Printer IP needs to be in the same range as the computers and router. All should have the same first 3 sets of numbers....

192.168.1.

the last set of numbers identifies the individual address of the piece of equipment.

Change the IP address on the printer to 192.168.1.251 and see if you can see it in the internet explorer address bar...(should bring up a web page that displays the printers status) The other numbers should look like this:

255.255.255.0 (or similiar)
192.168.1.254 (Gateway ?)

Make sure the PC's all have the same first 3 sets also...or they won't see the printer.

I am trying to connect my Dlink DKT-401 router to my Linksys cable gateway router. I am not getting internet access when connecting to the Dlink network


I DON'T THINK YOU CAN RUN 2 ROUTERS ON THE SAME NETWORK UNLESS ONE IS USED AS AN ACCESS POINT.
1. Connect as local device or bridge - If connecting the second router via Ethernet cable, plug it into one of the LAN ports on the first router. If connecting the second router wirelessly, ensure the second router is set for client mode. Note that some home wireless routers do not support client mode; these must be connected by cable. Check your router documentation for details on its client mode configuration support.

2. Check / change IP address - Most home network routers use a default IP address setting. Often, these default IP addresses will not work in a two router environment. Check the second router's IP address value and reset it if necessary to work within the valid address range of the first router (and to not conflict with any other device on the network).

3. Disable DHCP - To avoid IP address conflicts between all of the devices on the home network, only one of your two routers should assign addresses via DHCP. All mainstream routers provide an option to disable DHCP as part of the router's configuration screens.

Instead of adding a second wired router to an existing network, consider adding a network switch instead. A switch accomplishes the same goal of extending the size of a network, but it does not require any IP address or DHCP configuration, greatly simplifying configuration.

IP Conflicts in a work place


An IP address conflict occurs when two computers on a LAN or the Internet have been assigned the same IP. IP conflicts between two computers normally render either one or both of them unusable for network operations.

How IP Address Conflicts Happen

Two computers can acquire conflicting IP addresses in any of several ways:

· A system administrator assigns two computers on the LAN the same Static IP Address.

· A system administrator assigns a computer a static IP address within the local network's DHCP range (dynamic IP range), and the same address is automatically assigned by the LAN DHCP server.

· A malfunction in the network's DHCP server allows the same dynamic address to automatically be assigned to multiple computers.

· An ISP accidentally assigns two customers the same IP address (either statically or dynamically).

· A mobile computer is put into standby / hibernate mode and then awakened later.

Note that other forms of IP conflicts can also occur on a network. For example, one computer may experience an IP address conflict with itself if that computer is configured with multiple Network Adapters. System administrators may also create IP conflicts by accidentally connecting two ports of a network switch or router to each other.

Recognizing IP Address Conflicts

On most Microsoft Windows computers, if you attempt to set a fixed (static) IP address that is already active on the local network, you will receive the following pop-up error message:

The static IP address that was just configured is already in use on the network. Please reconfigure a different IP address.

On newer Microsoft Windows computers having dynamic IP conflicts, you should receive a balloon error message in the Taskbar as soon as the operating system detects the issue:

There is an IP address conflict with another system on the network.

Sometimes, especially on older Windows computers, a message similar to the following may instead appear in a pop-up window:

The system has detected a conflict for IP address...

On Mac or Linux computers, a similar message will normally appear on screen.

Resolving IP Address Conflicts

Try the following remedies for IP conflicts:

1. For networks where IP addresses are fixed (statically assigned), ensure each local host is configured with a unique IP address.

2. If your computer has a dynamically assigned address, releasing and renewing its IP address can workaround IP address conflicts.
3. If your home router is believed to have a faulty DHCP server causing IP conflicts on the home network, upgrading the router firmware may resolve this problem.

IP conflict on my home network


Hi.
If there is an IP conflict, that means that two different devices connected to your home router are getting the same IP. In this case one or more connected devices will have limited connectivity, as they will be unable to access network resources.


The following troubleshooting must be performed on one networked device at the time.

Check if the internet provider that you are using allows DHCP. Most broadband providers use DHCP.

DHCP (dynamic host control protocol) means that the IPs, instead of being static are being assigned each time by the router.

If you use DHCP, then ensure that all devices connected to the network are not set on Static IP. If there is a device that must be set on static (eg. a network printer), then change manually the device IP to a different one. Ensure that the new IP belongs to your network range.

Reset the network settings on all connected devices. On computers remove the network adapter from the installed hardware devices list in control panel.
Restart computers one by one, after removing the adapter, and allow the network card to reinstall, using driver disk when needed (ensure that you have the drivers first). It will set itself to DHCP by default.

If that does not work, then you can try changing MAC address on Windows. The MAC address is an unique identifier that is assigned by manufacturer to any Ethernet adapter. The MAC address is used by the router to determine IP. To this purpose see: Changing MAC addresses on Windows .

If still no luck , then the next step would be resetting and re-configuring the router again, using the settings given by your ISP. Ensure that you have your Internet Service Provider configuration settings before resetting the router

At this point it may be worth testing a different Ethernet adapter (eg an USB adapter), rather than resetting the router.

If all that does not work, then either the router, or one of the two network adapter is probably defective. In some case virus or malaware can also cause IP conflicts.In that case ensure that the computer is clean, and eventually replace the router, after testing PC network adapter.

Note:If your home LAN uses static settings instead of DHCP, simply check that the IP set for each device is different.

Regards.

zSB(3,3) Installing a Two Router Network Installing a router to work as the second one on a home network requires special configuration. Do the following on the second router to ensure it (and the devices attached) function properly:
    1. Connect as local device or bridge - If connecting the second router via Ethernet cable, plug it into one of the LAN ports on the first router. If connecting the second router wirelessly, ensure the second router is set for client mode. Note that some home wireless routers do not support client mode; these must be connected by cable. Check your router documentation for details on its client mode configuration support.

Installed a new lynksys router and now can't 'find' it. I contacted lynksys support and they could not find a solution. Old lynksys router had a differenct IP address


IP addresses in a a home system are normally assigned dynamically (that means they are not necesarily always the same). If you require it (or any other device on your network) to have a particular address, you must set it to that address.

Network Magic from Cisco can help you to do this.

I hope this helps you

How do I change the printer address on my optra t614


I only work on HP printers, but I believe I've seen this model before, if it is simply a network printer, it should have it's own web administrator console. Basically, if you type in 192.168.0.251 it should bring you to a control panel for the printer where you will be able to change the IP address. (Note: You will lose connection to the printer when the IP address is changed, but you can simply access it by entering the new IP address in your web browser)

Lost the install CD


hi,
it should be an ip conflict.I believe you are using both routers at same time which can give same ip address (as both routers ip range is same).hence by disconnecting one router(from network/power) will make your ip conflict resolved.
secondly there is no need of linksys installation cd as it will do more harm than good.routers dont need any software to run where as network adapters need drivers.if you have any further doubts ,you can directly post it.
thank you

I have Verizon Fios install in my home. I use to have Comcast. This is the situation, before the Fios my linksys wireless router was connected directly to a modem. Now my linksys wireless router is...


Your IP address for you linksys router needs to be changed.  More than likely there using the same IP address such as 192.168.0.1.
You have to convert your linksys router to a switch and change the IP address range it uses to on that doesn't conflict with the Verizon router.
10.150.1.1 should work.
