    I am trying to set up internet connection for a second pc using a Dynex Switch and my cable modem. The Dynex manual is extremely limited and tech support could not speak English. I have connected my cable modem to the Dynex switch box and have ethernet cables running from the switch ports to my pcs, however my 2nd pc is not able to get online; Reason showing is that it has not been assigned a network address. Please help. Thanks

The problem is probaby that you have one computer direct to the
internet modem, and the other to a wireless network. If the IP address in not assigned to the computer hooked directly to the cable modem, but to the wireless computer, it will drop off when the other computer is attempted to connect with the internet. Cure it by turning all computers off. Turn on the computer directly hooked to the modem first, get booted and connected to the internet. They turn on the wireless computer. Fixed mine after tearing my hair out for a week!!

What are the static ip for leased lines


You have not provided enough information to answer this definatively. However, one possible answer exists, if this relates to leased lines from a service provider or telephone company. Leased lines involve a physical connection and a network layer logical connection. At the physical layer, there are no assigned IP addresses, just devices that transform analog to digital signals (and vice versa).. The installation person should have checked signal conductivity as part of the service. The next layer up (TCP/IP), has IP addresses, either given to you on some paperwork, or via dynamic IP Address assignment request. If the service promises a static IP address, then your paperwork (for example, setup instructions) contains any access authentication (required); a group of 4 or 6 numbers, separated by periods; and at least a 2nd set of 4/6 numbers designated as your default route IP. Otherwise, you may have to turn on DHCP and let your external router port retrieve your assigned (static) IP address from the network device at the other end of your network connection. The returned IP address is your assigned static IP address. Just make sure it is not 10.x.x.x, or 127.0.x.x, or 192.168.x.x. Those address ranges are not routable in the larger Internet space.

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.

Change ip address


How To Change Your IP Address





How do I change my IP? There are MANY methods to change your IP. Some methods will work for you but may not work for someone else and vice versa.

If your IP is static, then you CAN’T change it without contacting your ISP.
If you have a long lease time (explained in this article) on your IP then you won’t be able to change your IP without cloning your MAC address, which I’ll explain later in this article.
It definitely helps if you know how the IP is being assigned to you.
You can read our DHCP definition to get a better understanding.
What is an IP lease time? IP lease time is the amount of time your ISP determines you’ll be assigned a particular IP. Some IP lease times are just a few days and other IP lease times could be set for a year or more. This setting is completely up to your ISP.
One of the easier methods to change your IP is to turn off your modem/router/computer overnight. Then turn it back on the following morning. This method WILL NOT work if your ISP has a long lease time set for your IP.
The following method will ONLY work if your computer is being assigned your external IP and not a router.
How to determine if your computer is being assigned the external IP
If your connection is direct to your computer and your computer gets the public IP and not a router, you can try this:
For Windows 2000, XP, and 2003
1. Click Start
2. Click Run
3. Type in cmd and hit ok (this opens a Command Prompt)
4. Type ipconfig /release and hit enter
5. Click Start, Control Panel, and open Network Connections
6. Find and Right click on the active Local Area Connection and choose Properties
7. Double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
8. Click on Use the following IP address
9. Enter a false IP like 123.123.123.123
10. Press Tab and the Subnet Mask section will populate with default numbers
11. Hit OK twice
12. Right click the active Local Area Connection again and choose Properties
13. Double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
14. Choose Obtain an IP address automatically
15. Hit OK twice
16. Go to What Is My IP to see if you have a new IP address

For Vista
1. Click Start
2. Click All Programs expand the Accessories menu
3. In the Accessories menu, Right Click Command Prompt and choose Run as administrator
4. Type ipconfig /release and hit enter
5. Click Start, Control Panel, and open Network and Sharing Center. Depending on your view, you may have to click Network and Internet before you see the Network and Sharing Center icon
6. From the Tasks menu on the left, choose Manage Network Connections
7. Find and Right click on the active Local Area Connection and choose Properties (If you’re hit with a UAC prompt, choose Continue)
8. Double-click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
9. Click on Use the following IP address
10. Enter a false IP like 123.123.123.123
11. Press Tab and the Subnet Mask section will populate with default numbers
12. Hit OK twice
13. Right click the active Local Area Connection again and choose Properties
14. Double-click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
15. Choose Obtain an IP address automatically
16. Hit OK twice
17. Go to What Is My IP to see if you have a new IP address

Some people have inquired about manually assigning their IP address. This IS possible, but you run a very high risk of your ISP banning you from connecting to the internet. To manually change your IP, follow the steps above for your Operating System. In step 9 or 10, depending on your O/S, enter an IP similar to the one displayed in the command prompt window. For example, if the IP displayed in the command prompt window is 75.1.2.3, change yours to 75.1.2.4. You’ll also need to manually enter the Subnet, Gateway and DNS Server IP addresses as well. If the new IP you give your computer doesn’t work, chances are someone else on the ISP network has already been assigned that IP. You’ll need to move on to the next one and keep trying until you find an open one. However, some ISPs match up your MAC or modem data to the IP that’s been assigned. If those 2 things don’t match up, you won’t be able to connect no matter what. If your router gets the IP and not your computer, you’ll need to http in to your routers interface and manually assign the IP there. It’s pretty much the same method as assigning the IP to your computer. The method that varies is in how you reach your routers interface. You can get the instructions from your manufacturer’s website.

