Question about Routers
Hi, just stumbled upon you in a google search to reach d-link customer service...this is really cool! hopefully you can help... i've had this problem a couple times before, but forgot how to fix it. i just got a new computer, so i need to reconfigure my wireless set up so that the modem and router use different IP addresses. i believe at the moment they are sharing the same 22.214.171.124, so that the wireless connection is dodgy and breaks after about 20 mins or so. that said, it may break before i get your advice on how to fix problem. but i'm hoping for the best. i'm using a MacBook Pro with a dsl speedstream modem and dlink router. thanks!! sarah
You will need to disconnect the modem from the router.
Then you will need to connect your computer to the router using an ethernet cable. (plugging into one of the LAN ports)
Next you need to log into the router control panel and change the IP address there. If your modem is giving out IP addresses like 192.168.0.5 then you will need to change the 3rd octet on the router to an IP address like this: 192.168.47.1

"Static IP addressing is for one customer on one IP address and
Dynamic IP addressing assigns a different IP address each time the ISP
customer logs on to their computer, but this is dependent upon the
Internet Service Provider (ISP) because some ISP's only change the IP
address as they deem it necessary.
If you have Dynamic IP Addressing through your Website Host it means
that you are sharing an IP Address with several other customers.
If you are a beginner on the internet, an avid internet user, are
entertaining the thought of starting your own website business, are a
gamer, use VOIP or VPN there are several things you should know about IP
