    Ip address dynamic

    Dynamic and Static addressing are the two main methods used for IP address assignments. Dynamic IP addresses are automatically obtained and nothing needs to be done on the user end. However, Static IP address information must be configured manually. If you do not have a router, you need to input your static IP information directly into your Apple Macintosh.

    Click "Apple > System Preferences." Click the "Network" icon. Click the "TCP/IP" tab. Choose "Manually" in the Configure drop-down menu. Click in "Show" and choose your Ethernet device. This is usually called Built-in Ethernet. Enter your IP address into the IP Address field. Enter the Subnet Mask into the Subnet Mask field. If your service provider did not provide you with one, use the default of "". Enter the Gateway address into the Router field. Enter the DNS Server into the DNS Servers field. Two should have been provided to you. Push the "Apply Now" button to confirm changes.

    First see if you are able to connect to the internet wired to the router,
    -If you are able to connect using the wire connection then I suggest to turn off the wireless security settings for the time being and see what happens.

    See if you are able to ping your router.
    -Make sure that the TCP/IP settings are set to DHCP and make sure that it is getting an IP address and Default Gateway.

    If you are able to ping the router then see if you are able to ping google by name and by IP. (An IP address for google,com is

    If you are able to ping both then you should be able to access the internet.

    If you are able to ping only the google's IP address then you have a DNS issue.
    -See if you can set your DNS address manualy to and Ref:

    If you are able to ping only google by name then see if you are able to access google by typing in the replied IP address in the address bar of your web browser on a computer that is working fine.
    -If you are not able to access google with the address then you may have something stooping you on your machine. Check for firewalls and antivirus to see if they have any network configurations.

    I'm using two Macintosh Computers. I followed the quick setup wizard, all the right lights are lit. I've reset my broadband modem, I've reset the Dynex Router. Yet I can't make contact...

    Richard have you tried setting up static ip addresses on the MACs
    If you have other p.c's on network with auto ip assignment then alter the DHCP server lease to to
    then make ip address static subnet mask default gateway and on the other mac
    make ip address static subnet mask default gateway

    Ip address

    No. Formatting your PC will not change your IP Address if it is set to automatically obtain it. Your router's DHCP server will allocate the same IP Address your computer is using.

    I have to repair my connection to get internet

    Are you running a virus scanner or internet security software?

    Is it active and has it been updated recently?

    Do you perform periodic full scan of your systems and are they clean?

    Do you run any apyware packages?

    Are they active and have they been updated lately?

    Do you perform periodic scans with them and is your system clean?

    Not all virus scanners, etc catch all problems. Some catch different items.

    Consider using free online services from some of the security vendors to double check your product. Several to consider

    Trend Micro

    Fsecure ( and search for online scanner)


    Consider free spyware software for additional checks if you have not choosen to purchase a product to do this.



    Clean up the issues found and see if the problems are eliminated.

    Using the following instructions from the zonet website to get your IP address will also reveal your router's address in the default gateway entry (assuming your computer receives it's IP information via DHCP from the router or has been staticslly configured correctly). This will be the value you utilize instead of to access the router's configuration.

    spacer.gif Q: How can I find the IP address of my computer? spacer.gif A: Windows 95, 98, and ME:
    Click on Start.
    Then click on Run.
    The Run Dialogue Box will appear. Type "winipcfg" in the window as shown then click OK.
    The IP Configuration window will appear, displaying your Ethernet Adapter Information.
    Select your adapter from the drop down menu.
    If you do not see your adapter in the drop down menu, your adapter is not properly installed.
    After selecting your adapter, it will display your IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway.
    Click OK to close the IP Configuration window.

    Windows 2000 and XP:
    Click on Start and select Run.
    Type cmd then click OK.
    From the Command Prompt, enter ipconfig. It will return your IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway.
    Type exit to close the command prompt.

    Macintosh 8.x and 9.x:
    Click on the Apple Menu>Control Panels>TCP/IP.
    Select your Ethernet adapter from the Connect Via drop-down menu.
    Under Setup, select Using DHCP Server from the Configure drop-down menu, if connecting to a router DHCP server. This is the most common setting when using a router. In this configuration, your computer will be automatically assigned an IP address by the router.
    You must reboot your computer to "renew" your IP address.

    Macintosh OS X:
    Click on Apple Menu>System Preferences>Network>TCP/IP.

    At the command line type /sbin/ifconfig and you will get a listing of information. Your IP is shown after inet addr.
