Re: dhcp renew

What has happened is the dhcp ip address lease time as ran out, you should go into the routers settings (type in your web browser) and change the lease length, it should be set as infinite or the longest you can set it to. If unable to get into the router there should be a reset button.

When plugged directly into router works ok. when plugged into our work network it will work ok for a day or two or maybe more then drops out and does not work. The B is blue and network boxes are green but...

The router uses DHCP to get an IP-address from a DHCP-server on your work-network. Each IP-address is valid for 24 hours.
So, your router is not issuing "renew" requests, to be allowed to use the IP-address for the "next" 24 hours.

Also, check that the router's internal clock has the correct date/time.

DHCP Problems

Routers have a built in DHCP server to identify each computer connecting to it so traffic can be routed to the correct computer, if more than 1 computer/device shares the same IP you should get an IP conflict not a DHCP error. Routers also normally give out IP addresses from its pool of IP's sequentially and assigns it to expire in 24 hours, so if you reboot your router turn on 1 device grab an IP and then turn that device off, reboot your router and turn a different device on it will get the same IP, now when you turn the other device back on you have a conflict.
If your router has been reset you have to release and renew IP addresses on all your devices to prevent conflicts.

My ip address cant be renewed

Most likley one of these two.
  • DHCP isn't working on the router or device
  • Another device has the same IP
  • You have the device set to a static IP inside your DHCP range

Open a command prompt and type ipconfig /release
Wait about 6 minutes (typical leasing time is 5 minutes)
Type ipconfig /renew
If it still isin't working
Go into Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center > Network adapter on the left. Right click whichever adapter you are using (wired or wireless) select properties

Look for Internet Protocol v4 and select it and click properties.
IP address and DNS should both be on Obtain Auto.

Hi, I have at&t DSL using a westell modem and set up a wireless network using a D-link gamer lounge router. It seems to work most of the time but occassionally develops an IP conflict with my wife's...

For any network, you should have one DHCP server. If you try and have more than one DHCP server, it may still work if you have non-overlapping assigned ranges. Also, it sounds like you have more than one network - the network between your westell an your D-Link and between your D0Link and its clients. My belief is that both of those devices can run DHCP servers, firewalls, NAT and so forth, and if the laptop gets multiple responses it can use the wrong one.
One thing that you could do to make things simpler is to put your westell in bridge mode and that will insure you have only one DHCP server, NAT, etc - the one on your DGL-4300.
By "Entire system", do you mean the laptop?
Chances are you can tell windows to "repair" the adapter and it will (given encouragement) disable and reenable the adapter, renew the IP address and so forth. There are command line tools as well, open a cmd and type
ipconfig /renew
to get a new ip address and avoid the reboot.

I want to find out the dns code for my belkin56g

If the light is yellow then you are connected to your wireless network, but not connected to the internet, make sure that airport is configured ( configure IPv4) for DHCP under TCP/IP tab so you can get an IP address. Don't worry about DNS servers, they should be provided automatically once you have an IP address.
if the light is grey try Configure IPv4 just with DHCP, not with manual address, and click the renew DHCP Lease button

Cannot sustain network or internet connection

It is quite possible that your issue is due to the DHCP function of your router. I would check the DHCP settings and the lease time that is set. Its quite possible that the lease time is running out and its having difficulty renewing a new IP.

Internet connection fails very frequently!

I will try to see if I can Be of some help...But first I need to know who your ISP is. Also I note that you indicated that you try to renew and release you do not show DHCP connected. You should be doing release and then renew, I believe that's what you meant to say? Also please describe to me how you attempted to set up static IP.
Awaiting your info...!

Static DHCP

Step 1 Open your web browser and enter the IP address of your D-Link router ( Enter username (admin) and your password (blank by default). Step 2 Click on the Home tab and then click DHCP on the left column. Step 3 Under the Static DHCP section next to DHCP Client, select one of the DHCP clients from the list and click Clone. Step 4 Select Enabled and enter the IP address you would like this client to always obtain. Step 5 Verify that the Name and MAC Address fields have the correct Hostname and MAC address for the client and click Apply. If the Hostname or MAC address is not correct, Release and Renew the IP address on the client and then refresh the DHCP page.
