peer to perr network & ip addresses RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a 1Pv4 peer-to-peer windowsxp network. Below is an example of each
    pc's ip address setup. The gateway is for all 3 pcs.
    My problem is that the network printer has an ip address of
    If I change each pc to an address of 192.168.18.xxx, they can get to
    printer, but the internet connectivity won't work.
    Does the printer have to changed to a 192.168.1.xxx address for the pcs to
    be able to reach the printer and receive internet connectivity?
    Basically, in such a setup, does the 3rd octet of each ip address have to be
    the same within a p-to-p network?
