    Hello,
    I am still learning the basics of linux, so I need help with my latest quest.

    I was given a used managed switch. But, the default network is 10.90.90.90
    I figured out where I can change it to the local network IP 0f 192.168.0.x

    The problem that I am having is on the same screen where it asks me to change the IP, it also asks me for:
    subnet mask
    gateway

    I am not well versed enough to know what to put in these spaces.

    Might some one be able to let em know what I should enter for the subnet mask and gateway?

    Thanks

    Joseph

    Try this for subnets: http://www.subnet-calculator.com/
    Also I believe Wikipedia explains all you need to know about TCP/IP subnet.
    The gateway is default router in that subnetwork. Spy it from a working host on that subnetwork or ask you network admin.
