Question about Averatec 6200H Notebook

6 Answers

How do you repair an IP address conflict? I have a wireless network system in my house along with a wireless printer. The IP address on the printer keeps changing and we're either loosing our connection to the internet while we're on or can't get on at all without going through the whole repair process for the wireless connection. Yet the signal strength is usually excellent. I do not have a secure network. I didn't know how to set it up.

First off you need to SECURE YOUR NETWORK!!! An open network could allow people in your neighborhood to gain entry into your personal files and use your IP Address to look at things on the web that could get you in trouble. Everything they look at will appear you were looking at it. Most routers use the IP address of 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 for the router control panel. So try one of those using windows explorer with a computer on your network. A screen will come up that will ask for a user name and password. The default password is usually "admin" but you may need to check your manual for the router if that does not work. Then you need to set up the WEP security for the router. Then you will need up password (use 128bit it is a 26 letter/number password and more secure) that each computer will need to use to connect to the router. After you create a password(don't forget it) and save the settings in the router the computers will no longer connect until the password has been entered. Usually if you have windows detect the network it will ask you for the password and once you have entered it you should be able to connect the next time without having to re-enter the password. Once you have fixed this we can try and figure out what is going on with the printer.

1. Secure network is easy to setup. Just get to your routers admin access (type your IP into the address bar of firefox or internet explorer) Your IP is usually going to be 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.2.1or 192.168.1.1. Then just look around for your WEP or WPA security settings

2. Since your printer's IP is dynamic (changes), then you should set your computer as a static IP.

Here are the instructions to change your IP to static:

For Vista

For XP

When you change your IP to a static one, you are basically holding that as a "bookmark" and your printer cannot acquire that IP. Therefore, no more IP conflict issues. : )

Let me know how it works for you

It is your wireless router that assigns IP adresses so the problem lies there. You should have a user manual which will show you how to assign a permanent adress to the printer or any other wireless device on your network.

You can't blame the printer.

Set a static IP address on the wireless router and on the computer. You have to make sure that both IP Addresses are on the same range.

You need to contact the tech support of the router to set a static IP address on the router.

On your computer, follow the steps below:

For Windows XP

1. Go to the Control Panel > set it to Classic View
2. Open Network and Internet or Network Connections
3. Right-click the Wireless Network Connection or WLAN > Properties
4. Locate and double-click the 'Internet protocol TCP/IP'
5. Click on the radio button 'use the following IP Address'
6. Set the IP address that you want.

For example, the router's IP is 192.168.1.1, you can set 192.168.1.250 on your computer. You have to make sure that the last group of digits are away from the last digits of the router. Because if the last digit of the router is .1, it would give .2, .3, .4 to the other wireless devices that would connect to it. Now, if you use .250, it's far away from the free addresses that the router gives and you could be sure that there would be no IP Address conflict.

Have a great day!

Do this way..

Turn off your printer.. on your computer, click start - run -- cmd - type ipconfig /all -- note down the ip address, subnet mask,default gateway, DNS server.

click start - run -- type ncpa.cpl - right click local area connection - click on properties - choose TCP/IP - click properties - choose the option type IP address manually and enter everything to the proper place you noted earlier -- click Ok.

this wont let your printer conflict with the internet connection.

You can assign the xxx number as you wanted if your printer is wireless. For example your Lap top wireless is 10.0.0.3 then set your IP address for your printer is 10.0.0.xxx ( 10.0.0.9) The xxx number can't be the same with any number for any other lap top you have around the house. You can right click on Printer property to go to add Port and put this number in.

Where is IP address for the MFC-7220 printer


Network printers do not have a set IP address, you need to configure the printer with an IP address that uses the same range of IP addresses as your network.
The IP configuration is normally done through the printer's Menu on the printer's buttons.
If your are using a network IP range 192.168.0.*** that your wireless router issues automatically then select a fixed IP address on your printer above the number of computers that is installed on your network. (ie if you have 10 computers the make the printer's fixed IP address say 192.168.0.30) so the wireless router cannot issue a conflicting IP address.
When you install the printer driver on each computer then go to the Printer Properties - Port tab - click Add Port - IP port and enter the printer's fixed IP address and printer name.
Do a test print to check if your computer connects to the network printer.

IP Conflicts in a work place


An IP address conflict occurs when two computers on a LAN or the Internet have been assigned the same IP. IP conflicts between two computers normally render either one or both of them unusable for network operations.

How IP Address Conflicts Happen

Two computers can acquire conflicting IP addresses in any of several ways:

· A system administrator assigns two computers on the LAN the same Static IP Address.

· A system administrator assigns a computer a static IP address within the local network's DHCP range (dynamic IP range), and the same address is automatically assigned by the LAN DHCP server.

· A malfunction in the network's DHCP server allows the same dynamic address to automatically be assigned to multiple computers.

· An ISP accidentally assigns two customers the same IP address (either statically or dynamically).

· A mobile computer is put into standby / hibernate mode and then awakened later.

Note that other forms of IP conflicts can also occur on a network. For example, one computer may experience an IP address conflict with itself if that computer is configured with multiple Network Adapters. System administrators may also create IP conflicts by accidentally connecting two ports of a network switch or router to each other.

Recognizing IP Address Conflicts

On most Microsoft Windows computers, if you attempt to set a fixed (static) IP address that is already active on the local network, you will receive the following pop-up error message:

The static IP address that was just configured is already in use on the network. Please reconfigure a different IP address.

On newer Microsoft Windows computers having dynamic IP conflicts, you should receive a balloon error message in the Taskbar as soon as the operating system detects the issue:

There is an IP address conflict with another system on the network.

