5610 sw phone displaying Adddress Conflict * to program


Reboot the phone to grab a new DHCP address. If it still does that, then something else has that IP, and the phone has a static as well, so teh phones IP will need to change.

I want to set up my new HP PHOTOSMART eSTATION C510 series Printer. Where I bought my printer said I would need a router. So I bought a new CISCO linksys E1000. When I got home and started to get...


. The printer's instruction guide should show you how to set the printer's IP address ?
it has to be in the range of what the modem / router you already have is.
If set to auto ip address on the printer
The existing modem / router would have a DCHP server most likely you could log into this router and look sat the ip leases and when it allocates a lease to the printer you set it as Static or permanent lease. There would be an ethernet port on the back of the router to plug in your printer to.
If manual setup then log into router / modem and set the dchp leases to start above 10 . it would be xx.xx.xx.1 to xx.xx.xx.254 just change it to xx.xx.xx.10 to xx.xx.xx.254 and xx means whatever it is set to for its network address. eg 10.0.0.1 - 10.0.0.254 . Set the printer to ip address to eg 10.0.0.9

On your MAC you may need to download and install a printer driver .
Mac is very clever and may set up the printer once you do this automatically by detecting the printer and setting it up in the MAC

If it is a wi fi printer you need to know the encryption settings by logging into the wi fi router and then set this up on the printer ?

New computer; can't find original installation disk


You should not need an installation disc.

Connect your PC to the router with a network cable and type 192.168.1.1 into the browser adddress bar. This will connect you to the router setup and maintenance screen, from where you can configure the router. If necessary you can reset it to factory settings and enter a new password.

You can then disconnect your cable and use it wirelessly.

I am trying to setup smc2804wbrp-g i did everything and i try to do the the ipconfig and it gives me the proper ip adddress and everything but i am not getting the internet connection


Are you getting the ip address by DHCP? If everything is working on the router side, open the command prompt and try to ping , for example, www.google.com, if you do not get a response, then you are not getting out to the internet through the modem. Also, try resetting the modem. Some companies modems, such as Comcast, require you to resert the modem by unplugging the modem for 10-15 seconds, then powering it back on. This registers the MAC address for the new device. If this doesn't work, you may need to call the company and tell them what you need to do.

Router not hooked up properly


Router setup
If you are using the cd that comes with the router, that is the problem. You do not have to use the cd. Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed.
then:
Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line.



If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Just connected to cable modem from dsl


two things are you hooked up from the dsl to the router via Ethernet or usb is so check the settings in the router, it should be auto, so it could choose but lets not assume anything.may sure dhcp client or server is enabled on the router, if not it would not pick up the ip adddress from dsl.
Is the mac address of your computer hardcoded to your dsl, if it is then you would have to clone your pc mac to the router for it to work.
If this is not the case, try a different router if it works the router is faulty. if that does not work plug the dsl directly to the pc and go to start, run type ipconfig /all if you recieve an ip address and you can see a dns address from your isp and you can go to the internet, then the problem is your router, if not the problem is with you isp dsl, please contact them. was this helpful let me know.