Ip address in invalid on windows vista


All we need to do is to reset the router for about a minute, if we are still getting invalid IP which is 169.x.x.x then we need to temporarily assign an ip address on the computer.

How to assign IP address:
Windows XP
Step 1: Click Start, then Control Panel.
Step 2: When the Control Panel window opens, double-click Network Connections.
Step 3: Right-click Local Area Connection, then click Properties.
Step 4: When the Local Area Connection Properties window appears, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) then Properties.
Step 5: Change the option from Obtain an IP address automatically to Use the following IP address and enter the following:

Make sure the IP Address you'll be assigning the computer has the same first three numbers as the Default Gateway and the last number can be any number between 2 and 99. In this example, our Default Gateway is 192.168.1.1, so the IP address that should be used must start with 192.168.1. In this example, the IP address that we'll assign is 192.168.1.50.
  • IP: "192.168.1.50"
  • Subnet Mask: "255.255.255.0"
  • Default Gateway: "192.168.1.1"
After assign static IP then click OK.

Step 6: If we are not getting any response from the router(like pinging the ip address of the router) then possible product is defective.

I have 3 wireless connected and 1 computer that is connected via wired lan to this router. The problem is whenever I use the computer with wired connection, I computers with wireless connection cannot...


On the "wired" computer:
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Type IPCONFIG /RENEW
Press Enter
Type IPCONFIG /ALL
Press Enter
Note the IP-address assigned to the Ethernet adapter.
Note the date/time at which the router assigned the IP-address to your computer.

Repeat on one of the "wireless" computers.
The IP-address should *NOT* match the IP-address of your "wired" computer, and the date/time should be close, but not identical, to the valuesl from the "wired" computer.

Any error-messages from the 'IPCONFIG /ALL' command?

Nortel NetDirect error on Vista


Hi kt_rutherfor, Firstly apologies for my late reply. I thought that this was going to be a firewall problem, but looking at your error again, I now dont think that. So I'm afraid that I dont know the answer to this, I do have an idea, after researching the problem that this is a Remote-NDIS host problem. Your Uni should be able to help you with this even if it isn't at there end.

Again sorry for not being able to help

Try to assign an IP address to the second computer like 192.168.0.101 Subnet 255.255.255.0 and Default gateway 192.168.0.1

Note: This one is an example of IP address, the IP address that you need to assign is in range to the router that you have or with in range to the modem.

Trying to connect two PC's to a Netgear FE108 switcher and a Thompson cable modem. Modem is connected to "Uplink" port on switcher. Normal/Uplink switch on switcher is set to "Uplink" Can connect one PC if...


Any network device, PC or otherwise, needs an IP address assigned. So, yes, both your PC's need an IP address.
Assuming your ISP lets you have multiple PC's(IP's) then you'll have to use the IP space provided by your ISP. The default gateway would also be provided by your ISP.


The way you SHOULD do this is to use a router, linksys for example. This way you can setup you private network(I.E. 192.168.10.10 for example). This will hide and protect YOUR private space from would be hackers. The router would use the REAL IP address on the outbound side to talk to the cable/DSL modem.

btw...you can use the ipconfig command at the command prompt(I.E. a DOS window) on your working machine to see the DHCP address and gateway that was assigned. Sound like your ISP only allows you one IP. The router solution above will fix that and let you connect as many as you want because the ISP will only see the one IP from the router.

Difference between DNS and WINS


WINS is Windows Internet Naming Service, a system that determines the IP address associated with a particular network computer. This is called name resolution. WINS supports network client and server computers running Windowsand can provide name resolution for other computers with specialarrangements. Determining the IP address for a computer is a complexprocess when DHCPservers assign IP addresses dynamically. For example, it is possiblefor DHCP to assign a different IP address to a client each time themachine logs on to the network.

__________________________________________________

DNS, a.k.a Domain Name System is a database system thattranslates a computer's fully qualified domain name into anIP address.Networked computers use IP addresses to locate and connect to eachother, but IP addresses can be difficult for people to remember. Forexample, on the web, it's much easier to remember the domain namewww.amazon.com than it is to remember its correspondingIP address (207.171.166.48). DNS allows you to connect to anothernetworked computer or remote service by using its user-friendly domainname rather than its numerical IP address. Conversely, Reverse DNS(rDNS) translates an IP address into a domain name.
