Displays the device's IP address. The Internet is a collection of networks with users that
communicate with each other. Each communication carries the address of the source and
destination networks and the particular machine within the network associated with the user
or host computer at each end. This address is called the IP address. Each node on the IP
network must be assigned a unique IP address that is made up of a network identifier and
a host identifier. The IP address as a dotted-decimal notation with the decimal value of each
octet separated by a period, for example, 192.168.7.27.
Displays the device's subnet address. Most TCP/IP networks use subnets to manage
routed IP addresses. All IP addresses have a network part that specifies a physical
network, and a host part that specifies a host on that physical network. The subnet mask
allows a network administrator to use some of the bits typically used to specify the host, to
instead specify physical sub-networks within an organization. This helps organize and
simplify routing between physical networks.
