IANA is the organization responsible for global IP assignments. They assign "blocks" of IP addresses to Regional Internet Registries which are geographically based organizations responsible for allocation within their geographic areas -- there are 5 RIR's: AfriNIC (Africa) LACNIC (Latin America & Caribbean) APNIC (Asia Pacific) ARIN (United States, ...

(Here I'm talking about the customer edge router. The one which is on your LAN. In the ISP network, the router is usually/probably configured manually). If you have a PPP-based connection (PPPoE, PPPoA, PPPoEoA), your router will receive its IP addresses from the ISP addresses: using IPCP for IPv4; using IPCPv6 and SLAAC or DHCPv6 for IPv6. If you have ...

The ISP also has a DHCP server, just like your router. The DHCP server may have your old address cached like previous answers posted, and may give you a new address if not. DHCP sometimes runs directly over your uplink, and sometimes it is terminated at the network equipment that runs the uplinks. In bridged mode, for example, DHCP is used to assign the ...

Definitely not, without ARP you'll have no IP link so it's important to have working - and the fact that it works on other equipment means you're getting ARP replies from them in some cases (so it can't be disabled). More likely is either a hardware or configuration problem on the new router that's preventing it from getting a working layer 2 connection to ...

You can accomplish this with routing. The network is so small, you might even just do static routing, but any supported routing protocols like RIP, EIGRP, OSPF, etc. would do the trick. The main points to hit on: The connection between routers should be its own subnet, such as 192.168.3.0/24, and each router's interface must have an address in the ...

Enterprise-level products, like Cisco's, are designed and built for a professional market; as such, their customers are expected to know and undertand what they are doing and how to properly manage them. There are lots and lots of "simpler" products out there, but they are nowhere near the levels of performance, reliability and flexibility you can expect ...
