HI,

Eventhough you provide static IP, be sure that you have the correct Gateway IP, ie, the gateway you get when you set DHCP, adn also DNS, somtimes when dont set the DNS, you wont able to go online..

So please make sure that you set proper Gateway and DNS address and you would be able to go only..You can know the DNS and default gateway by changing to DHCP an typing ipconfig/all from START->RUN cmd

Please leave me comment, if you have doubt or PLease rate this solution

I have jus bought a toshiba satelite c655 model laptop and i am not able to access the internet. What can i do?


I suppose you "simply" needs to configure your network settings.
Check on google for some tutorials.
This one looks fine: http://www.home-network-help.com/configuring-ip.html

Try to set it up in DHCP mode (Obtain an IP address automatically). If it does not work in DHCP, you will need to know which IPs you have to enter in the Windows configuration.
Also, in a small business or a home installation, you could use the same settings as the ones from an other working computer. Just choose a different arbitrary value for the last digit of the "IP address" (two computers should not have exactly the same IP address).

Try to tell us more informations: are you using a wireless connection ? the connection is from a home or professionnal installation ?

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.

IP conflict on my home network


Hi.
If there is an IP conflict, that means that two different devices connected to your home router are getting the same IP. In this case one or more connected devices will have limited connectivity, as they will be unable to access network resources.


The following troubleshooting must be performed on one networked device at the time.

Check if the internet provider that you are using allows DHCP. Most broadband providers use DHCP.

DHCP (dynamic host control protocol) means that the IPs, instead of being static are being assigned each time by the router.

If you use DHCP, then ensure that all devices connected to the network are not set on Static IP. If there is a device that must be set on static (eg. a network printer), then change manually the device IP to a different one. Ensure that the new IP belongs to your network range.

Reset the network settings on all connected devices. On computers remove the network adapter from the installed hardware devices list in control panel.
Restart computers one by one, after removing the adapter, and allow the network card to reinstall, using driver disk when needed (ensure that you have the drivers first). It will set itself to DHCP by default.

If that does not work, then you can try changing MAC address on Windows. The MAC address is an unique identifier that is assigned by manufacturer to any Ethernet adapter. The MAC address is used by the router to determine IP. To this purpose see: Changing MAC addresses on Windows .

If still no luck , then the next step would be resetting and re-configuring the router again, using the settings given by your ISP. Ensure that you have your Internet Service Provider configuration settings before resetting the router

At this point it may be worth testing a different Ethernet adapter (eg an USB adapter), rather than resetting the router.

If all that does not work, then either the router, or one of the two network adapter is probably defective. In some case virus or malaware can also cause IP conflicts.In that case ensure that the computer is clean, and eventually replace the router, after testing PC network adapter.

Note:If your home LAN uses static settings instead of DHCP, simply check that the IP set for each device is different.

Regards.

Major wireless problems.. I can connect to my wireless router (Thomson 585v8) but i cant connect to the internet. When it connects it says local only. How do i fix it so i can go on the internet..??


check if the ip address that you are getting begins with 192.169.x.x ( x = any number between 1 to 254) check that your router the DHCP service is enable and that there a network range set (example lets say your gateway ip is 192.158.0.1 then your dhcp by defult in most cases will look like this ip range 192.168.0.2 - 192.168.0.254 using a netmask of 255.255.255.0 that will give you 254 ips per network.)

if your ip start with 192.169.x.x the that means that your machine is not getting a real ip assigned to it all you get is an APIPA that is just a reseved ip by the system to fill out ethernet interfaces that don't have and static ip or are in a network without a DHCP server.

you can set a static ip in the client pc if you don't want to enable DHCP in the router.

when you see Local Only message it means that your pc hasn't detected a route to the outside network ( internet ) without a proper gateway you will not be able to get to the internet, your router ip is always your gateway.

example:

Router Client pc

IP 192,168.0.1 IP 192.168.0.2
subnet mask 255.255.255.0 subnet mask 255.255.255.0
default gateway 192.168.0.1

Where would i find the static ip adress


Static Ips are the ones that you yourself will define in your every computer in your network. Also, you need to configure your router to use static IP. So, 2 things to remember.

