftp server on.

    Tell us about your network
    Do you have a firewall or Linksys?
    If so you need to go a Command/DOS window and
    type "IPCONFIG" or "WINIPCFG" and get your NAT'ed ip and
    port forward to your FTP server from the firewall
    They would connect to your public ip (that is the ip you
    see at whatismyip.com)

    ok, line in to dsl modem then to a cheap 4 port net gear hub

    ok, the ip I see is my public ip of my dsl modem/router
    then i am assigned PRIVATE ip's within my network right? my moms is and my computer is
    then my gateway is

    but why is it to log into my modem i use my moms address in
    internet explorer?

    now, to use remote desktop, ftp i must have the ports forwarded to the
    private ip's of the computer i would wish to use these programs right?

    sorry about my wording, it's tough for a newbie lol
    but the hub is dumb

    Hello, The reason you get the same address on both pc's
    is because you have a hub. A hub is a dummy device, you
    will need to get a router or a switch to correct your
