MY IPOD TOUCH SAYS THAT IT IS CONNECTED TO HOME WI-FI SERVER. THERE IS NO IP ADDRESS, SUBNET MASK NOR ROUTER NUMBER THAT SHOWS UP IN SETTINGS. SAFARI, ITUNES, AND APP STORE DOESN'T CONNECT. WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

possible cause is that ps3 uses an ip address leased from the wi fi router via its DHCP Server in Router. If PS3 was off for a while another computer on Wi FI network may have been assigned the IP address that the PS3 thinks it has.
Try page 29 of
on page 31 change the ip address setting to manual
set ip to 192.168.0.254 subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Now exit setup
Then go back into Setup
Change IP address setting to Auto
This will renew the ip address from the DHCP server to the ps3 hopefully allocating you a fresh IP address lease .
Future iOS update is going to address this ....in the meantime you need to prevent personal hotspot from assigning dchp automatically by doing the following....
Open "Settings" and tap "Wi-Fi", join the Personal Hotspot wi-fi network as usual
Now tap the "(i)" button to get more information on the network, make note of the network details under "IP Address", including the IP, subnet mask, router, and DNS
Now tap the "Static" tab and enter in an IP address higher in the range than what was set in the prior step, enter the router and subnet mask so it is the same, and set DNS (you may want to use 126.96.36.199 for Google's DNS servers, it's easy to remember and very fast)
You've just set a manual IP with DHCP, circumventing the DHCP servers automatic assignments which seem to be the source of the connection troubles. Exit out of Settings and enjoy Personal Hotspot as usual.
On a side note, you may be able to temporarily remedy the solution by renewing the DHCP lease or resetting network settings on the iOS device, but in our experience it will eventually suffer from the same dropped connection and packet loss. Thus you'll want to go with the static IP approach, it works.
Assume a router with a 192.168.1.1 IP address. If all your devices are have have the same 192.168.X prefix, and only the last value would change ie: 2, 4, 145, 210, etc. like 192.168.1.2, 192.168.1.4, 192.168.1.145, and so on.
If you have devices connected with IP addresses assigned to 192.168.2.X, the subnet would need to be:
Step one turn on PC directly connected to ModemsbSB6121 without Wi FI router being involved. Step two go to Command prompt type in ipconfig (press enter) Step three note IP address of default gateway and ip address issued to P.C.
Step four type in default gateway address into browser and log into Modem. Step five look for DHCP Server and allocate IP addresses from at least 50 for example 192.168.0.50 starting ip lease ending ip lease 192.168.0.254
Step six connect Wi Router to P.C. via ethernet cable only - remove ModemSB6121
Step Seven shutdown and restart p.c
Step Eight go to Command prompt type in ipconfig (press enter) Step Nine note IP address of default gateway and ip address issued to P.C. Step Ten type in default gateway address into browser and log into Wi Fi Router
Step Eleven Change IP address on Router to 2 as example 192.168.0.2. (it has to match in that modem device would have been 192,168.0.1)
(if it was 10.0.0.1 make wi fi 10.0.0.2 make sure subnet mask is the same like 255.255.255.0) Step twelve Change DHCP Server to off Step Thirteen may need to set default gateway to MODEM IP address for example 192.168.0.1 Step Fourteen plug modem router into Wi Fi router may need to plug into WAN port on WI FI router . Step Fifteen shutdown and Restart Computer Step Sixteen go to Command prompt type in ipconfig (press enter) Step Seventeen type in PING 192.168.0.1 (if this is modem IP address and default gateway IP addess)
All this above is to avoid IP address conflicts or mismatching
Subnet mask should be 255.255.255.0
either it uses 192.168.0.1 or it uses 10.0.0.1 make sure Wi FI router is set to different address to Modem Router.
I suspect either a clash occurs or your P.C gets a different IP range from ther WI FI DHCP server.
Happy troubleshooting !
If you are in a network, you need to have a thing called IP address which is usually assigned by a DHCP server or a wireless access point.If DHCP Server is not available in your case then you need to configure evreything manually.If DHCP server is available then you don't need to configure anything.Just search for the WI_FI signal and connect with it.
For manually configuring Wireless Network Setting
Go to control panel and click "network and Sharing Center", click Change Adapter settings" Right Click on the wireless adapter, Select "properties", click on "Internet Protocol version 4(TCP/IPv4)".
Select now use the followinf IP address,
Manually fill the IP address : Subnet mask : Default Gateway:
Select "Use the following DNS address "
Manually fill Preferred DNS address: Alternate DNS address:
For example : IP address : 192.168.0.10 Subnet mask : 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway :192.168.0 1
Preferred DNS address :188.8.131.52 Alternate DNS address :184.108.40.206
IP address is needed for communications between devices. subnet mask is needed for identifying your Network Address Node. Default Gateway is usually your Router or Wi-Fi access point IP Address.
DNS address for resolving domain name(mostly for Internet browsing)
Forgive me if you know this already IP address needs to be different to the Apple one. If the Apple one is 192.168.0.1 make the Samsung 192.168.0.2. subnet 255.255.255.0. Gateway should be the same as the apple number.. DNS can be left to automatic but if stuck use 220.127.116.11. Check the security settings on both the Apple and the Samsung are set to the same type
netgear support software could be bad. The ipod might not be able to read signal. umm try restoring the ipod. then plug it to your computer let it recognize it and then before you add ANYTHING to it, go straight to the setting and put in the router number and everythign and see if it works. I know people hate it but restoring it usually works. Its just simple small virus's that hit your ipod through songs and stuff and it eventually makes everything stop working. So get back at me let me know if restoring it worked.
