Static IP's within the home network, or static IP's from the service provider's perspective.
My internal IP's haven't changed in over a year. I only have 4 devices on my network and have set the range to only allow 4 devices. How will this affect someone trying to hack my network externally? Will only 4 IP addresses from my router still allow an external hacker to spoof an IP address and compromise my system? It seems like a confusing question on my part and I'm not really sure how to word it but basically I was informed to have as few IP addresses issued from my router as possible
in order to reduced the threat base
I hope that make sense. I'm not sure if its correct either.
