Hi there,
if your computer has an ip address starting from 169.xxx.xxx.xxx then that is an invalid ip address... refer to computer vendor for another nic card.

Your ip address can be found by accessing the command prompt..
eg in XP
Start> Run> type in the run box "cmd" in the black dos window type in "ipconfig" press enter.

this will give out ip address, subnet mask and the defualt gateway.

Hi, the manual says that i have to enter dslmodem or http://192.168.0.1 but it doesn't work, please help me!!!


Try plugging you computer into the router via a network cable.
It should pick up an IP address.
Open up a cmd window from the run command in the start menu.
Type: ipconfig /all (Press enter)
You should see your ip address which has been assigned to you. Look for the default gateway address.
Enter the gateway address into the browser.
HTTP://{gateway IP address}
Good luck.
Hope this helps

How to set up a static IP address in Windows Vista


Static IP addresses are often used for computers that host specific services, or for computers on small, manually managed networks. To set up a static IPv4 address on a Windows Vista computer, first find an IP address that is not currently in use and is outside the DHCP assignable range (if applicable). Then follow either of the procedures below.

From the taskbar:

1. Right click on the network connection icon in the system notification tray.
2. Select Network and Sharing Center.
3. Under Tasks, select Manage network connections.
4. Right click on the network connection that you want to set up the IP address for (Local Area Connection, Wireless Network Connection, etc.)
5. Select Properties.
6. If the User Account Control window pops up, select Continue.
7. Click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4).
8. In the Properties window, click the circle next to Use the following IP address.
9. Enter the IP address that you want to assign to the computer.
10. Enter the subnet mask and default gateway. (For small or home networks, these will typically be 255.255.255.0 and 192.168.1.1, respectively.)
11. Enter the IP address of the DNS server next to Preferred DNS server.
12. If you have an alternate DNS server, enter that IP address as well.
13. Click OK to save the changes.

From the Start menu:

1. Click the Vista orb.
2. Right click on Network.
3. Follow the procedure above from step #3.

Reserving an IP address under DHCP is different from setting up a static IP address. To reserve an IP address, log into your router's configuration utility and look for a heading such as DHCP or IP Address Distribution. You will probably need either the computer's Windows name or its MAC address to reserve an IP address for it.

How do i find information about my address and port?


im guessing here you mean your ip addess and open ports on your computer right ??

ok firstly your computer uses 3 ip address
  1. loop back ,, 127.0.0.1 (slandered) for all computers , this is used for internal progressing and phrasing.
  2. a local ip address ,,This ip vaires what it is basically is the ip address given to your computer by your router ,, its the address that the router recgonises as your computer , so different computers connected to the same router have differect local address.. it usually starts with 192.168.XXX.XXX or 10.0.X.X
  3. Foreign / Internet Ip address, no matter what type of router this address varies for each router!!!!!. lets say you have 7 computer on the same router , each will have the same foreign address but different local address's.
PORTS !!!
will ports are used for different things for example web surfing is port 80, ftp is 21, different software uses cretin ports to allow computers to different machines over the internet or other network to interface with them directly..

Hope i explained all that simply,, well here is how you get the info u need..in all Operating systems the process is a bit different here i will outline 2 ways each,, for XP and for win vista / win 7.. ok lets get started..

XP..

to determine local ip address,,
  • click start , control panel
  • network / internet connections / network connections
  • double click on local area connection or what ever name u see..
  • click support,, there you go see your ip.. click details for more info
alternate method
  • double click on the network connection icon to the buttom right of your screen.. follow last step above

  • click start then run
  • type cmd and hit enter
  • type ipconfig /all and hit enter
that will list all the info about your connection for you..

ok ports in win XP

click start then run,, type cmd and hit enter
type netstat - n

that will list all ports / ip address that they are connection too..
the ports that you see are the open ports.. there is an alternat method to see it in the windows firewall setting but i did not list it since its most incomplete,, background processes dont show up there ,, like a virus..

skip to foreign address !!! BELOW

ok vista...or windows 7

start control panel
network
manage network connection / view or edit network connections
double click on local area network click support if necessary ,, you will see your ip address there (LOCAL)

  • OR ,, click start, in the run box type cmd and hit enter
  • type ipconfig /all hit enter
  • that will list your local address among other things..
PORTS ,, VISTA / WIN 7
click start
in the run box type cmd and hit enter
type netstat -n and hit enter,,
this will list all open ports and the ip address that they are connected to..


FOREIGN ADDRESS
this is easy.. go to http://www.whatismyip.com the address that shows up is your foreign address..

well I hope thats a Fixya, or at least a very helpful after all that typing it would be sad if i didnt answer your question or was wrong abou what you wanted to know.. good luck and let me know if you need any more help..

Where i can find my printer's ip address


Your Printer's IP Address depends on the IP Address of your computer if it's connected to your computer via USB cable. So to check on the IP Address of your computer.

Windows XP
- click start
- click run
- type cmd
- type ipconfig on the black screen and press enter
- look for the ip address, if you see it the numbers beside it is the ip address

Windows Vista
- click pearl button (start)
- click start search box
- type cmd
- right click the black icon up the top of the window
- click on run as administrator
- click on continue
- type ipconfig on the black screen and press enter
- look for the ip address, if you see it, the numbers beside it is the ip address

If you are using CAT5 on the printer, the IP Address is on the setup menu of the printer. If you have the manual of the printer, it'll help you find it or you could provide us the Brand and model of your printer so we could look it out for you.

Unable to access router address on browser(Explorer)to set it up. 192.168.1.1 takes me to the web pages where other people are having the same problem.


Hi g_c1,

If you haven't changed the default IP, then your trying the wrong IP #. The default IP for that Router is 192.168.200.254. See if that helps.

Also, you can always go to the Start and Click on Run, and at the line enter cmd. When you get to dos type in ipconfig /all this will give you a list of all IP assigned to that computer. The one that your looking for is called the Gateway. That line has your IP address of the router.

Good Luck

Entered the wrong ip address


Different manufacturers have differing setup so without the details of the make and model of the router in question it a little hard to help.
Most routers will have the ability for you to reset it to factory default by a button or such on the unit itself - refer to the install documentation that you got with the modem - if you dont have it you may need to aska friend to borrow their PC and access the manufactures support pages for help.

Wrong ip address


Are you trying to get an IP for your computer, or for your modem? Assuming your using a high-speed connection, possibly a router?
