Hi,
although I don't support IP Pirates(if they can afford not to be). there is one trick that may help but not if the security on the router is strong as they can set it to only hand out 1 number. However if you know the IP(192.168.0.2) that is being handed out. then you can manually set the wireless adapter on the second system to have an IP that is +1(192.168.0.3) (instead of a DHCP setting)of the number you are given. make sure the gateway and subnet mask is exactly as is handed out to the first system.
you can easily view this info. from a command prompt and typing:ipconfig /all

GL
hope this helps

How to figure out your default subnet mask


A subnet mask is a 32-bit binary number, very similar to an IP address. And like an IP address, the subnet mask is usually expressed as a set of four octets written in decimal form, with each octet separated by a period.

The subnet mask is used by routers and switches to determine which part of a computer or other device's IP address is the network identifier, and which part is the host identifier. There are three default subnet masks, one for each of the IP classes A, B, or C. The default subnet masks are:

Class A = 255.0.0.0
Class B = 255.255.0.0
Class C = 255.255.255.0

To determine the default subnet mask for your network, all you need to do is see which class your network falls into. A network's class is assigned based on the first octet (the set of digits before the first period) of the IP address. For example, to find out which class the network 123.22.8.0 belongs to, you would see where "123" fits into the following table:

First Octet: Class:
1-126 = Class A
128-191 = Class B
192-223 = Class C

So for the example above, 123.22.8.0 is a Class A network, which means it would have a default subnet mask of 255.0.0.0.

Most home and office networks will be Class C networks, so your default subnet mask will typically be (you guessed it) 255.255.255.0. Not all networks use the default subnets, but for those that do, figuring it out is easy once you know which class your network fits into.

Need help connecting wireless router


To connect a laptop to a wireless network for accessing internet....you have two ways:-

  1. DHCP (Dynamic Host Control Protocol)
  2. Manual entry of settings in wireless adapter properties.
1.DHCP:-
In DHCP method you dont have to enter any settings on the wireless adapter. The wireless network which you are connecting will automatically assign an IP Address to you. But to use DHCP it must be supported by your wireless network.

2. Manual entry of settings in wireless adapter properties.

This method is mostly used over wireless Connection in small networks connecting 2-200 computers. In this method you have to obtain the following information from your connection provider.
  • IP address (Its format is "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx")
  • Default gateway address (very important)
  • Primary and secondary DNS (If not given then you can use "8.8.8.8" as primary DNS and "8.8.4.4" as Secondary DNS...thats free DNS service from google and its very fast)
  • Subnet Mask (not needed mostly...automatically generated)
To enter these settings you have to rightclick the Wireless Adapter>> and select properties>>Then double click the Internet Protocol version 4(TCP/IPv4) and enter these settings. In many cases when you are using proxy server then you have yo use proxy settings also in your browser..
Hope this will help....Cheers..:)

We currently have benkin wireless in th home but for some reason can't get it to hook up on two other computers in the house. What should we do


Before you do the steps below make sure your Networking Interface Card (NIC) is working. You can find out this by typing 127.0.0.1 in command prompt (to bring command prompt type cmd in the RUN command)

Step 01: type ncpa.cpl on the Run command
Step 02: Right click the network connection and navigate to the properties.
Step 03: Under Networking Tab select the Internet Protocol IP v 4 click property button right underneath it.
Step 04: Under General make sure to click the Obtain IP automatically and Obtain DNS automatically. This allows your belkin wireless router to assign IP address dynamically.
Step 05: Open your web browser and type 192.168.1.1 (usually this address is your default gateway if not 0.1 or 2.1 on the address) and access the belkin router.
LAN settings: IP address should be your default gateway address and subnet mask will assign automatically if not type 255.255.255.0 on the subnet mask section.
Make sure DHCP (Dynamic Host Config Protocol) is on and assign IP pool from next address to starting address and ending usually 254 or 100)
Start 192.168.2.2 End 192.168.2.100

Lease Make sure DNS are assign automatically.
ignore above steps if they are already assigned.
once you finished reboot your computer (you dont have to do this)
Now open browser enjoy.
If you still dont get internet you must check your cabling with ur router to pc. or different port

You can assign ip with 2 method 1 is manually and other is automatic .
If you set manualy ip you must need to set gateway as your printers and other computer's gateway.
Subnetmask is same in all system.
For example if your netgear lan ip is 192.168.1.1 then your printer ip 192.168.1.5 sunet mask as 255.255.255.0 and gateway is 192.168.1.1
Other computer's ip 192.168.1.6 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.1
Make sure the printer driver installed and it is in network.
IF you want ip from netgear then you need to enable dhcp in it.
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.1.1 or
http://192.168.0.1 or
http://192.168.15.1
or
http://192.168.2.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.

Then click on dhcp then enable save settings and restart netgear.
Then in printer set ip get automatic from router.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.11.1
