Question about SMC Barricade g SMC2804WBRP-G Wireless Router
First of all sorry if i dont use correct technical terms but im not all that good with this stuff. I have an SMC router connected to our main desktop computer which has the direct access to the internet thru a Cable modem. the desktop computer connects to the internet with no problems. we also have 2 laptops in the family which could connect to the internet through wireless connection with no problem up until a few days ago. I thought the trouble was with my Dell Inspiron 6400 but seeing as my sisters laptop doesnt connect either... i figured it was the router. ive tried connectiong my laptop to the router directly with a network cable and that doesnt work either, although if i unplug the desktop computer from the router, my laptop works! it seems as if there can only be 1 computer working with the internet at a time and its REALLY frustrating! can anyone PLEASE help me! Im desperate!! James
It may be that the router is not assigning ip addreses properly, and is duplicating the ip address on all pc's. or you have done the windows diagnose and repair or detect problems. Go to the properties of each wireless card in control panel>network connections and on the TCP/IP line click propertes again and ensure obtain ip address automatically is checked. Also go into the routers settings and ensure DHCP is enabled to give all pc's an automatic ip address. Restart all pc's and your router (not Reset) and you should get renewed ip addresses and be able to connect.
