Bridges sometimes use mac cloning to clone the device that is attached to it. go into bridges config page and disable this feature and also make sure to select dhcp since bridges will also use a static ip as well. i just hope this helps alittle. i dont have your exact model of bridge here so if you can comment on it i can get back to you and try to help further

You need to manully assign your computer an address in the 12.168.1.x range with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 rather than whatever is currently being used(most likely assigned by DHCP),

Once you do this and connect to the device, it is best to normally give it an address in your norml ip range, reset your computer back to normal, and then re-connect using the newly assigned address to verify it has been done correctly.

Depending on the model, you may also have the option of making the initial connection with a serial cable and then make any desired changes including device IP address by this method.

Cant connect the d-link website after ip replacement.


Hello,

Have you tried to reset your router? If not, do so. It will reset everything to factory default.

To reset, look for a hole near the ports, where it says RESET. Use a pointed object such as a paper clip.

Hope it helps.

Same problem with speed stream


when it comes to mac you got to check with the network settings.
If the modem you are using has a DHCP program enabled, then you will have to configure the network settings (configure ipv4) using dhcp
and renew the ip address, if not then you will have to create a manual connection(internet connect) in the same network settings and use your ISP provided user name and the password to connect.
When your internet is connected using internet connected the enet light will be off on the modem

Cannot share connection


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.

I am trying to connect my D-Link router to my PC. I changed providers from DSL to CAble, and now it doesn't work. When I try to hook up the router to the cable modem, I no longer have internet service....


First, you have to directly attach to the cable modem whichever computer the instal tech used to establish your account. Make sure that connection works. Then re-insert the router and clone the MAC address of the instal computer to the router. Then check your DHCP settings. Make sure it's set to get a new IP from your new provider. You may then have to then release your IP and resubscribe.

.trouble with playstation 3 getting on line through router...


It looks like there are a lot of DNS servers that do not work correctly with the PS3. Below I will list a few DNS servers that do seem to work and you will need to manually configure the DNS settings for your PS3 to any of these addresses.

208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220

129.250.35.250
129.250.35.251
4.2.2.1
4.2.2.5

Static Ip with Speedstream 4200 Modem


I am assuming here with the way you have it set up your getting an internet connection.
what you saying i understsand mostly so i'll see if i can help you
first of all you have speedstreem modem that connects to you isp, this is assign your internet address from the isp if you paid for a static IP it would be in here, if not it's assiged by a dhcp from your isp company so if you if turn it off or have a power loss for anymore than 5-15min your ip changes.
now your modem then connects into your belkin router this as well as your modem it's prob set up as dhcp so it wants to issue each computer with an internal address of 192.168.0.X the reason for this is so it knows where to send the incomming information to what computer.
no matter what computer your using the address that goes over the internet will be the one assigned to modem from internet provider so if this need to be static IP to run your game server you will have contact your internet provider for an address.
but you may be confussing the issue a little, my suggestion to you would be:
1. go to your connections on each computer
2. right click on the lan connection choose properties
3. go to internet protocol (TCP/IP) then click properties
4. then click on obtain ip automatically and obtain dns automatically
this will remove the static windows address you may have put in.
try this and see if you can get you game or game server will work.
btw you may have to reboot your computers after this to get be sure to get the new address.

Im having a problum


Without being there to carefully look through the networking setup, I will speculate about this.

A simple thing to check is to see if the computer that is not seeing the net is set to DHCP, and that it properly sees the router to start with. Go through the network setup and compare it to the working computer.

Do the command for ipconfig at the system prompt. Use the /all switch to see that the IP address of the modem is displayed. You can compare this to the working computer.

Sometimes a conflict with the firewall can cause such problems.

Another suggestion is to check to see if your modem or internet service has MAC address filtering applied. Some internet services apply MAC address filtering because they want to charge a fee for each additional computer that is on their internet service.

There is no utility that comes natively with XP to monitor traffic on an ICS connected LAN. I assume you are not directly connected to the ICS computer, and are running through a Switch or Hub? And you do not have access to this to see how many lines are connected?

If this is the case, you can download and install a packet sniffer and place it within the LAN in front of the ICS computer. It will 'see' all packets traveling across the wire, and report the MAC addresses and IP Addresses to which they are bound. Since every NIC has a unique MAC address (and IP Address), you can see how many computers (NICs) there are in the LAN, and connected to the wire.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Packet_sniffer

Ethereal:

You can also use a utility like LanGuard Analyzer to search for all computers on the LAN:

http://www.gfi.com/lannetscan/

The last time I checked the trial version is fully operational for 30 days.. I use it in my Corporate LAN to monitor all 1000 computers in my domain.

One other thing to keep in mind, since ICS uses the Class C subnet (this cannot be changed), it has a limit of 254 clients that can be attached.. just an FYI..

Good luck!
