Question about Check Point (CPWSHCRA6500UUS) Router
Everything working fine until tonight when internet connection lost. Spent lot of time with Comcast and they finally decided problem with router (CheckPoint Zone Alarm Z100G), which has been acting fine for several months.
1 computer hard wired from router
4 computers around house are wireless
Hard wired computer keeps coming up with ipaddress of 192.whaterver which Comcast says means it is hooked to a router. Even after unhooked from router it gave same IP address and would not connect. After typing ipconfig /release it still says 192. After rebooting computer it still says 192 and won't connect
Plugged a laptop directly from modem. IP config gave 2 digit address which Comcast says means it is not going through the router (but I guess you know that, don't you!) Can get on line with laptop. When I then hooked to laptop through the router I cannot connect. Comcast says it has to be a problem with the router. That doesn't explain why the desk top computer continues to say 192. Sounds like I have multiple problems but what do I know. If I knew anything about this stuff I would not have to be asking you. Anyway, thanks for any help you may be able to give.
Yes, some time ago my computer guy downloaded the file to fix the problem with Windows XP and the internet connection with the Zone Alarm router.
Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Your laptop seems to be hooked to your neighbours unsecured network automatically and it is going online with that. About comcast, when you connect a router to the modem or a computer to the modem, the modem has to be rebooted to give a valid IP to the connected device. If the modem is not rebooted the computer or the router will get 192.168.x.x IP address which is called private IP address.
