You may need to obtain a new DHCP address.

Try to right click on the network icon and choose repair.
If this fails you can force a new DHCP address with the following: (Windows users)
Step 1, Click Start
step 2, Click run
step 3, In the run box type cmd.exe and click OK
step 4, When the command prompt opens type the following.PRESS ENTER after each new line.
ipconfig /flushdns *Press enter *
ipconfig /release *Press enter *
ipconfig /renew *Press enter *
exit *press enter *

Good luck!
Hope this helps!

How can I make settings to support DHCP IP assignments and also recognize my manual IP's assigned to the LAN connected devices?


The easiest way I can think of is to shrink the DHCP address pool.

To do that, at least on the model of Actiontec router I have, click on "Network (Home/Office)" the go to the "IP Address Distribution" section of the screen. "DHCP Server" should already be selected, and under that, you'll find "Start IP addresses" and "End IP addresses." Usually, the start will be 192.168.1.2 and the end will be 192.168.1.254. What I usually do is change the start address to 192.168.1.200. That leaves over 50 addresses for normal wireless connections, and I'll general assign IP addresses from the rest of the range as follows:
192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.9: routers, APs, etc.
192.168.1.50 to 192.168.1.59: printers
192.168.1.100 to 192.168.1.109 for other static devices. (I often find that Blu-Ray players, cable boxes, etc. behave better if they have a static address.)

But really, on home network, I doubt you'll have more than 15 devices that need static addresses, so you could set the DHCP start address as low as 192.168.1.16 if you wanted to.

Network Connected Printer Not Printing


TCP/IP Lan
Network Printer...this does not apply to USB / Parallel Cable connected printers.

This is a brief explanation of why a network printer might not be printing; this is not a simple explanation. There are many variables, this is the most common.

This is one of the most common mistakes with Network printers.

A Network printer should bet set to a Static IP address (or fixed address)

Terms:
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) automates the assignment of IP addresses, subnet masks, default gateway, and other IP parameters.

Static IP addresses
When a computer / printer is configured to use the same IP address each time it powers up, this is known as a Static IP address.

Regardless if you printer is Wireless, or connected with a LAN cable to the Network.

The PC has a specific fixed location / address to find your printer; this was assigned when the printer was installed
(This can be found in the print driver under ports tab, something similar to 192.168.x.xxx, this is the IP address of the printer when it was installed)

If your printer is set to use DHCP, it will reassign a new address every time you reboot, shut down or there is a power loss.
(You might get lucky and it assigns the same address as previously assigned)

The PC will look to the address it was assigned at the time of the install and not the new reassigned address.
This assigned port in your printer driver is not capable of searching and updating the IP address of the Printer. This is not a Plug and Play item; it is not directly attached to the PC through Parallel Cable or USB.

If you reinstalled the printer after your system rebooted, you probably have the printer installed more than once. One works the other doesn’t! One has the correct address; the one that doesn’t work has the incorrect address.

If you do not set the printer to a static IP address this probably will happen again when it is restarted or there is a loss of power.


How to Fix this Problem:
1. Assign the printer with a Static IP address.
Read the manual specific to your machine, sometimes this can be found in the Set up Guide, or Administrators guide.
This setting can usually be found in the network settings of the printer.
You will also want to set the subnet mask, and the default gateway.
Which can be found using a PC? Click start, Run, type in CMD, and new black window will pop up, type ipconfig/all press enter, this will show all the network information you will need for this.

2. Making your PC communicate with Printer:
There are a few ways to do this, the easiest is to delete the old driver / printer and reinstall the driver. Most manufactures provide an automated click next type of install software. (Search their website for this)

You can also go into the printer ports of the driver and create a new port using standard TCP/IP port, and reassign to the new port.

A patch cable directly from your PC to Your printer will not work; it will work with a crossover cable and a few minor changes to the TCP/IP settings. (You might get lucky using DCHP on the PC Side)


There are several ways to Network a printer.

Printer connected to Router etc…

The other way is P2P, or a shared printer
The Printer is shared from a PC / Server, which the printer can be connected directly to the Sharing PC via Parallel Cable, USB, or Networked through a router as discussed above.

In this Shared connection an administrator has control over the printing abilities of others that are using the printer.
The down side to this type of connection: if that PC / Sever is not powered on, having printer connection problems, or not connected to the network. Any PC which is using this shared connection will not be able to print.

I hope this helps, if you need any further assistance, let me know.

What is the default ip address for powerconnect 5212


You must assign an IP address to the switch to gain management access over the network. You may also need to a establish a default gateway between the switch and management stations that exist on another network segment. You can statically configure a specific IP address or direct the switch to obtain an address from a Boot Protocol (BOOTP) or Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server when it is powered on. Valid IP addresses consist of four decimal numbers, 0 to 255, separated by periods. Anything outside this format is not accepted by the CLI program. notice.gif NOTICE: By default, the IP address is assigned to VLAN 1 through DHCP. If you select the bootp or dhcp option, IP is enabled but does not function until a BOOTP or DHCP reply has been received. Requests are broadcast periodically by the switch in an effort to learn its IP address. (BOOTP and DHCP values can include the IP address, default gateway, and subnet mask).
To display assigned IP settings using the CLI:
  1. From the Privileged Exec or Normal Exec level mode, type show ip interface and press <Enter>.

