My thinkpad keeps reverting back to an old IP

My thinkpad wireless connection keeps reverting back to an old IP address from an old router and disconnects from the internet as a result. Hitting "repair" works for awhile, but eventually it reverts back to my old trendnet router. I'm now using netgear

Keep the router to supply IP address using dhcp mode. Increase the lease time to 24 hours and don't forget to bind your device mac address with the dhcp IP in the router. This way it will always get the same ip from the router.

Limited connectivity
If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wirelessconnection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptopprobably did not get an IP address from the wireless router.
To fix this problem, right click on the wireless icon on the Task bar and thenclick Repair.
This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless cardon the laptop.

I changed my dlink dir-300 router's ip address to 192.168.0.2.now i cannot access the page.did i spoil it?what can i do now?can i reset it?will resetting it change d ip address back to 192.168.0.1 ?please...


Yes, resetting it will revert it back to factory settings (and therefore original IP address). Sometimes it is best to start over when something like this happens. ;)

Remember though, if you are configuring your router with a wireless connection you need to disconnect/reconnect to you wireless network (because you just changed it's address).

After shutting down ibm lenovo r61 wireless will not connect to router until doing repair. are there any settings to look for


The reason why you need to do a repair is because the wireless router couldn't issue the wireless a IP address to the laptop at the time of booting up. This is a common problem.
Check the signal strength of the wireless card, if it is in the mid range move the laptop or reposition the wireless router so you get a better signal strength.
Also power off the wireless router, wait 1/2 min and power up the router again. This is a suggestion, do this once a month. The wireless router will get a new IP address from your ISP, and if someone locks onto your old router's IP address then it is no longer available to them when the router gets a new IP address.

Can only connect 1 computer to router


You might need to check if your laptop is able to get a valid IP address when connected wirelessly to the router. You can go to the Control Panel then click on network connections and look for wireless network connection. Right click the wireless network connection then click properties. Click the support tab and there you will see the IP address. You should not be getting 169.254.x.x. Where X represents numbers.


An IP address is very important. Make sure you're getting a correct IP address and it should be the IP address provided by your router. Without a valid IP address, you won't be able to get onlinwe. Your wireless connection can tell you that its connected eventhough its not getting a valid IP address.

Belkin wireless router


Hi,

Your Belkin router is normally configured to get a dynamic IP Add from your Internet provider unless otherwise configured. Most ISP's network where clients/subscribers connect (through DSL) has a DHCP server that hands out this IP adds. If your router keeps on changing its WAN IP add, it may presumably be because:
1. Your router keeps on rebooting or powering on/off and everytime it turns on, it is given a new IP add;
2. Your ISP's DHCP server keeps on renewing its lease on the IP add given to your router.

Corrective measures would entail:
a. Do a full hard reset of your router and go through the installation setup again. Of course this would revert all settings/configuration to factory default; and/or
b. Contact your ISP and explain your concern.

In some cases, the router's MAC address has an issue that the ISP's DHCP is keeping a hard time recognizing it. this can be corrected with a firmware update.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things tunrs up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kin regards.
