Question about Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO (F5D9230-4) Router (1010835)
I've been struggling with this router for a while with our current setup. Previously, I had a Linksys WAG54G which was reasonably ok though the ethernet switch part died.
Anyway, the problem I'm getting with this Belkin G+ MIMO router seems to be related to the wireless bit - wired, it seems to be ok as we have 2 laptops connecting wirelessly and a desktop & printer connecting through a switch which is wired into the ethernet part of the router. All (except the printer) have IP addresses allocated by DHCP.
I think the problem is that after disconnecting from the router (either by logging off, sleeping or switching off), the router still retains the computer name and dhcp IP address and will not release it as per the LAN settings: Lease Time > One hour Two hours Half Day One Day Two Days One Week Two Weeks Forever The length of time the DHCP server will res erve the IP address for each computer
I've tried various combinations of settings but it won't release it until either another computer has connected and had an IP address allocated or the router is restarted - sometimes it has to be a restart. Having said that, it is intermittent, and I can't seem to isolate what circumstances cause it to retain the settings or not.
I'm left with several options: restarting the router whenever the problem occurs, returning the router (claiming it's faulty) and replacing it or getting a different one. Or, I could use a wireless access point plugged into the router/switch to serve as the wireless part: laptops would then connect through the access point.
Anyone got any better ideas or suggestions? Or experienced similar problems?
The time span for the assigned IP address are controlled by the router in the DHCP configuration, which can be set to your satisfaction, by accessing the router configuration page, by entering http://192.168.0.1 in the internet explorer address window. Be sure to use the IP Address assigned to the router.. Also you can release an IP of a computer by opening the MS/DOS command window by clicking Start/Run and typing in CMD and then enter at the courser ipconfig /release this will release the ip. then type ipconfig /renew this will reset the ip of the computer. If this helps please rate as a FixYa. Thanks BPCS
