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.

How to find a IP address for my emachines laptop


go to start -- run and type in CMD
hit enter to open a black command prompt window

type in "ipconfig" without the quotes and hit enter. This will give you your IP address.

If you need the IP address from your provider that you are using out on the public internet, just go to http://whatismyipaddress.com/ and it will tell you what your external public IP address is.

I have a lap top,i bought a router Q.how can i connect without lost the office internet line?

To connect your router to your network with out losing your Internet connection will depend on what kind of modem your have. If you have a modem with a built in router in it you can connect it to one of the extra network ports on the modem.


However if your modem does not have a router built into it you will have to disconnect the modem for a short time to connect the router into the network.

Note if your have a modem with a router in it the best thing to do is let it keep assigning IP addresses and turn on the DHCP server in your router and use it just as wireless access point. To do this you will need to set it to the same IP group that you already have on your network. So example if your modem has an IP address of 192.168.5.1 you will want your router the routers IP address to 192.168.5.2. The third number section is what is important. If you do not currently know the IP address of your modem and it is connected directly to your computer the link below will help you determine the IP address of the modem. The IP address listed as the gateway IP address should be the IP address to your modem. Note if you already have a router in your network this will be its IP address.

If you need more help and/or have trouble getting everything setup let me know the make and model of your network devices and how you have them connected so I can see what we need to do to get you setup with your new router.

Everytime i try to go online with my ps3 it says ip address timed out


Your IP address is given by a DHCP server. This could be your router or your ISP. If you have a router the easy way to reset it is to turn the power off for 30 seconds and then power it back on. If you don't have a router, disconnect the phone line for 2 minutes.
You may need to reboot your PS3.
There are more things to try. e.g. giving your machine a fixed IP address (via control panel and networks) This works best if you have a router. If you need more help get back to me

My computer keeps telling me I do not have an internet connection when I connect my router. I can unplugg the router and plug it back into my dsl modem and the internet again works. why won't my router...


More info would be helpful, but I am assuming that you have a router device that is not the DSL Modem, maybe a linksys, or something? Most likely what is happening is that the DSL modem is assigning private IP addresses, like 192.168.1.x, and the router is obtaining that IP address on its WAN interface, but is also configured for the LAN at 192.168.1.x, which is the same subnet, so it cannot route packets to the internet properly, as both interfaces have the same network range. Can you give me more info? I can try to walk you thru step by step.
Step 1. Verify current IP address when internet connection is working. (Go to a command prompt and type ipconfig, press enter, and document what your IP address is, also document the gateway address and subnet mask)
Step 2. Connect to the router instead of the DSL modem, do the same thing, document your IP address, gateway, and subnet mask
Step 3. Compare the two, your IP may be different, and the gateway may even be different, but see if both are trying to use the same IP range.

If they are the same, or close (the first 3 octets(set of numbers) are the same) then you will need to configure the lan side of either your DSL modem, or the router to be on a different IP address.

To do this will vary depending on the model of your router, so if you respond in the next few hours, I will still be online, and will try to assist.

Wireless Router


If you clicked repair connection at anytime, you need to reset the router, by way of a reset button on the rear or front, go to your wired network card properties in control panel>network connections, click TCP/IP line, click properties again and select obtain ip address automatically. At this point you can run the setup wizard again if you wish using the rj45 cable You should set up the router using an RJ45 lan cable which comes with the unit and get into the routers settings by typing it's ip address in your web browser 192.168.0.1. Check that DHCP is set at enabled to give your pc's an automatic ip address. Check that wireless is also enabled and save any changed settings. Go to the properties of your pc's wireless adapter in control panel network connections and on its TCP/IP line check that obtain ip address automatically is ticked. when you have set up your wireless connection and the router is set up correctly, disconnect the rj45 cable and if neccassary dissable the wired network card so as the router looks for your wireless adapter and gives it an ip address. When a connection is found by your wireless connection you need to go into the router again and set up your wireless security, using whatever method you choose eg WEP or WPA PSK. You need to select the numbers and letters mixture pass phrase that you use for encyption and use the same numbers in the wireless adapter when it asks for the passkey no., you should then be able to connect again securely.
