More about 192.168.1.42
An IP address is a 32-bit binary number, which consists of two parts: network ID and host ID. It is used to identify a computer in a network in a unique way. The network ID is used to identify the segment in which the computer is located. The host ID is used to identify the location of the computer in the segment.
IP addresses are usually represented by four sets of three decimal digits separated by dots, such as 192.168.1.42. If you have multiple devices connected to the router network, the first three sets of numbers are the same for all devices, indicating that they are on the same network, and the fourth set will be different. The router DHCP protocol will automatically assign a unique IP address to each device.
