Re: DG834 and DHCP
Both your pc and your router should be set to obtain IP addresses automatically in the DHCP settingss, if you are using the wizard on the cd this should do it for you.
Try not to use windows repair connection as it sets it to the wrong ip address, as your system has to match the routers, eg router address 192.168.2.1 and your pc addresss 192.168.2.2.

The Linksys Wireless router is fine, but your latop is not configured for DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol). The computer is connected to the router at layer 2, whereas HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol), sits atop the TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) layer, and seems to be trying to query the ISP's (Internet Service Provider) network for a nameserver (via DNS (Dynamic Name Service) protocol) that doesn't exist on the ISP's network. Configuring the laptop for DHCP and specifying no nameserver will fix this (the ISP's network will dynamically assign a DNS).
Its also possible (though a remote possibility) that your Linksys wifi router may be configured to disallow TCP/IP virtual circuits to/from your computer's IP address - but this is a really advanced capability of your Linksys wifi router - few know this capability even exists.
Connecting multiple wifi devices to the Linksys router should be no problem, just configure them all to interact with the router using DHCP.
what info are you pulling from cmd? if its your individual ip thats were your going wrong. if your at home then im pretty sure your using a DHCP protocol if so the dhcp or auto ip box should be checked. your router should have a default ip address that is automatically assigned by the manufacture. If setting up a DHCP connection you have no need for info in your computer. If you are working with static ips then of course those ip should have been provided to you by your isp... Alternatively you can skip the disk set up and log into your router and finish the setup manually wich is very easy. if you need help with manual set up please reply back with your router model and i will be glad to walk you thru it.
You must enable the DHCP setting on wireless router if you've configured
the computer's wireless adapter to obtain an IP address automatically.
If not you will get the "failed to acquire an IP address" error when you
try to connect to wireless network! Also don't forget to configure big
enough IP range on router's DHCP setting, because the router won't be
able to assign IP to 6 computers if you only configured 5 IP space on
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.
Chances are that the router is set to manually assign an address if
it doesn't receive an IP from the DHCP server.
I would first try removing all the wireless profiles and creating them again.
Also a windows update may have broken any firewalls you currently have installed so disabling them is also a good idea, then turn back on when you get it to work.
For that you enter in linksys configuration page with 184.108.40.206 then enable dhcp . Aso set WAN settings as your internet service provider settings. For that you have to set DNS server and other settings as your malaysia streamys broad band settings. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks.
Hello do you have dhcp on your router or do you have static ip:n on your computers? sounds like you have same ipn on both computers. you should change it to DHCP. go control panel networks settings then rightclick on your connection and properties click tcp/ipv4 settings and properties, mark optain an ip address automatically, also set dns automatically.
rourke, you shouldn't be entering the same settings on both router and desktop. I should only be on the router. It seems like something with DHCP is misconfigured on your router. Make sure it (DHCP) is enabled.
I'm not too sure how you are trying to access the router (wired or wireless) or what operating system you are using, but you will need to manually set your IP address (through Network Properties) on the computer to 192.168.2.10 (for example) with subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. If you also want internet access you will need to set the Gateway and DNS to 192.168.2.1.
Once that is set you will be able to try bring the page http://192.168.2.1 again and configure the router from there.
Once you configure the router (i assume you want to turn on DHCP again) you can set your computer back to DHCP assigned IP and DNS.
Yes its possible! first thing you need to do is call your ISP and ask what kind of connection type you have for your service then if your connection type is static connection yo need to ask for IP information regarding your service this is the connection type you need to set in your router, now if your service is Dynamic connection or DHCP you just need to hook up your router and set it to dhcp . i believe most router is set to dhcp as deafault settings so all you have to do is hook up you internet connection to your router. if your still having problem with your router you can call your router vendor support number, just give then your connection type and they will guide you regarding the router settings and how many computers you want get connected.