Sometimes, especially on older Windows computers, a message similar to the following may instead appear in a pop-up window:

The system has detected a conflict for IP address...

On Mac or Linux computers, a similar message will normally appear on screen.

Resolving IP Address Conflicts

Try the following remedies for IP conflicts:

1. For networks where IP addresses are fixed (statically assigned), ensure each local host is configured with a unique IP address.

2. If your computer has a dynamically assigned address, releasing and renewing its IP address can workaround IP address conflicts.
3. If your home router is believed to have a faulty DHCP server causing IP conflicts on the home network, upgrading the router firmware may resolve this problem.

Wireless printer configura


These instructions generally apply to all networkprinters with built-in network cards (print servers) such as HP LaserJetprinters, IBM Infoprint laser printers etc.This example is for a network HP LaserJet printer.To install a HP printer (with built-in Jetdirect printserver) as a network printer you need to do the following -
1. Open the printer's menu and enablethe Network Card - these print servers use a static IP address therefore,configure the IP address of the network card so it matches the IP range of yournetwork. Eg. If your IP's are 192.168.0.*** then set the network card to a highnumber say 100. (This is to prevent a conflict with the router issuing the sameIP address to a computer on your network). Then set the Subnet Mask IP address to 255.255.255.0 If you have a wireless router then check the IPaddress range that the router issues to the computers on your network andconfigure the static IP address in the printer's network configurationaccordingly.
2. Install the HP printer driver onyour computer/s using the LPT printer port.
3. Connect the printer with a LAN cableto the network hub/router.
4. Click on Printers and Faxes - rightclick on the HP printer and click on Properties.
5. Click on Ports and click on AddPort.
6. In available ports - click onStandard TCP/IP Port and then Configure port.
7. Tick the IP box and type in the IPaddress of the HP's printer IP address.
8. Click OK and tick Enablebi-directional support and then OK
9. Remove the printer cable, then do a test print to see if the printerprints correctly.
Install the HP printer driver on every computer on your network and configurethe printer's TCP/IP port as previously detailed.Do a test print page to check the printer.
You can now print from any computer on your network.

I just configured my MFC 490cw for wireless printing. It works but now I have IP address conflicts across all computers XP & Windows 7) and X-box in the house. If I turn the printer off, the network...


When configuring an address for the printer, the IP configuration might look like (just an example):

IP Address - 192.168.1.2

Subnet Mask - 255.255.255.0

Default Gateway - 192.168.1.1

It's important to note that even though you are not using any IP addresses in the default range for DHCP, the Subnet Mask and Default Gateway addresses will be THE SAME.

If you have another device on your network that will be assign a fixed address, you would use for example:

IP Address - 192.168.1.3

Subnet Mask - 255.255.255.0

Default Gateway - 192.168.1.1

For any other devices, just increment the IP address by one, 192.168.1.4, 192.168.1.5, etc and use the same Subnet Mask and Default Gateway.
(see the owners manual or site for steps on configuraing the printer TCP/IP information). This should take care of any conflicts.

Computer disconnects when I switch printer on


Sounds like an IP address conflict. Here's what's happening...

An IP address is like an address on your house. It is specific to your street. You will not see another house on your street with the same numbers on your house. Same applies here. Only one IP address can be used per device on the network. So, lets say your printer has a static IP address of 192.168.1.2, that is set internally through the settings menu. A static IP address is one that the printer will always use. When your printer is turned off, it is not occupying that IP address. So when you turn your computer on, your computer is using 192.168.1.2, which it gets automatically from your router. It takes this address because your printer is not using it, because it is turned off. When you turn your printer on, it steals your computer's IP address because the printer is set up to only use that IP address, leaving your computer disconnected, as it no longer has an address.

The way to resolve this issue is to change your printer settings. Instead of using 192.168.1.2, use 192.168.1.20, so that you can have 20 computers connected to your network at any given time without getting a conflict. You will have to set up your printer again through your computers in the house, but when you turn on your printer, you will not get disconnected again.

For support on your printer, you can go to the manufacturer's web site and click support. It will ask you for your model number. From here, you can look at the manual for your printer, and it will give you a step by step instruction on how to change the IP address.


NOTE: The IP address of 192.168.1.2 was used as an example and may not be the exact IP address of any of your devices. I would advise increasing the last number by 10. In this case, the last number is a 2, which we would change to 20. If your last number is 101, change it to 111.

Ip conflict after setting up dwl-g710, after setting up the extender i cannot access it because my pc reports an ip conflict, any suggestions would be appreaciated


Hi,

You will get an IP conflict if you have assigned the same IP address on your network devices. Every networking devices should have different network address or IP address. If for example the IP address of your router is 192.168.0.1, then your wireless expander can be configured as 192.168.0.2, 192.168.0.3, 192.168.0.4 and so on but not 192.168.0.1 since it is already being used by the router.

Hi,
Use either computer to login to the router eg 192.168.0.1 or just type www.routerlogin.com into the internet browser URL bar. Under LAN Setup, click LAN settings, and from the menu that comes up, turn DHCP Server 'on'. This will assign IP addresses for your computers automatically.

Hope this helps

PS Your router's 192.168... number might be different from my setup.. try 0.1 or 1.1 or 2.1 etc at the end, or just try that routerlogin method.

Hi,

Make sure you have any appropiate software installed and that you are using the correct wireless authentication method (WEP/WPA ect...)

Also check to make sure there is not IP Conflict between your PC and another wireless device on the network.

You can also try assiging your PC a IP Address to use within the gateway address, or set it to obtain it automatically.

exact instructions to do this all depend on your operating system and the wireless connection utility used.

Hope this helps
