Windows XP: How to release and renew IP addresses


IP addresses can either be assigned manually or automatically. When they are assigned automatically, a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server hands them out and determines which computer or other device gets which address. This process usually flows smoothly, but there are times when you may need to release or renew an IP address even when using DHCP.

There are several ways to release and renew IP addresses in Windows XP. Each procedure is described below.

From the system notification tray:

1. Right click on the network connection icon in the system notification tray.
2. Select Repair. Windows will automatically release the current IP address, reset the network connection, and request an IP address from the DHCP server. (The new IP address that gets assigned may be a different one from before, or it may be the same one.)

From the Start menu:

1. Click the Start button.
2. Right click on My Network Places.
3. Select Properties.
4. Right click on the network connection that is currently in use.
5. Select Repair. (If you choose a network connection that is not in use, Repair will be grayed out.)

For either of the above methods, you can release and renew your IP address manually by clicking Disable instead of Repair, and then right-clicking and choosing Enable.

From the command prompt:

1. Click the Start button.
2. Click Run.
3. Type "cmd" and press [Enter].
4. At the command line, type "ipconfig /release" and press [Enter].
5. Type "ipconfig /renew" and press [Enter].
6. Type "exit" and press [Enter].

Plz send me the current status of contolling ip spoofing through inter domain packet filters


The current status is "operational" -- packet filtering is being used so that "outgoing" IP-addresses originating from a network are required to be IP-addresses that are valid within that network.

I try to contact my router with the adress 192.168.0.254 and it doesn't work. Can you help me?


Basically your Router will have a hard coded addres on your network such as 192.xxx.xxx.xxx. You can find this address in your network properties. On your computer go to:

Control Panel
Double click on Network Connections
Select your Network Adapter (Double Click)
Click on the Support Tab

Here where it says default Gateway is the address of your Router enter this address in the Browser address bar and you ahould be able to communicate with the Web GUI of your Router.

Good Luck