The assigned IP address and subnet mask displays.

  1. From the Privileged Exec mode, type show ip redirects to display the assigned gateway IP address. Press <Enter>.

The following example displays IP settings assigned by bootp or dhcp using the CLI.

Console#show ip interface

IP address and netmask: 10.1.0.1 255.255.252.0 on VLAN 1,

and address mode: User specified.

Console# show ip redirects

ip default gateway 10.1.0.254

Console#
Before you can assign a static IP address to the switch, you must obtain the following information from your network administrator:

  • IP address for the switch

  • Default gateway for the network

  • Network mask for the network

To assign a static IP address to the switch:
  1. From the Privileged Exec level global configuration mode prompt, type interface vlan 1 to access the interface-configuration mode. Press <Enter>.

  2. Type ip address ip-address netmask, where ip-address is the switch IP address and netmask is the network mask for the network.

  3. Type exit to return to the global configuration mode prompt. Press <Enter>.

  4. To set the IP address of the default gateway for the network to which the switch belongs, type ip default-gateway gateway, where gateway is the IP address of the default gateway. Press <Enter>.

  5. To save your configuration changes, type copy running-config startup-config and then press <Enter>.

notice.gif NOTICE: Only one VLAN can be assigned an IP address. If you assign an address to any other VLAN, the new address overrides the original IP address. The following example shows how to set a static IP address using the CLI.

Console(config)# interface vlan 1

Console(config-if)# ip address 192.168.1.5 255.255.255.0

Console(config-if)# exit

Console(config)# ip default-gateway 192.168.1.254

Console(config)#
To configure the switch for DHCP or BOOTP:

  1. From the Privileged Exec level global configuration mode prompt, type interface vlan 1 to access the interface-configuration mode. Press <Enter>.

  2. At the next prompt, use one of the following commands:

    • To obtain IP settings through DHCP, type ip address dhcp

    • To obtain IP setting through BOOTP, type ip address bootp

  3. Press <Enter>.

  4. To save your configuration changes, type copy running-config startup-config, and then press <Enter>.

How do i manually configure and ip address for the mitel 5224 ip phone?


Press and hold the up arrow.
Configure Phone - Yes
network parameters - yes
press no until you see "change" and press yes.
You will need to set the following appropriately.
IP address, Subnet address, default gateway, ICP controller address, TFTP address, VLAN ID, VLAN priority, DiffServe Value, DNS address.

Normally it is not necessary to set the phone static except for testing. If your network and DHCP server is set up properly, you are not gaining any benefit for setting it static.

Also, you should find out what the other IP addressess are that are static on the Voice subnet. Along with that, you will need to know the DHCP range. These are needed so you don't assign a duplicate IP address to your network. Assign the phone to the wrong device could do great harm to your network. Assign it to use the same IP address as the phone system and none of your phones will operate.

Use with caution,
Mark

I want to connect my SCX 4500w to a new network (wireless). when i try to use a web page to configure the printer settings it doesn't response... I check the IP and write in in my Internet Explorer,...


You could try having your Samsung SCX-4500 print out a network configuration sheet. It will have the printer's IP address, default gateway etc.:

1) Press the <Menu> button on your printer panel
2) Scroll using the (<) or (>) navigational arrows until "Network" is displayed
3) Press the <OK> button
4) Scroll using the (<) or (>) navigational arrows until "Network Info" is displayed
5) Press the <OK> button

Your printer should print out a network configuration sheet. The IP of the printer appears in the TCP/IP information on this configuration sheet.

Note: Your printer's IP assignment should be "Static" not "DHCP" (You may skip the following steps if your printer's IP assignment is already "Static")

To change your IP assignment from DHCP to Static:

1) Open up your Windows browser
2) Type in the printer's IP address in the address (location) bar of your browser:

Example: http://192.160.0.100 (use the real IP you found above from the network information sheet)

3) SyncThru should load - Click "Network Admin" or "Network Settings"
4) Click on the "TCP/IP" option on the left side
5) Change the IP address METHOD to "Static"
6) Click <Apply>, then <OK> or <Exit>

Now your printer is ready to be added to your network. You have the information you need from your network configuration sheet. Your install should now proceed smoothly.

I hope this information was helpful!

Netgear DGN 2000 won't connect to internet by cable / wifi works


Might I suggest looking at the routers configuration. This can be done by typing in 192.168.1.1 into your web browser. Typically the default log in is: User Admin, Password is password. You want DHCP set on. Save all your settings. Then reset to factory default. There should be a reset button on the router. This will reset it to when it was new- any changes you made will be gone.

