Turn off the "DHCP Service".

That would be "Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol", and it's the service that assigns IP addresses automatically.

If you need "DHCP" to connect yourself, you could always turn off your "ssid broadcast".

That way, nobody (including you) will see your router while scanning, wardriving, etc.
Of course, you will know it's there and what "ssid"
you gave it, so you'll be able to connect just by using the right ssid.

Need my ip address

There is a few ways to get the IP address.

On a pc connected run arp it will give you a list of connected devices. One may be the router.

Use the serial connection on the router and run "show ip int brief" it will give you all the defined ips.

Hp officejet 7210. When router resets, I loose my printer connection.

IS this printer wired LAN to your router? If so, look in the settings to your printer and check the IP address.

Now in the settings menu, it should have an option for you to set DLNA or manual. Set to manual. Enter the same IP address the machine originally had. If you could not find what ip address your printer had, in windows startmenu find run or command prompt and type ipconfig all.

Find the ip address for your computer. Add 10 to it. For example, if it is than give your printer If it asks for a subnet mask use

I believe the problem you are having is that every time your router resets it gives your printer a different ip address (dynamic IP), so your printer driver software can no longer find it. You need to use a static ip address (manually giving the printer an ip address) so it never changes and the driver can always find it.

I have a wireless G router with a remote that connects to the router. It connects to the router but will not go on out to the internet. When I type IP config and check, it gives the wrong weird IP address....

If you are getting IP address like 169.254.x.y ( x and y might be any numbers), then it is autogenerated IP address.
Computer generates this IP address when it doesn't get IP address from the router.
If your network is secured then make sure that you have correct network key or password.
Check the wireless settings of the router.
Make sure that there is no static IP address assigned to the wireless network connection.

Is there any case that the port from belkin router

This may happen due to double NAT issue.... the DSL modem might give an IP address in the range of belkin route....that is 192.168.2.X check for the ip address when the computer is directly connected to the DSL modem... now check for the IP adress when the Belkin alone is connected to the computer.... if they both give an IP adress like this 192.168.2.X......(X can be any value) then you will face the above issue..... in that case you can login to router and change the IP address of belkin router from 192.168.2.X to 192.168.15.X this will resolve the issue

Ps3 wont connect to wireless


Reset your router, then give your PS3 a static IP address and go into your router interface, find the DMZ feature and put in the IP address that you gave the PS3, just make sure the IP you give it is within the DHCP pool of IP addresses.

The PS3 will now be sat outside the routers firewall giving you FULL access to internet content and gaming online.

Now test connection settings and you will notice you will now have an open connection to the internet.

Admin interface

Make sure that you have still a valid ip address on command prompt. Go to start - click run - type cmd (open box) - click ok - type ipconfig after the cursor - hit enter and check ip address. If you are getting an ip address of or ip starting with 169.254....then that is the reason. Unplug and replug router to regain the ip. also check firewall and proxy server. they should be disabled
