How to change the server aol to my google chrome on start up


Dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP) is a way to configure IP addresses and TCP/IP settings throughout your network.

The DHCP service is run on a machine with a static IP address so that the computers on the network can find it for automated configurations.

Setting the IP address on a Windows 2003 server is accomplished through the network configuration settings in Control Panel.

Click the Windows "Start" button and select "Control Panel." Double-click "Network Connections." In this section, double-click "LAN Connection."

This opens the configuration tool to set the IP address of the server.

Select "TCP/IP" from the list of configured network applications and click the "Properties" button. This opens a new configuration window.

Select "Use the following IP address" to set a static IP for the server.
Enter the IP address chosen for the server in the first textbox that is activated.

Enter the subnet mask and default gateway for the server.
The default gateway is usually the router on the local network or the DSL or cable modem on a small, home network.

Enter the DNS server address.
The DNS servers are separate servers on the network.

For small, home networks, the DNS server is provided by your service provider.

Click the "Ok" button to save the settings. Click "Ok" again at the general LAN properties window.

Renew settings on local computers. Computers that use the DHCP server for configuration need to be rebooted.

You can also use the DOS command prompt to renew settings.
The "ipconfig -renew" command refreshes the settings on client computers on the network.

or for home page browser

Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help

Internet Connection Basics


Modern high-speed internet connections are made using DSL or cable modems. In general, most DSL modems also act as routers, but not too many cable modems act like a router.

Some internet connection basics: Every device connected to the internet has an IP (Internet Protocol) address. The address consists of 4 groups of up to 3 numbers each. They would look like this: 123.111.36.145 (0 is the smallest number and 255 is the largest you will see). When you connect to the internet, you are assigned an IP address by your ISP (Internet Service Provider). When you hook up your computer
to the modem, the signal is passed through the device to your computer and the device's IP address becomes your address. This is not secure, as the "bad guys" could type your IP address into their machine and theoretically see your computer and access all your data.

Connecting with your modem: Modems come with a CD nowadays. Running the setup CD makes connecting quite easy. With a DSL modem, you normally have to provide a username and password to log on. Cable modems generally rely on the cable connection to your house to recognize who you are and when you run the setup CD, you are automatically connected.

The router: The purpose of this device is twofold--one is to take the signal you get from your ISP and send it to a number of computers in your home network. The second purpose is to take the IP address and send it to a different address on each computer. This acts as a "firewall" in that the IP address assigned to your computer is no longer the address of the computer. Those bad guys trying to hack into your system will have a much more difficult time.

Types of routers: There are wired routers capable only of hooking up computers with ethernet cable within a network. There are wireless routers--normally these have 4 wired ports and a set of antennas. These function will in a mixed environment of wired and wireless computers. Most people these days are using wireless routers.

In my next tip, I'll describe how you go about hooking up your new router to an existing internet connection.

I have a Zhone ADSL2+ 4 Port Wireless Bridge/Router, model number 1518-A1-UK-0MA. it as working perfectly until one day when i turned it ON, only the ADSL LED is lit, no other LEDs are on, nor the power...


Please use the following steps:
1. Remove the router and connect it directly from the pc to the modem.
2. Power cycle: turn the modem off and then the computer for 30 seconds, then turn them both back on, modem first.
3. Check you internet connection to see if it working.
4. If it working, connect the router back up. If it not working contact your ISP for dsl support.
5. Once the router is connected, release/renew the ip address. Go to the dos command type ipconfig/release press enter. Then type ipconfig/renew. Check your ip address, you shouldn't get an ip address starting with 169. If you do, this mean you have a problem with the router getting an ip address.
6. Check you internet connection after the release/renew

How do i hook up my router?


There are several ways to do this, depending on how your network is configured.

Generally, if you have only one router - you connect the network jack of your cable modem or DSL modem to the WAN ("wide area network" or "internet") jack of the router with a CAT 5 network cable or jumper. Each computer's network jack would be connected to one of the router's (4) LAN ("local area network" or "home network") jacks labeled 1, 2, 3, & 4.

steve_con_12.jpg
In the picture above, the left most jack (WAN) of the router connects to the cable or DSL modem. The "LAN" jacks labeled "1, 2, 3 & 4" connect to each computer's network jack in your home.

The above would change if you are simply adding this router to extend an existing network. You'd likely be using this router as a switch, and leaving the routing duties to the main router. Over simplified, all the CAT 5 network cables would be connected to the 4 LAN jacks. There would be no connection to the router's WAN jack because the output of the first router provides only private IP addresses used in YOUR location. The internet IP address from your ISP is used only at the first router so that your entire home has the single IP address. The WAN jack is for internet addresses only - and the LAN jacks are for local / private addresses in your home only.

Have a look at the LinkSys web site for help configuring your particular model router, or reply with the model and version here.

I hope this helps & good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks!

My acer aspire 5630 will no make the connection to the internet using the wireless. if i hook it up hard wired it works fine. I also tried a USB wireless but it would not make the connection that way...


Try to release and renew the IP address:
  1. Click the Start menu button on the Windows taskbar.

  2. Click Run... on this menu.

  3. If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'cmd' (without the quotes) in the text box that appears. A command prompt window appears on the screen.

  4. Type 'ipconfig' (without the quotes) to view the status of the computer's IP address(es).

  5. If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'ipconfig /release' to let go of the address.

  6. Type 'ipconfig /renew' to obtain a new IP address (whether or not the computer is holding a current address).
Tips:
  1. If it is not necessary to view the current IP addresses on a computer, simply type 'ipconfig /release' or 'ipconfig /renew' (without the quotes) in the text box that appears in Step 3.

  2. To bring a computer back onto the network after moving it to a different location, or experiencing an unexpected outage, first release, then renew the IP address. Computers on DHCP networks often (but not always) re-establish network connectivity automatically.

Every time I run the DSL-504 ADSL2 Ethernet Router CD disc to setup my internet connection, always get the dslultility.exe message say "modam not deteched....." but everything is...


To release and renew IP address, go to Start > Run. Type in CMD and press Enter. At the prompt, type in ipconfig and press Enter. This will display the adapter information such as IP address, Subnet mask, and default gateway.

To view additional information such as Mac address, DNS servers, etc, type in ipconfig /all.

To release IP address, type ipconfig /release.

To renew IP address, type ipconfig /renew.

If you are not able to get an IP address try setting one statically:

Windows 2000

Step 1 Right-click on My Network Places and select Properties.

Step 2 Right-click on the Local Area Connection which represents your network card and select Properties.

Step 3 Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click Properties. Enter your IP information for your network.

If connecting to a router, make sure the default gateway and a DNS server is the IP address of the router (192.168.0.1).

Windows XP

Step 4 Click on Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet Connections > Network connections.

Step 5 See Step 2 for Windows 2000 and continue from there.

click internet protocol on the list and then properites.
click on "use the following ip"
and on the three text boxes below type the same settings as the ones that appear on the pc that you did ipconfig /all. the only differnt will be the ip address. if the pc is 192.168.0.105 you should put 192.168.0.106 or something else.

No wireless


you have to renew the ip address.the easiest way to do this is restart the computer then try entering your net key.ALSO if you use a standard ethernet cable the computer may be trying to connect to the internet through that.what you want to do is disable the LAN connection in your network connections window and right click on the wireless connection icon and click REPAIR,this will renew your IP address also.If you do not know how to get to these settings go to START/ CONTROL PANEL/NETWORK CONNECTIONS then right click on your wireless connection then click repair.While your in that same window you can right click the LAN connection and disable it.To enable it simply right click the icon again and click enable.
