21 I think I probably had one of those years ago, before switching to
22 cable. If your PC uses DHCP, then you should be able to do "ip a" and
23 find the subnet (perhaps 192.168.1) You might then try 254 as the last
24 octet. Using traceroute might also show you the address. If you
25 want/need to dig out the big guns, wireshark should also provide some
26 useful info.
