Re: Static DHCP

Step 1 Open your web browser and enter the IP address of your D-Link router ( Enter username (admin) and your password (blank by default). Step 2 Click on the Home tab and then click DHCP on the left column. Step 3 Under the Static DHCP section next to DHCP Client, select one of the DHCP clients from the list and click Clone. Step 4 Select Enabled and enter the IP address you would like this client to always obtain. Step 5 Verify that the Name and MAC Address fields have the correct Hostname and MAC address for the client and click Apply. If the Hostname or MAC address is not correct, Release and Renew the IP address on the client and then refresh the DHCP page.

I have a wrt310n router and cannot get internet connectivity when trying to configure a wn2000rpt

is your wn2000rpt connected to the wrt310n or the modem? are you using DSL modem? if so you may need to call in DSL service provider to configure something on their side first. for router configuration, you need to use static IP on your computer in the same subnet of the default IP address of your router. did you configure it yet? if you already get in the configuration page, then try to use DHCP only on one router. if you are using DSL modem then you might need to choose PPPoE as the connection type. Then check the cable and reboot your computer. If your computer is configured as receiving DHCP IP address then make sure there is a DHCP on your router. Anyway, if you tell me the details of your modem and router make, model and connection and the operating system on your computer I can tell you more.

I use Wireless router Model: SMCWBR14-G2. My Office is use Staitc IP for Staff and DHCP for Customer. But DHCP is well work, static is not. I Re Configure this router. It is Ok!. But Gtalk can not use by...

We have used gtalk with static ip number. Sounds more like the port it uses isn't open. It could be that they block the port at your office. When using static ip numbers the gateway must be the number of the router in order for it to get out to the internet.

Cant setup or connect to internet through router

Different ISPs require different configurations. If you have a Linksys router, such as the WRT54G, there are 2 ways on how you can configure it, either by running the Setup CD or by doing manual configuration. This particular router has its own web utility and you can access it by typing its IP addres on your web browser, ex. By default, it doesn’t have any username and its password is admin.

Once you’re inside the setup page, you can configure now the router for DHCP, PPPoE or STATIC IP settings. For DSL customers using a PPPoE account, some modem needs to be configured into BRIDGE MODE first and then the router will be set to PPPoE with the correct username and password (given by ISP). If your a DHCP account, modem doesn’t require any configuration. It will work with its default setting and the router would be set to DHCP. Once done, powercycle your devices to establish internet connection.

You may want to enable the DHCP reservation feature of the router.
What is DHCP Reservation and how do I configure it?

What is DHCP Reservation?
A DHCP reservation is a permanent IP address assignment. It is a specific IP address within a DHCP scope that is permanently reserved for leased use to a specific DHCP client.
You can configure a DHCP reservation in your DHCP server when you need to reserve a permanent IP address assignment. Use reservations for the DHCP enabled devices like print and file servers or other application servers which always have the fixed IP address on network.

Step 1: Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here
Step 2: When the router's web-based setup page appears, click Setup.
Step 3: Click on Basic Setup.
Step 4: Make sure that DHCP Server is Enabled. Then, click the DHCP Reservation button if you want to assign a fixed local IP address to a MAC address.

TRENDnet TEW-432BRP router cannot obtain IP through DHCP

it seems that ur PC & cable modem configuration is ok, now the problem is with ur router WAN interface configuration. the problem would be one out of 2 - first to check whether ur router wan interface is configured properly to obtain IP address from DHCP (if possible, u can give the static ip address with same series as cable modem) second to check with ur ISP.

Static config

DHCP is superior to Static IP in every conceivable way. It is not any slower. However, when you FIRST connect to a dynamic ip router, your computer and the router have to handshake a bit, which takes a few seconds.

After that, they are at the identical speed. DHCP shields you from all sorts of trouble like colliding IP addresses, DNS server, subnet masks and gateways. It is way better and more reliable to go with DHCP.

Static ip is only useful if you *need* static ip, e.g. if you want to host a server on your router and you need the computer's dns server to stay the same.

That said, if you still want to use a static ip, here's how:

Simply disable the DHCP server in the router's settings. Also, go into the router's "status" page and take note of the DNS ADDRESS(S). You will need this later.

(Please note, if you disable the dhcp server, the only way to get back into your router and re-enable it is to use static ip on the computer, or to hard reset the router)

Then, you configure each computer connected to the router to use a static IP as opposed to obtaining it automatically. To do this in windows XP:

Go to start->control panel->network connections
Right click on Local Area Connection and go to Properties
Select "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" from the listbox
Click Properties
In the general tab, tick the radio box "Use the following IP address"
Type in the ip adderss you want (e.g.
Type in as the subnet mask
Leave the default gateway blank
Type the ip address of the DNS server you took note of earlier into the "Preferred DNS" section at the bottom of the form.

Click ok and ok and ok until you're out of all the boxes. Your IP is now static, and cross your fingers. If you did everything correct, it will work. If not, check your settings.

Ip conflict by using media of fiber cable in same network

You can configure the router to hand out DHCP clients in an assigned range. Set a limit on the DHCP clients, then configure the fiber connection as static and outside of the DHCP range. then they cannot conflict.
