DHCP is superior to Static IP in every conceivable way. It is not any slower. However, when you FIRST connect to a dynamic ip router, your computer and the router have to handshake a bit, which takes a few seconds.

After that, they are at the identical speed. DHCP shields you from all sorts of trouble like colliding IP addresses, DNS server, subnet masks and gateways. It is way better and more reliable to go with DHCP.

Static ip is only useful if you *need* static ip, e.g. if you want to host a server on your router and you need the computer's dns server to stay the same.

That said, if you still want to use a static ip, here's how:

Simply disable the DHCP server in the router's settings. Also, go into the router's "status" page and take note of the DNS ADDRESS(S). You will need this later.

(Please note, if you disable the dhcp server, the only way to get back into your router and re-enable it is to use static ip on the computer, or to hard reset the router)

Then, you configure each computer connected to the router to use a static IP as opposed to obtaining it automatically. To do this in windows XP:

Go to start->control panel->network connections
Right click on Local Area Connection and go to Properties
Select "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" from the listbox
Click Properties
In the general tab, tick the radio box "Use the following IP address"
Type in the ip adderss you want (e.g. 192.168.0.105)
Type in 255.255.255.0 as the subnet mask
Leave the default gateway blank
Type the ip address of the DNS server you took note of earlier into the "Preferred DNS" section at the bottom of the form.

Click ok and ok and ok until you're out of all the boxes. Your IP is now static, and cross your fingers. If you did everything correct, it will work. If not, check your settings.

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>.

I have an HP Lasejet 1320 printer and I am trying to reset static IP Address as we are moving from one network to another. I need to know how I can determine the mac address of the printer as I can...


Hi there,
To find the static IP and Mac Address of your printer, press and hold green button for 10 seconds until green and yellow light starts blinking together, it will take out 3 print outs, 1 is printer information, 2nd will be configuration page, 3rd will be the toner status page,
Also you can Check your printer manual. This is the easiest and fastest way to find the printer's MAC address
Alternatively Print out a configuration page.
If you require more assistance, feel free to reply to this post
Thanks for Asking FixYA!

modems are now shipped with the Hardware firewall turned on low to block things,and also Telnet..

Turned it off and then it should also all fixed.

there is methods of hacking this unit as well

------------------
Step 1: you have to make sure your IP is set to 192.168.2.2


Step 2: Go to »192.168.2.1/pfwizardj.cgi?code=E···retain=f and set "All Items" under "Profile Configuration Access" click next and choose "Do not require admin login"


Step2: Go to »192.168.2.1/pfwizardj.cgi?code=E···retain=f and do the same thing, except type 192.168.2.2 as your "Constant Profile IP Address".

(if everything went ok, you should now see the new configuration page)

From here, you have to access every configuration page manually.

Here they are:

»192.168.2.1/dhcpcfg.htm - DHCP
»192.168.2.1/ddnscfg.htm - Dynamic DNS (what francoisr wanted)

New computer hung at "Acquiring network address"


Hi,

Verify that the DHCP feature of the router is enabled. Alternately, you may want to set the PC to use static IP configurations rather than "Obtain an IP address automatically". Sometimes WinXP WiFi configuration messes connections when none WEP or WPA is used.

You may want to fix set your PC's WiFi config to IP Add:192.168.1.2; Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 and Default Gateway: 192.168..1 (that is of course assuming that your NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Router uses the 192.168.0.1 IP add).

If this still does not work, pls post back so we can figure out tricking the WinXP WiFGi config to connect.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
