Can anyone explain to me why my output ip is:

I configured my addresses as follows:

Arduino :

My local network:



Then when I print it, it shows

Arduino code:

#include <SPI.h>
#include <Ethernet.h>

// network configuration. dns server, gateway and subnet are optional.

// the media access control (ethernet hardware) address for the shield:
byte mac[] = { 0xDE, 0xAD, 0xBE, 0xEF, 0xFE, 0xED };  

// the dns server ip
IPAddress dnServer(192, 168, 1, 1);
// the router's gateway address:
IPAddress gateway(192, 168, 1, 1);
// the subnet:
IPAddress subnet(255, 255, 255, 0);

//the IP address is dependent on your network
IPAddress ip(192, 168, 1, 8);

void setup() {

  // initialize the ethernet device
  Ethernet.begin(mac, ip, dnServer, gateway, subnet);
  //print out the IP address
  Serial.print("IP = ");

void loop() {

My output is:

IP =

Please help, thank you.