Since you rolled back to factory default then all of your configuration should be gone. You should still be able to connect to it using the DHCP address assigned to it though. Do the following to try to connect to it again:

o the following:

1. Try to ping the device using a PC connected to the same network.
2. If you are using DHCP, your device may just have been assigned a different IP. Try to ping all devices in your network or use a network scanner (e.g. SoftPerfect) to find out the IP address given to it.
3. Once you get the IP address, assign a static IP address to your device that is beyond the DHCP scope. This will ensure that your IP does not change and you will not have a conflict with DHCP assigned IP's.

HP Officejet printer


i assume that your printer is connected to a network. if so, it could be that the printer is set to use dhcp for the ip address. and if that's the case, it's better to set the printer to use static ip address since there would come a time that the dhcp server (a router most of the time) would provide another ip addresses to all the devices connected to it. that could be the reason why you are getting a "no connection" message (disconnecting and reconnecting it at times would solve the problem temporarily).

here are the steps on how to set static ip on the printer using a windows computer.(Note: the installation cd can automatically assign a static IP address as long as the printer does not obtain a dynamic (dhcp) address)

- boot up your computer the normal way so it'll get an ip address from your dhcp server
- then turn off your dhcp server so that the printer will not get any ip address via dhcp
- reset the printer to set its factory default configuration (with no dhcp address)
* unplug the printer from the power
* plug the power cord back in while holding in the printer’s
report button (it will try to find a dhcp server; after about three
minutes of no dhcp response, the printer will default to a static ip address of 192.0.0.192

- then print a configuration page to confirm that the ip address of the printer is set to 192.0.0.192

- then press the report button (wait until IP address is 192.0.0.192 before proceeding. if it remains set to 0.0.0.0, check the network cable connection to the printer and to the network is secure. If some other address appears repeat steps 3 and 4 until the default address appears
- you can now start the software installation cd

*during the installtion, follow these steps:
- select the model of the printer that you are using which is hp officejet before clicking on "next"
- then select "do network settings for me, then press "next
*follow the instructions on the remaining install screens
- the software will pick an ip address in the private 169.254.x.x range (not available on the open Internet) and permanently assign it to the printer. it will also set up a static route to that address in the computer’s printer configuration
- turn the dhcp server back on by turning on the dhcp server by
connecting your cable/dsl modem or dhcp to the network. because the hp now has a permanent static ip address, it will
no longer try to use dhcp server to get an address
- install the software on the other computers on the network who will be using the printer. the installation software will discover the hp printer at the 169.254.x.x address, and will add the static IP address in each computer’s printer configuration

Note: if the installation cd will permit you to change th private ip address from 169.24.x.x, it's better to set it on the same range as of the ip address given by your dhcp server (for example your dhcp server provides ip addresses starting from 192.168.1.100-192.168.1.250, set the printer's ip address to 192.168.1.59-below or any ip address that will not compromise any ip addresses that were already being used by your other devices)

hope this'll help you but if you'll have other concerns just ask me.

ciao!

I cant open an ip address for an assigned webpage.


There are several private address ranges that may be affecting the operations you are attempting to perform see table

IP Address Ranges Reserved for Private Use
Class Networks A 10.0.0.0 through 10.255.255.255 B 172.16.0.0 through 172.31.0.0 C 192.168.0.0 through 192.168.255.0
All addresses in this range in your network are only directly addressable to machines within your network at most by default. The router to your ISP and the internet as a whole maps these addresses onto the IP address assigned statically or dynamically by your ISP to the WAN side of your router using an address translation (NAT) service. So where you are attempting to connect to this device from may be significant. You may need to review your setup guide to see if it references router configuration requirements to support access to the Web_xpander port from devices not attached to your internal network. If you have multiple internal networks (address ranges and not devices) this could also be an issue.

Secondly -- does the Setup software for the device tell you the IP address assuming it is dynamically assigned. Otherwise how would you know what the address is. Static assignment could resolve that issue however you must understand your network to assign your own address. Given a theoretical network where the router gateway is 192.169.0.1 and the network mask is 255.255.255.0 the valid network addresses are 192.168.1.0 - 192.168.1.255. A router or other device supporting DHCP address assignment reserves another range such as 192.168.0.100 for 50 leases (ending at 192.168.0.149) for dynamic assignment to requesting network adapters. Ignoring the 0 and 255 address this leaves open to the network administrator (you in your home) the possibility of assigning static IP address in the ranges of say 192.168.0.2 - 192.168.0.99 and 192.168.0.150 - 192.168.0.254 or so. You as well as the DHCP server are required to assure that there are no duplicate IP addresses assigned on your network. So statically assigning 192.168.0.100 (which is DHCP assignable in our case) could and would most likely result in duplicate addressing and network problems.
