You need to check the network address of the newly connected network. you said it was connected to a network A (e.g. 192.168.1.0 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 or /24) and now you are connected to network B (e.g. 192.168.2.0 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 or /24). Your device had an ip address assigned in the old network, could be 192.168.1.99 this ip can not communicate with the new network 192.168.2.0, you need fir to find out what is the new network address and subnet you need to ask your network admin. and then modify the setting of your router to be part of the new network.
Is the laptop connected to the router wirelessly? because that can be the porblem if that laptop is not connected wirelessly it wont be working, so make sure that the laptop is connected to your wireless network...
In networking the subnet mask is used with IP address to get the Network ID. The Network ID is used to identify that the particular IP address belongs to which network. To get the network ID the SubnetMask is AND ed with the IP address in binary format.
IPv4 address contains 4 fields and each field is 8bit
IP Address - 192.168.10.2
Subnet Mask (Default)- 255.255.255.0
192 -> 11000000
168 -> 10101000
10 -> 00001010
2 -> 00000010
255 -> 11111111
Logical AND (formula)
* 0 AND 0 = 0 * 0 AND 1 = 0 * 1 AND 0 = 0 * 1 AND 1 = 1
Try assigning your laptop a static IP. To do this in Windows:
Open Windows Start menu.
Open Control Panel.
Classic view: Open Network Connections Category view: Select Network and Internet Connections, and thenNetwork Connections.
Double-click on your active LAN or Internet connection.
In the General tab, highlight the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) item, and clickProperties.
In the General tab, click Use the following IP address, and enter:
- IP address. The static IP address you want to assign to this computer (try 192.168.1.110 to start).
- Subnet mask. Subnet mask used by your router (try 255.255.255.0 to start).
- Default gateway. IP address of your router's default gateway (try 192.168.1.1 to start).
In Use the following DNS server addresses, enter all the IP addressses for the DNS servers your router uses (or you can try your router's address, probably 192.168.1.1).
First connect that desktop to linksys with ethernet cable. then set ip property to network adapter . Set ip address ,subnet mask and gateway ip to ip property. Set ip address as the ip of network like if router ip is 192.168.1.1 so set ip like 192.168.1.15 set subnet mask as same as your other computer. Set default gatway ip as your router ip. Then you can connect internet. Let me know if you need more assistance.
Yes, the xp machine connects to the net. DHCP is not enabled. The ipconfig/all command brings up the correct static ip address, subnet mask, and default gateway. But it does also say under the ip configuration that ip routing is not enabled. I did have the 2000 machine connected when I first set up the router yesterday, but I booted up my laptop to try to set up a wireless connection, and then I had to reinstall the entire router set-up.
