Why does my ip address have a dash at the end of it? It was assigned to me by AT&T Uverse.

106.206.186.224-8

  • While I can understand why people are downvoting this, it's entirely within the realm of possibility that a provider would take a standard address and morph it into a nonstandard entity for the purpose of account or configuration management. If you look at your AT&T phone bill, your account number is probably a morphed version of your phone number. – Gerald Combs May 25 '12 at 22:21

no, they dont. possibly it's a way of indicating address range 224 to 228 [although not very professional - i would rather expect CIDR notation].

    I don't think you can represent the IP range .224 through .228 using CIDR. /29, /30 and /31 do not match .224 though .228 . – Stefan Lasiewski May 25 '12 at 22:30
  • @StefanLasiewski that's valid point; still ranges - especially expressed in ambiguous way are are not very precise way of communicating. – pQd May 26 '12 at 4:25

You have been assigned addresses 224 through 228 - 224,225,226,227, and 228.
