Can i renew/release the rooter ip address?


The WAN IP address of your router is assigned by your provider (TelCo, CATV provider, etc.). Most IP addresses are dynamic - which means they can change at any time without notice. When this actually happens is determined by them. It us not unusual to have the same IP address for months at a time however. There is not really something that you can do to make it change outside of contacting them specifically to have them do this for you.

LAN address changes are easier - and it is a process you can perform yourself. Do you need instructions for that? Keep in mind that changing a LAN address will not restore connections to a site that has blocked your IP. They have marked your WAN IP and no connection from the local area network (LAN) in your house will be able to connect.

SmartAX MT880 driver


The SmartAX MT880 is a Router and does not require drivers to access.

Access to the Router can be done by type the I.P address of the Router in a browser e.g Internet Explore

To find the I.P address of the Router.

From a Windows PC connected to the SmartAX MT880 via a network cable,
Click the Start Menu, Click Run (On Vista and 7 you can type run in the search bar)

From with-in Run, Type cmd, Click Ok
Once the Command prompt windows appears, type Ipconfig /all with the window.

From the list of information find the line called Default Gateway (most like under Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection) a example is provide below.


Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.13
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1

In this example the I.P address of the router is 192.168.1.1.

I've been trying to connect my desktop to a wireless network. I have a Linksys wireless G adapter. It is installed and connected. The problem is my wireless connection through windows isn't connecting. It...


Is the desktop connected via the wired network also? The IP address it's trying to assign in this case comes from the router, if you are plugged into the router with a cable you should be able to reach it through IE at address 192.168.1.0 (maybe 1.1 for linksys). It should come up and ask for an ID and password. The default is something like admin and blank password but you may have reset it. Anyway all that info is in the router manual which can be downloaded. Once in, check the DHCP settings. DHCP sets the IP address and it probably conflicts with something else on the network or a different network. You could just try rebooting everything first, that's always a good choice. For instance, if you have a laptop that's connected, DHCP may have given your IP address to it, when you try to connect from the desktop, it's trying to renew an address instead of getting a new one, because it's lease hasn't expired. It gets confused, just try rebooting everything.

Hi,
Do you have a computer with wireless connectivity?
if yes then there is something that u should try first/
Enable internet connection sharing on that computer and connect it via ethernet cable to your xbox
and assing the ip address manually, the default gateway would be the ip address of the computer
if you are able to connect via this method then you need to speak to your ISP

Networking problem


From client pc
1.) click start
2.)click run
3.)in the box that opens, type cmd
4.)click ok button
A black box will appear
5.) type ipconfig
6.)press the enter key
Some lines of text will appear. One of these lines says IP Address please take note of the numbers to left of this. This is your Clients IP address
Now, you said your server IP address is 192.168.1.2 and lets say from the instructions I just gave you that you find your client IP address is 192.168.2.5. If your client pc does not have an IP address that begins with 192.168.1 it will not see your server. Also, If your client pc in question has an IP address the same as another one of your client pc's it will not see a server.
I suggest the following.
Change the IP address on your client pc following these steps
From the desktop of the client pc
1.)click start
2.)open control panel
3.)double click Network Connections
4.)right click Local Area Connection (it is possible to have more than one)
5.)left click properties
6.)a window will open, in the middle of this window is box you can scroll down in, scroll down and find TCP/IP
7.) left click on TCP/IP to highlight it
8.)once highlighted click the properties buttton just below the scroll box.
9.)another window will open
10.)click the dot next to Use the following IP Address
11.) enter the following
IP Address = 192.168.1.??? (replace question marks with a number of your choosing. Just dont go above 254 and don't use a number that you are using on your other pc's)
Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.0
Gateway = 192.168.1.2
12.) click ok
13.) click ok on any other open windows and reboot PC. then test connectivity.

PLEASE NOTE: There are alot of things that can change what you need to enter for the Gateway, Subnet Mask and IP address. Generally with simple networking it is what i have described above but if you have a Cable/DSL router for internet or wireless router then the numbers you must put in these fields changes. The directions I gave you above is assuming that you just want to get your pc talking to your server. It does not take into account any routers or advanced networking equipment. If you do have a router I will need more info and a somewhat different set of directions will apply.

XBOX LIve help - wireless network adapter


Go to your Airport Utility, then Option-Click the radio setting button to reveal a drop down menu, from there, select "b/g compatible", not "n (b/g compatible)". That takes away the benefits of an 802.11 n network, but it gets the job done with 54 Mbps.

Next up is to Option-Click the button for encryption setting and select "WPA Personal". In DHCP settings under Internet, using the 360's MAC address, reserve an IP so it stays consistent. Finally, in your NAT options, select the 360's IP address as the "Default Host" to prevent any Live functionality issues, and restart your Extreme Base Station. Once you go to the network settings on your System blade, you should see your WPA-encrypted network show up. So your 360 and Airport Extreme can work together with encryption, although you kind of neuter the Base Station in the process.

