On Windows systems:

Click Start > Run. Then type: cmd

The 'DOS' box will open, type: ipconfig /all

(Note: there is a SPACE after the word ipconfig) The information displayed will be similar to the below if you have a single address;

C:\Documents and Settings\xxxx>ipconfig /all

Windows IP Configuration

68.87.73.242

Note: Type the word: exit > then hit the Enterkey to close the DOS session.

On Mac or Linux/Unix systems:Launch the Terminal located in /Applications/Utilities/

Type the following command:

ifconfig

You will see most of the same info as the Windows example above. Your IP, subnet mask and gateway will all be clearly marked.

You are able to find your gateway address by typing into the command prompt ipconfig. Your gateway address is also your routers IP address.

You cannot find the gateway address just by looking at the IP address and the subnet mask. You need to interrogate the system by using the appropriate TCP/IP utility.


You can't get either the gateway address or the subnet mask, just by looking at the IP address. The default gateway is often the first or the last usable IP address in a subnet, but this doesn't need be so, and you still need to know the subnet mask for your particular network.You can't get either the gateway address or the subnet mask, just by looking at the IP address.

Subnet mask is a mask used to determine what subnet an IP address belongs to. Default gateway is the gateway in a network that a computer will use to access another network if a gateway is not specified for use.


You can't find the gateway or any other address in a subnet mask; the subnet mask is used to separate the parts of an address - the network id part and the host id part. Look at other settings for the gateway, such as ipconfig or ifconfig


Use the 'ifconfig' command on your adaptor, or just 'ifconfig -a'


go toyour home computer then go to start. run .then type cmd .then type in on the blackish screen ipconfig and press enter and it will tell you your ip address subnet mask and gateway


What is the default subnet mask for an IP address of 198.133.219.4?


Find command prompt Type CD C:\ Then type ipconfig


Get Subnet Mask, IP Address, Gateway etc.For windows users go to START button in bottom left corner then to RUN then type COMMAND in the box - the mini DOS prompt will open in a separate window. Then type ipconfig/all and all the information you desire will be listed - ip address, default gateway, subnet mask etc.......


The gateway address can only be assigned after the subnet mask is declared. You really can't define both from just an IP address of a single node. The network may or may not be subnetted.


Yes. You need to have an IP (either static or dynamic) You must have a subnet mask that corresponds to the IP address; and a gateway IP address that is on the same subnet.


It is called "IP address". A typical example, using private addresses, is:IP address: 10.0.0.5Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0Default gateway: 10.0.0.1IP address will be different for different computers, but typically all will start with the same 3 bytes, in the example, "10.0.0". Subnet mask and default gateway will be the same for several computers in the same network.It is called "IP address".

The correct term is subnet mask instead of subnet mass. A subnet mask separates an IP address into the host address and the network address. It is a 32-bit number that can mask an IP address.


default subnet mask for class a ip address


subnet mask defines how many network bits our network address is using. In default condition subnet mask of the given ip address is 255.0.0.0 subnet mask may change if we do subnetting.


Subnet Mask provides Network & Class Identificationfor an IP Address.


For a class A address the default subnet mask is 255.0.0.0



The default subnet mask is 255.255.0.0



The network address of an IPv4 address of 192.168.7.5 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 would be 192.168.7.0. Remember that the subnet mask determines the network portion of the IP Address.


To determine the network or subnet address of an IP address


Yes, DHCP usually assigns a number of settings for an adaptor, which may include: IP Address Subnet Mask Default gateway WINS servers DNS servers and other settings.


You may use almost any possible subnet mask for this IP address.


it is a class c address..so default subnet mask is 255.255.255.0 it is a private address...
