Changing my IP using existing netgear DG834 x 3 modem
I intend to change my IP from Bigpond to Tadaust,because I recieve a pension and I will be able to use more internet for my money. Tadaust will not offer support for modems that arn't theirs. What settings in my computer do I need to change when they transfer my IP to Tadaust? Do I need to change settings in the modem and Outlook? I run windows XP. The modem is also connected to my wife's laptop which has Vista as the operating system.
Re: Changing my IP using existing netgear DG834 x 3 modem
Changing IP is automatic when you switch providers. If you're question is actually changing internet connection using existing modem then it's a different story altogether.
First, using Tadaust as your internet requires a username and a password for a dial up connection and a DSL PPPoE connection. You need this information before you can try to connecto Tadaust.
I am not sure if you are trying to make a dial up connection or DSL connection but both can be done on XP by going to Start -> Network Connection -> Create a new connection and then follow the instructions. Almost the same procedure on Vista.

Ok so the router will broadcast even without an IP from the modem. Without the IP even though your pc is talking to the router you will have no internet. The IP is assigned to the modem from your ISP "internet service provider" The router has to assume the IP then assign a mac address to the pc using the internet. A residential modem meaning your not a business is given a dynamic IP which can change at anytime the blade server wants it to. A business gets a static ip which never changes. There lies your issue. Whats happened is your modem has been assigned a new IP and the router is still trying use the old IP. So unplug your modem and router. Plug the modem back in and let it sync up. Once all the lights are back on "with exception for the "link" light plug the router back in give it a cpl minutes your internet will work again.
If your Compaq is based on Windows then use ipconfig/release and
ipconfig/renew command in the command prompt. To change the network IP
address, if your IP is dynamic you can change it by resetting the modem.
If it is static IP you have to contact your service provider to do it
so.You can check your network IP address using the site Ip-Details.com .
connect it to your modem with the WAN port and connect your computer to its LAN port and turn off everything. Then start modem, after 30 seconds the router and after 30 seconds the computer. No configuration should be necessary unless your modem is using an IP address and your router need another and you only have one from your ISP. Then you will need to contact your ISP to get another one or have them figure how it will work on their site. Use DHCP for your computer if possible so there will not be a subnet conflicts or IP conflicts or something.
The motorola sbg900 is acting as a router itself. I'm assuming this is what you've got? http://promo.bigpond.com/homenetwork/html_new.php
So first, go into your d-link router settings and make sure the THIRD number in the IP address is the same as your modem's ip address. This third number is the "subnet", and it must be teh same for both router and modem.
e.g. if your motorola users ip 192.168.2.1, make sure your d-link is set to 192.168.2.2. Make sure the fourth number is different, but the 1st 2nd and 3rd numbers are the same.
You can figure out what your motorola's ip is by connecting it to your computer, make sure your interent is working, and then run "ipconfig" from a command prompt window. Look for the "Default Gateway" IP. That's your motorola's ip address.
Once the IP addresses match, go into your router's settings and disable the "DHCP server".
Next, plug a network cable to go from one of the LAN ports on your motorola to one of the LAN ports on your d-link. Note that it is LAN port to LAN port. The "internet/wan" port on the d-link is never used for anything.
At this point your d-link will be operating like a "Switch", it knows it is just an extension of your existing network and it won't collide and cause you problems like it was before.
If you are using a usb dsl type modem and not a modem/router for connection, go into internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections tab, then look to see that Bigpond is selected as the default dial up.
If you are using a modem/ router which in effect is on all the time, go into the same menu in IE but tick the liitle button saying never dial a connection.
sounds to me like u r running the dell in the usb, and it has to be on for the ibm to work, or you have a dual ip addressing problem, which is a negative to the ibm when the dell is off.
My son has a IBM think pad as well, and when he uses the Ibm with his linksys wireless router he has the same problem, or did until I addressed the dual ip address issue, which I had to change the Ip address on our netgear, and left his as was and changed the one from My Dell inspiron 8600, I suggest you go to the linksys web site and follow the re install of new drivers for your router and if possible upgrade. they have available w wireless handing software program available to linksys customers as a trial you can download called NETMAGIC which also works quite well, and your able to monitor your network and it usually works well, I've used it until I upgraded to my netgear wireless G router. hope this info helps you out.
