Your phone needs an IP address in order to communicate. Normally, it asks a "host" for that IP. You need to be connected to the internet for it to connect to the normal host, and your router should be willing to give it that IP address. "DHCP" is how devices ask for and get an IP address.
You shouldn't have to configure anything except the PC's should have IP and gateway set to auto.
Here is how it works:
A router connects two separate networks and manage the traffic between them.
In most home network applications the router connects your local group of computers and devices known as the LAN with the Internet, commonly called the WAN or Wide Area Network.
The router usually assigns unique Local IP addresses to all of the devices connected to it via a service known as DHCP. The addresses assigned by your router are private addresses http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_net... and are not routable across the Internet.
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is an auto configuration protocol used on IP networks. Computers that are connected to IP networks must be configured before they can communicate with other computers on the network. DHCP allows a computer to be configured automatically, eliminating the need for intervention by a network administrator. It also provides a central database for keeping track of computers that have been connected to the network. This prevents two computers from accidentally being configured with the same IP address. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic_Hos...
Your cable or DSL modem will get a Public WAN IP address from your ISP's DHCP service. These public IP addresses are leased in blocks by your ISP and are Internet routeble. The modem is connected to the WAN port on your router. The router will manage the traffic between the devices on the LAN and the Internet.
If your 5 port switch is connected to one of the router's LAN ports and router's DHCP is on then it will configure the clients attached to It automatically.
Do your service provider limits number of ip address (10.10.10.10) you can have? if they provide only one, you would need to use a router to share one public ip address. Sometimes it records the network address of your network device (00:00:00:00), and won't give u another ip if the device changed. If you have two routers in your network, turn off the dhcp on the second router, and use LAN ports and do not use the WLAN on the second router. if you want to manage the second router, give it an static ip from the first router. Bad port? Bad cable? Modem => router => PC/IPOD/switch or modem => router => PC/IPOD/Switch/ 2nd Router without dhcp and no WLAN ) Good luck
Thanks for a very thorough problem report. It's a little ambiguous near the end, though, so I will have to restate what I think I understand you are saying.
You are saying that you have your internet connection and AP in one building, and two devices or PCs in that building can access the internet and share files (though you don't specify if they are using the EOC-2610 access point or are just accessing the router in some other fashion). But you have a remote building where there is one PC and one EOC-2610 in Client Bridge mode, and although both EOC-2610 units seem to be communicating with each other, the PC will not communicate with anything. (I presume you have inspected the access point's configuration screens and verified that it does have the other EOC-2610 listed as a connected client.)
First, the PC in the remote building has to be connected to the Client Bridge EOC-2610 by its ethernet cable in order to access the network. Second, the PC in the remote building has to have a valid IP address in the range 192.168.0.0/24, or it won't communicate with anything. If you are relying on your router's DHCP to assign your PC an IP address, verify that this has happened by examining your PC network properties. If you are assigning all IP addresses manually, make sure you have assigned the PC an address, and one that doesn't duplicate some other device.
Sometimes failure to specify DNS servers appears to be a lack of communication with the network. Open a browser and type 126.96.36.199 in the URL bar. If you get to fixya.com, you have a good network connection. If you type fixya.com in the URL bar and can't get the same result, you need to define DNS servers on the PC (or inside your router).
A router between your ISP and the switch will assign addresses to your PC, the printers, whatever you connect.
Or, if just the one computer needs access to the Internet and the printers, you can install/configure a second Ethernet port in the PC, connect it and the printers to the switch, and give them all static IPs in a private address space (e.g., 192.168.1.0/24)
If you have the same model, on the back of the printer next to the ethernet port is a little button/ hole. Push and hold that down for a couple seconds until it starts printing. It will print out the IP address. Manually assign your computer to have an IP address in the same range (I.E. if the printer says 192.168.1.23, set your computer to 192.168.1.29 with the same subnet mask, etc.). Plug a network cable from your computer directly into the printer. Then, you can change the settings.
You need to connect a router to the cable modem. The router then gets an IP address from Comcast and provides a gateway between the computers connected to the router.
The modem expects to communicate with a single Ethernet device, and provides an IP address to the first device that provides a piece of data called a MAC address. By placing a router in-between, the router gets the IP address that lets you communicate on the Internet. It provides local IP addresses to the equipment connected to the local Ethernet and "routes" those to the Internet. You can either hook your two devices into the router if it has enough ports, or hook you switch to the router and hook your PC and PS3 into the switch.
The IP address that you have is an automatic IP address the Windows generates. It basically means your computer is not getting an IP address from the router (DHCP). You should try powering everything off. Then, in this order, power on your modem, wait 30 seconds, then, power on your router, wait 30 seconds, then power on your computers...This should fix the problem since one computer is working already.
