Hello today will look at networking in windows 10 doing over here will go across platforms, and will also have a look at basically the how to set up a network and will also be looking at different kinds of class A, B and C also look at IPConfig okay to start off with windows 10 okay when you click over here on your network icon again brings up this PC settings window within here you have your ethernet you might have a Wi-Fi okay and you go to the list again.  Basically over your proxy fee to connect to a proxy of the consumer proxy and then you can enter in the IP address and the port at you can click on or off, and then you click save okay settings obviously will depend on your own network, you would need to get this from person was one-sided network or if you separate yourself, you have these details okay for the Wi-Fi okay we could do it over here by basically Klingon manager you get your network fly out which is like windows eight, we haven't got a Wi-Fi setup over here at a using a virtual machine was as quickly minimise essential how you would have a Wi-Fi okay for example vignette.  This is what the same flat come and then you basically choose a Wi-Fi network connected okay for example, you click on this and and basically you connect automatically and click connect and I might pop up with the password requirement and you save the password and connect and within a few seconds.  You literally underneath up on a Wi-Fi signal which looks like the same signal on your mobile phone for Mars by okay back to our windows 10 box okay over here.  Once you are connected, you can then basically manage it, and you might want to shall we say change any settings.  Slide the IP address again your gateway for the DNS server. How do we serve our network. Basically IP addresses with right click on this, open network and sharing centre, and then we click on our connection, click on properties.  If you are not manually type the password a problem with their windows stan windows eight the server.  All are using the IDE version 6 IP version for the vast majority obviously never been using the real world are actually IP version 4 connecting up to the banks the workplace, et cetera, et cetera, you might be using IP version 6 and that's the intention to move towards at St click on properties.  Okay, you can set your own IP address.  There are three kinds of IP addresses which are a B and C, classes okay an IP address starting at one all the way up to 127 okay.  It is an a class and if you look at the subnet mask automatically start at 255 of their okay, you might want to fine-tune it okay and if it was a B class B basically 128 can assist delete that and show you what happens more likely do it must can we get is a B class.  Basically the mask is not the 1st to okay, and if it's a C class.  It started 192 onwards all the way up to the 255 okay, and if we do that day guess what happens next.  How many it lopped off, buried at the first 123 okay if were an RC class okay, we're basically only having the opportunity to have 254 were networks connected to other computers other device could okay now within this let's say our default gateway, which is like the primary route are the next big interconnecting highlight device connecting to okay now over here, it would truly be on the same be that 11254 you might have okay generally towards outside guess the broadcast, you might have it as one itself and then that would be too.  For example okay if you're using your DNS servers okay to go is DNS as a KKK date okay.  We might be using, for example, 192.1 .1 point okay to be any IP address.  Basically that you previously configured configured or your office is set up for you.  Okay, it's a good idea to always have to just in case one stops working okay, and many click okay and and this will be refreshed and you'd be connected to your network.  If everything is correct okay IP version 6 look at the properties for that okay.  The automatic address, or you can type in the address is a long one of their okay subnet prefix length default gateway use the following DNS okay in the advanced section, you have your DNS settings.  Okay, you would have had to have at least one IP address set up before make a your gateway okay version 6.  A lot of things already built-in and preconfigured, and it's a lot more self repairing okay.  This is quickly look at the properties of their alternative Configuration in case you need to set up two of them.  Okay, so you basically have another IP address, subnet mask, default gateway preferred DNS okay, you might have a wins server.  Okay that's slightly older settings that you might have one.  Okay, so that's generally how Wi-Fi and your LAN is set up.  When you set up your IP settings okay if you have to troubleshoot okay.  The couple ways of troubleshooting.  One is to basically right click on that and then click troubleshoot problems okay.  Basically what do you create an automatic system detects problems.  Generally, what it does, it just resets this the settings at default and seasoned it works okay if it doesn't, you might have to manually reconfigure things or you might have to restart your computer, et cetera again is will find the council that okay okay when I will have a look at the IPConfig tool, and how that works okay.  Basically you can open up windows PowerShell or we can open up the command prompt by typing CMD okay we can use that in this case, we have used PowerShell to set PowerShell and open up and opens of this window okay IPConfig what is it do it.  Basically the list all our adapters and IP addresses for them again as the physical MAC address.  Okay, you have their gives you the IPv4 address, it will have IP version 6 habits can give you your IP version 6 ideas well okay, and it lists the DNS server as your gateway okay, now what we might want to do.  In some cases is basically not them all off, so would the current state for/release.  So basically you releasing all the IP addresses of all your connections and now you can see we don't have Internet connection, so that's up and to get it back.  We type in Reno Reno their ego and the methods restored are IP address for the adapter okay okay if we want to see all the IP addresses that we have within our cash okay.  It's basically IPConfig and then display DNS and I will basically shell what the IP addresses for the site that we have if we need to clear that in case basically were having similar problems with getting an older version the site to a totally new IP address, so what we will do is asked flash\and then DNS and is completely clear that if we go back and look at most of our things have been like all of's be white okay.  Now the final thing will have a look at is the ping command okay.  Thing is a useful way of testing to see if we basically connect two devices and will see what's happening.  For example, is paying Google's DNS server perceived works okay were getting a reply back okay, so that's fine connection is working.  Sometimes you have a computer on your network able to connect to and base my opinion, you'll be to find out whether you can actually see it.  Okay, that's the basics for networking.  For now, hope it helped you.