Internet connection


ok, well give this a shot then. But is it possible that the other computer is connected to a network called Belkin?

It is also possible that MAC address filtering is turned on on the router so it will not let your computer connect. if it is, you will have to add your mac address (00-1A-73-DE-12-D5) to the approved list of MACs.

Anyway, you can try manually setting your IP address.
and see if that gets you on. If it doesn't, and MAC address control isn't the problem, then either you have a driver problem or your laptop and wireless router hate each other desparately.
  1. Click Start and click Control Panel.
  2. Select Network and Internet, then Network and Sharing Center, and click Manage network connections from the list of tasks.
  3. Right click your local area connection and click Properties.
  4. Select ipv4 Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) from the list and click the Properties button.
  5. Select Use the following IP address.
IP address - 192.168.2.199
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Gateway - 192.168.2.1
DNS Server - 192.168.2.1

This will force you computer to get network settings that match the netowrk. But beware, this will affect you if you try to go another network. You will then have to switch back to automatic configuration. but if you set up these settings and still can't get on, there is something wrong with the driver configuration. But make sure that there isn't another network called belkin.

If the manual configuration doesn't work, try updating the wireless driver from the manufacturer's website. Also try connecting to a wireless hotspot somewhere else and see if it is a computer problem or a problem with this specific wireless network.

Post back if you need anything further, I'll hang in with ya as long as I can.

Xbox live dont work please help


the reason for this part to fail differs along with the difference of the type of connection you are using to connect your Xbox 360 console as follows:

a. Direct connection to modem:

1. Make sure first no other devices connected to the modem at the same time as some modems has an Ethernet port along with a USB port so, you might think you can use both at the same time & connect the PC through USB with the console through Ethernet & that's incorrect so, we need to disconnect the PC first.
2. Turn the modem off then turn it back on after couple of seconds (by turning the modem off I mean to unplug it from the wall outlet even if you have a power button for it), then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then "Restore to Factory Defaults" and when it ask you to Apply Settings select "Test Xbox Live". 3. If it's still not working we need to get the Physical Address of your PC to put it on the dashboard of your Xbox 360 console as some cable companies are preventing any unknown MAC Addresses from connecting, to get the Physical Address of you PC connect the PC only to the modem then follow these steps here, the physical address will look like this 00-E0-98-C1-88-C2.
4. Go on the dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then “Edit Settings” then “Additional Settings” tab then select “Advanced settings” & put the Physical Address of your PC without the dashes on the “Alternate MAC Address” part and select "Done", when it asks you to Apply Settings choose “Test Xbox Live”.

b. Wired connection to router:

1. Go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then “Restore To Factory Defaults", when it ask you to apply settings select "Test Xbox Live".
2. Turn the router off then turn it back on after couple of seconds, then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then "Test Xbox Live Connection".
c. Wireless connection to router:
1. Go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then “Restore To Factory Defaults", when it ask you to apply settings select "Test Xbox Live"
2. Go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to the "system" area then "Network Settings" then "Edit Settings" then select your wireless settings part down there "Wireless Mode, Network Name,..." the console will automatically then search for your wireless network and when it find it and you select it, it will ask you to enter your wireless key which is called WEP or WPA key - you can find it written on your wireless router or then you need to contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to get it from them - when it ask you to apply settings select "Test Xbox Live".
3. Just a kind of higher security that some router may use than the WEP & WPA key, you have also to accept the Xbox 360 connection to your wireless network on the router settings, you have to access to your router settings as mentioned before to check on the wireless security part whether your router apply a MAC filtering option, which is an option that blocks any unknown MAC address (the ID of any device) from accessing to your wireless network, and if it applies that kind of security you’ll find your Xbox 360 MAC address on the list there so, allow the Xbox 360 to get connected to the network, or even you can just turn off the MAC access control option instead of that, then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then "Test Xbox Live Connection".
4. If it's still not working, you can put the Xbox 360 console - as a trial - in a closer position to the router to see wither it's going to pick up an IP address or not.
5. If even after you turn off the MAC filtering option on your router settings your Xbox 360 can't still get connected to Xbox Live you need then to update your router firmware (The router software) and if you don't know how to do so then call your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to assist you with that, then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then "Test Xbox Live Connection".
d. ICS (Internet Connection Sharing):
1. Go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then “Restore to Factory Default" when it asks you to Apply Settings choose “Test Xbox Live”.
2. Allow the ICS option on the PC as mentioned before, then test Xbox Live.
3. If it's still not working, set the IP Settings manually to be:
IP Address: 192.168.0.2
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.0.1
Then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then "Test Xbox Live Connection".
4. If it's still not working, you can get the IP address of your connection from the PC as mentioned before then set your IP manually on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console using this IP address, when it asks you to Apply Settings choose “Test Xbox Live”.
