edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for IP address:
  • Add a section about the different types of notation (dotted decimal notation, hexadecimal, binary, etc.)
  • Some history
  • How many IP addresses are static vs. dynamic?
  • A section on IP address assignation, which mentions IANA and a short description of the hierarchy. It could probably include the information from "International IP ranges" on the Talk page.
  • Add authoritative regular expressions for IPv4 and IPv6 addresses

This line:

An Internet Protocol address (IP address) is a numerical label assigned to each device (e.g., computer, printer) participating in a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication

Is based on the assumption that a "device" is a "computer" and it only has one NIC ( Network Interface Controller ). This is an error.

For many servers several NIC are used to add resources.

This line should read:

An Internet Protocol address (IP address) is a numerical label assigned to each NIC ......

Also the idea of Local Area Networks vs. Internet IP values should be included early in the page.

For Example:

The Internet IP address may be a NAT to many local area IP values if a NAT is used.

I guess it is even worse than that because even a NIC can have multiple IP addresses. The sentence in question is in the lead and I don't think it is a good idea to detail all the wrinkles in the lead. I would propose softening the language in the lead and adding a new section to the article to comprehensively describe the types of entities which have IP addresses. ~KvnG 17:01, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: this page is only for discussing changes to the article IP address, so I suspect you are in the wrong place.
If you want to suggest a change, please request this on the talk page of the relevant article (Possibly Andrew Rebori?) in the form "Please replace XXX with YYY" or "Please add ZZZ between PPP and QQQ".
Please also cite reliable sources to back up your request, without which no information should be added to, or changed in, any article. - Arjayay (talk) 17:10, 2 November 2014 (UTC)
