There are two different types of IP addresses on the computer, internal and external. Internal IP addresses are distributed by DHCP servers or Adsl Modem with DHCP feature so that computers and printers can communicate and communicate with each other in the same network.
To give the simplest and most memorable examples of these IP addresses , the IP addresses we use to enter the modem interface, such as 192.168.1.1, are internal IP addresses.
External IP addresses are the IP addresses given to you by your internet provider, namely TurkTelekom, Turksat, to connect to the internet. These ip addresses can be fixed (static ip) as well as dynamic ie variable ip addresses.
Fixed ip addresses are generally web site ip addresses, ip addresses used for security cameras are generally fixed ip addresses that do not change. These IP addresses are rented from the internet provider company for a certain monthly fee.
Variable IP addresses, that is, dynamic IP addresses, are given to normal users. This has a period of 6 days, after which it changes on its own or when you turn the Adsl Modem on and off, a different ip address is automatically assigned as a new ip address.
Why does the ip address change, usually users who play games on the internet can change it to enter with a new ip address if they are banned from the ip address when they get banned in the game. But for Windows 10, we can usually change the internal ip address to configure within the network, or we can manually change the ip address as a fixed ip address.
