Question about Computers & Internet
I had posted this query:
I have two laptops which share the internet connection through a wireless router.The router is dlink WBR 1310. But i can use internet on only one of them....I keep getting the error message...two computers have same IP address...please contact network administrator....what do i need to do for this? I cannot access the internet on both the laptops simultaneously,,,,
reading ur reply i checked my settings and I saw that my IP address and DCHP setting detection on my TCP/Ip properties is set to automatic and logging into the router the DCHP server is enabled too....even them I am facing this same problem..... so if you could provide me with an atlernative solution i will be really grateful......
1. Simply disabling and then re-enabling of the adapter will cause to start the DHCP process again, without uninstalling the devices.
I would enter static IP addresses in both computers and see if that eliminates the connection problem. Then set both computers back to DHCP - one after the other.
Did this help?
2. Running 250ft of Ethernet cable is almost the maximum distance you can go (300ft). The connection will never be great - too much loss on the way.
If you can go without wireless in your garage, then simply use a switch instead of a router. Switches are EXTENDING networks, while routers SEPERATE them.
I assume that both are running on the same subnet and handing out DHCP in the same range.
So...here we go...
As far as I remember is D-lInk using 192.168.0.1/24 (255.255.255.0) as it's default. Configure the IP address of the second router to be in the samesubnet (/24) as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP serverin the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2through 192.168.0.100, you can assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 asit's IP address.
Then disable the DHCP server in the second router.
Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the first router.
Connect from the first router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports onthe second router. If there is no uplink port and neither of therouters have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable, but I think the D-links have auto-sensing installed (which means that the router can use any ethernet cable). If not, here is a good description how to make one (You can use the same cable - just cut one end off and change the cables): http://www.littlewhitedog.com/content-8.html
Important: Do not connect the WANport!