Setting your router for Static IP.
  1. Open your router web interface at http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 (depending on your router model)
  2. Disable the DHCP server by un-checking this DHCP option.
  3. Save your changed settings.
Configuring Static IP of computers.(This applies to MS Windows XP only)
  1. Click Start => Settings => Network Connections
  2. Right click on your LAN Connection and click "Properties".
  3. On the General Tab, scroll down to TCP/IP, Click on it to select and click the "Properties" button.
  4. Make sure that you ticked the option button: "Use the following IP Address" and you need to define the IP.

How to open the key ports for windows XP professional


You have probably set up your system to use DHCP - that is non-static IPs.

Right Click on your connection, go to properties, click IPv4, properties again
if it says get settings automatically then you are using dynamic IP addressing DHCP... this can cause problems,

To set up your Static IP on your computer
you will need your routers default gateway
you get that by typing ipconfig at the command prompt... found under Start menu ->Accessories, Command Prompt

Type in IPconfig
look for default gateway - write it down.
Go to your ISPs web site and see if you can find their DNS server IP addresses -or search under google - as a last resort use these

62.24.199.13
62.24.199.23

All DNS servers are public and free to use.

Then enter your Static IP which is derived from your default gateway. So if your default gateway is 192.168.1.1 then your IP can be anything between
192.168.1.2 and 92.168.1.254
Subnet = 255.255.255.0
Enter your default gateway
Enter your DNS server IPs and you should be good to go....

Remember if it all goes horribly wrong for some reason (It shouldn't) then just return and reset everything to get settings to automatic and all will return unrtil another solution is discovered.

Dlink DIR-655 not accessable after 24 hours


U have to tell me whether u have to unplug machines or the router
If that's the case dhcp for ur router is assigned from some other place. Weird. U have to enable dhcp of ur router. Don't allow running another dhcp from ur local systems only if it is a must. WHEN U CONFIGURE THE ROUTER'S DHCP, MAKE SURE TO SET THE LEASE TO A MAXIMUM VALUE SO THAT IT WANT CHANGE THE IP ADDRESSES FOR MACHINES.
If u assign static ips u have assign the dns and also the default gateway
Type ipconfig /all in a comand prompt and check the settings and set appropriately
Remember, don't allow any other source to assign dhcp for the router.

If this solution works for U please rate the answer
Thanks
Best of Luck

IP camera keeps resets itself


Hi

I have a pretty good knowledge of these cameras as I have 5 around my house.....

IP address resets are likely caused by the default address being loaded (192.168.0.99) and the box is not checked to reset the IP on reboot. You have two options.....

Using IP surveillence, open the camera settings. You will be prompted that the recording will stop, just press OK. Once you get to the settings window, you should see your list of cameras and the config screen for the one that is highlighted. Pick the camera you want to change the setting for and go to the tab where you can assign the IP address and gateway. Type in the IP address you want it to use. Uncheck the box that says 'reset IP on reboot'. That box is at the top. Hit apply. Once you do that, cycle the power on the unit leaving it off for at least 10 seconds. When the camera reboots, type in the new IP and you should be able to view it. (sometimes the camera will default on that IP if your router is using 192.168.0.1 and DHCP for computers that has that IP in it's range of assignments of IPs. Telling the camera which one to use and telling it to not reset on reboot will make the new IP stay in the camera.)

Your second option is to use the Installation Wizard or IE, find the camera either by typing in the IP for the camera in IE with the http:// or linking to the device with the installation wizard. If you follow the same procedure of assigning the IP and unchecking the box on reboot like described earlier, this should cure your problem. You do NOT want the IP resetting on reboot unless the camera will not link to your home router (likely causes for this is the IP range the router uses, say 192.168.1.1 like most belkin or linksys routers use, does not cover the IP range of the camera in it's DHCP server.

What I found best was to buy a junk router, set it's DHCP IP range to cover 192.168.0.99, set the camera, save it, kill the cameras power, connect it to the router you plan to use, then start the camera back up. Make sure whatever IP address you use on the camera is one covered by the DHCP server list on the router. ie: camera is set to 192.168.2.2 and the router assigns IPs from 192.168.2.2 through192.168.2.254. If your router only assigns IPS from 192.168.2.100 through 192.168.2.200 and the IP on the camera is 192.168.2.2, you won't be able to connect to it.

Hope this helps
