Re: ip address

Don't rate me PERIOD for saying this (Unless it helps... Let's work through this FIRST before any rating.)


Which IP is it that you're trying to configure? Is it the WAN IP or are you trying to change your LAN IP?

If it is the WAN IP, I would certainly recommend leaving that on automatic settings as most ISP's assign IP's dynamically and can change from time to time.

If it is the LAN IP... Are you also making sure that your network adapter on the system you're connected by is in the same IP range and Subnet Mask? (If the IP range of the network adapter is different than the IP range of the router's LAN IP, you won't get any throughput.)

Also... When you say "won't accept the new IP address", are you saying that the router is still responding...but is somehow REJECTING the IP that you're giving it?

You have got to give us more details here. Give us a breakdown of what you did that landed you in the current situation. We honestly can't help you much if you don't.

I'll be watching this thread for your reply. If you give more detail, I will continue to assist you.

Again... Do NOT rate me badly OR good until we resolve your issue.

How do I set up the ecb350 as a repeater. I have an xfinity wifi that doesn't reach the whole house but I can connect with an Ethernet cable to the back of the ECB350 out in the area I need wifi acce

What are you using for your main router (xfinity wifi)? The best way is to set the ecb350 in AP Router Mode not a repeater since you have a rj45 cable long enough to go from one of the ports on the xfinity wifi router and hook it into the ecb350. You will need to know what your ip address range is for example if the xfinity is then you want to assign a static address for the ecb350 to be (assigned IP Address) You will also need the Subnet mask, Default Gateway IP Address, and Primary DNS and Secondary DNS of the xfinity wifi router. Then on the ecb350 you will need to configure the following with the info you go off the xfinity router:

Static IP Internet Connection Type Select Static IP to begin configuration of the Static IP connection. Account Name Leave Blank Domain Name Leave Blank MTU Auto IP Address ie: (assigned IP Address) IP Subnet Mask Specify the subnet mask of your Xfinity Router Gateway IP Address Specify the gateway of your Xfinity Router Primary DNS Specify the primary DNS server's IP address of your Xfinity Router Secondary DNS Specify the secondary DNS server's IP address of your Xfinity Router Discard Ping on WAN Check to Enable to recognize pings on the ECB350 WAN interface or Disable to block pings on the ECB350 WAN interface. Note: Pinging IP addresses is a common method used by hackers to test whether the IP address is valid. Blocking pings provides some extra security from hackers. Accept / Cancel Click Accept to confirm the changes or Cancel to cancel and return previous settings. Note: Clicking Accept does not apply the changes. To apply them, use Status > Save/Load Hope that this help you.

I have loaded the install. disc on a pc with the new router connected I have given it a new name and password. My lap top will not accept the same IP address as the PC . Can you asist me?

There is no way for two computers to have the same ip addresses. Try to check that laptop's ip address by clicking on START then type CMD on the search bar which will pull up command prompt then type "ipconfig" press ENTER it will give you lists of addresses like ip address, default gateway, etc...
Now, if the ip address shows 169.254.X.X it means that it is not getting any signal OR worse case scenario is, the network card is defective BUT!! if your computer is getting an ip address other than 169.254.X.X then it means that it just needs a little configuration...

>hope it helps... ?

I can't connect to the internet with my new computer. I bought a new computer. I can connect with my old computer but my new says limited connectivity. it is password protected and i entered the password...

Make sure your new computer is set to automaticly obtain ip settings.
If thats not the problem, I would turn off the wireless security for a moment and see if you can succesfully connect then.

I want to connect my Iphone to my wireless network..can I do that When I try to go on line with my Iphone it sees my local network but will not accept the password I have a wrt160n broadband cisco router

Hi there,

First of all you will have to configure your router to accept the iPhone. To do this you will need to go in to the router in your browser window and add your new device, it will ask you for your MAC number which can be found under the back cover of your iPhone or in your WIFI settings.

Then you will need to configure your router to either automatically assign an IP Address or use an allocated IP Address and use the same setting on your iPhone. Also, you will need to configure your router to either assign a DNS Server automatically or to use an allocated DNS Server and once again you will need to use the same settings on your iPhone.

Your IP Address is crucial in oreder for your iPhone to connect to your wireless network. Your DNS Server is crucial in order for your iPhone to access the internet through your wireless network.

Thank you for using FixYa! Have a great New Year and please remember to rate this solution.

Warm regards,

To configure it you can simply contect a pc to one of its rj45 port. it will give the pc an ip address in a default range. but the must have its network connection configured to receive ip automatically.

See the status of the pc LAN connection and note the gateway ip address. then type this ip in your explore address bar to access the configuration page / program of the router.

Hope that help.

Use the Default Reset button on the rear panel of the router. Use this method for cases when

Using the Reset button

To restore the factory default configuration settings without knowing the administration password

2. Release the Default Reset button and wait for the router to reboot.

How do I set a new address in the 850 motorola router

First, you ned to login into your router (check the manuals for this, Netgear has this printed behind the router near Serial no. etc).
Enable DHCP settings, allocate IP-address range say to (enough for 5 computers connecting via this router). Next, configure each computer to accept new IP-address from router by enabling DHCP.
The settings on a Windows XP Professional Desktop:
Need administrator access to your desktop, right-click on Network icon, Internet Protocol TCP/IP Properties, click on Properties button, then select Advanced properties, you can set DHCP from here.

It seems that you said your computer gets the ip address from your router,, which means thru DHCP of the router but if you look at the DHCP settings of your wireless card inside your computer ---the DHCP is OFF -- check your ipconfig/all command as shown in your problem too,,, your wless card does not accept the new IP which comes from your router --as DHCP is OFF on your wless card and sticks with the old ip address whereas the router maintains a new ip for your computer in its table and a mismatch occurs and you loose the internet connection ,,,,thats why repair works and then again the IP changes in the router for your computer and your computer's wless card lags behind and use the old ip adress ..... DHCP--- IS DYNAMIC , WHICH MEANS IT RENEWS THE IP address after some time and you computer gets stuck to the old one ,,, hence mismatch. "you make the DHCP -ON on your wless card too. it will be fine."
