Question: Can A Device Have Multiple IP Addresses?

Can I have 2 networks on the same router?

Yes, if you have a wireless router that has a Guest network.

But if your intent is to establish two wifi networks to the SAME network (for example, if you wanted to provide both a 2.4GHz and 5GHz AP), a guest network is not the answer..

Do IP addresses change?

Yes, your IP Address will change Even if you keep the same ISP, because you are moving to a new location, and different cables and connection method may be used, it is a very rare instance to keep the same IP Address.

Can a device have two IP addresses?

Yes a computer may have two or more IP address. Actually computer doesn’t have any IP address, a NIC (Network Interface Card) have IP and a computer system have more than one NIC cards hence your system may have more than two IP address each for NIC.

How many IP addresses can a device have?

1.1. Each number can, technically, range from zero to 255. Routers differ from other computing devices in that they have (at least) two IP address: a public one and a private one. The public side of a router is visible on the Internet.

Why do I have two different IP addresses?

It’s because your Ethernet (cable) network card and your WiFi network card is just that, two different network interfaces. That means that to function, each of them have to have an IP address, given by your router. It’s normal behaviour.

Why does my device have multiple IP addresses?

Each network connection type will have a separate IP address. The mobile data connection will have an IP address assigned by the carrier. Each wifi connection will give the device a new IP address internal to that wifi system.

Why does my WiFi have 3 IP addresses?

Having 3 IP addresses means that your system can be communicated with using three different IP addresses, and most likely means you have WiFi turned on and an Ethernet cable plugged in. One will be the loop back address (127.0. 0.1) and that is only useful on the system itself.

Can router have multiple IP addresses?

Yes, each interface on a router will typically have one IP address. You can, of course, play games with VLANs and the like, and put an IP address on one of many logical interfaces, effectively putting many IP addresses on an interface.

How many IP addresses should you have?

It may have taken a little bit longer than 10 years, but the prediction was not far off. Many people walk around today with three or more IP addresses on their person. Your laptop computer, smartphone, tablet and eReader all have IP addresses if they connect to the Internet, so that’s four addresses right there.

Is IP address unique for every device?

All computers and other devices connected to a network, such as smartphones, tablets, and fax machines, have a unique IP address. No two computers on the network may have the same IP address. Without the IP address, computers and mobile devices would not be able to communicate with each other.

Can a cell phone IP address be traced?

So, while it is possible someone can geo-locate you by knowing your phone’s IP address (which changes every time you leave your house and come back, as well as every time your device finds a new network to connect to), it is incredibly unlikely due to the nature of cellular data networks and wi-fi routers.
