How do i change my ip adress on netbook


First you can find your internal ip address of your netbook by using these following steps

Goto START> RUN> Type CMD> Command prompt open here Type " ipconfig/all "

You can change your internal ip address
Again go to command prompt
  1. Type "ipconfig /release" (without the quotes, on the command line by itself).
  2. Type "ipconfig /renew" (without the quotes, on the command line by itself).
If you want to know your external ip address Just visit the site Ip-Details.com
your external ip address assign by your internet service provider. if you want to change this do the following procedure
  1. Log into the router's admin console. (Often http://192.168.1.1/)
  2. Release the IP address. (Method varies by router manufacturer)
  3. Turn off router, ethernet hubs/switches, and the cable/DSL modem.
  4. Leave off overnight.
  5. Turn everything back on.

I need internet on my dsi


Well, have you done the homework?

1. DSI needs WiFi, ie, wireless internet. Do you have a wireless router or wireless modem router in your place?
2. If yes, have you enabled the wireless radio in the router. This can be done by opening up the router options by typing the IP Address of the router (it should be somewhere written in the router itself) and login. If you don't know the password, google your model number and you will get all information like default ip address, login etc. If possible download the manual from the manufacturer website and go through it to familiarize the options. (If you have an apple router, you will need "airport utility"..google).
3. Once logged in as "admin", look for "wireless" options (Manual will help you), enable "radio", "ssid", note down the ssid name, and for troubleshooting purposes, leave the security "off/disabled". Save/apply changes.
4. Make sure wireless "G" is selected or a mode thats compatible with wireless "G" (go through the options, mostly default option will suffice). If this is in another page, again, save or apply changes.
5. Reboot the router, wait for a couple of minutes till the lights for internet and wireless appears.
6. From DSI, search for available networks, find the ssid name that you have noted down and click connect.
7. Hopefully, it should connect, otherwise, you may have to manually enter DSI IP Adress, subnet mask (255.255.255.0), gateway and dns servers (both router IP Adress). If your router address is, say 192.168.1.1, then give dsi an ip adress 192.168.1.xx where xx is a number between 2 and 255. That is, what ever ur router ip address is, just change the last digits to anything under 255, excluding the router address. Now try again, hopefully everything should be settled.
8. Look into DSI manual to see whether it supports wpa/wpa2 security or just WEP. You may also have to take into consideration any other devices that connect to router wirelessy, like laptops, smart phones, tablets etc. If all of them supports wpa/wpa2, go back to router options and select that security, create password, write it down. Otherwise select "WEP" encrryption. (The point to remember here is the lowest common denominator, ie, if DSI supports only WEP, selecting WPA/WPA2 will be useless, as DSI will not connect, even if it sees the SSID.
9. Save changes, reboot router, wait for lights to steady.
10. From DSI, again select your SSID name from available networks (just to make things easier, shut down DSI, restart to disconnect earlier connections), it will ask for password or both password and security type. If DSi supports WPA/WPA2, and ur security is set as such, and DSI is not connecting, play with the options, if any, like "WPA only", WPA2 only" WPA/WPA2" and try to connect.

You should succeed with this much details. Good luck

Can't get windows xp home edition to recognize wireless printer, even after assigning printer TCP/IP address. Windows 7 computer prints to it, but the Windows XP computer can't even find the...


Hi!

You din't wrote what's the model of your printer, but I think we can find a solution:
1. Try to ping the IP adress you assigned to the printer. If that works, please download the latest drivers or installation software from the manufacturer of your printer (or second option use the installation disk that came with your printer). If it does not reply to ping, be sure the IP adress you assigned to the printer is in same range as the IP adresses on your network.
2. It is possible that the installation software itself manage to find the printer on the network, and that means the problem is solved
3. If not, install the printer as it is local attached (e.g USB or LPT port)
4. After installing as local printer, please go to printer proprieties, go to port, choose add a new port, choose standard tcp/ip port and write for the port the IP adress you assigned to the printer.
5. Apply changes and ...that's it.

Please let me know if it helped,

Good luck!

I accidently changed the ip adress for the router and i want to change it back any ideas?


What you can do is open the "Start" menu, go to "Run" or just the search box in Vista and Win7, type cmd

A black screen will appear. Next, type ipconfig
Scroll up to where you see "default gateway"

Type the IP from there into your browser, enter in the admin name and password when it asks you, then you can change the IP address back to whatever you want.

Revised IP address for Ricoh 2020d


Go to user tools counter. Go to settings. Go to interface. You should see the IP address settings window. Some Ricohs have auto DHCP. Usually I turn that on to get it to recognize your router. Make sure your gateway address is inserted as well.

I unpluged my remote camera monitoring system and it lost its ip adress


The IP address on your camera system is probably setup using DHCP. This means that the IP address it's given will change over time. There's an easy way to find it. Log into your router, and locate an option called "DHCP Clients Table". This will list every system on your network, and one of them has to be the camera system.
If your router does not have a HDCP clients table, then you'll have to either do a network scan using something like bluesportscanner, or nmap, or to log directly into the camera system using a serial cable or something similar.
Comment back with your specific camera system model number, and I can provide more assistance.

Print jobs are not getting queued.


This is late but most likely the IP address is set to DHCP or auto and the printer is changing the IP address.
You need to set it to manual, and set the IP address static.
Those machines will change the IP address by itself.
Sometime even when you have set it manually it will change back to auto.
