I can connect with my(wireless) Dell, however the router assigns me a public ip address(66.), same deal as a desktop connected with a lan cable. It will not allow another wireless desktop to connect. The wireless desktop's lan manager shows a connection with good signal strength but it assigns it a private ip address.(192.0). It did allow the wireless desktop to connect once but I have not been able to repeat the connection.
Re: Paradyne 6218-12-200 won't connect all computers
A public IP address is usually assigned to the WAN port (outside/public side), which is how your router is conected to your Internet provider service.
A private IP is always assigned to the private network side (LAN = Inside). Unless you are hard coding your IP addressing on each of your devices, you will need to have DHCP enabled in your router with enough user IPs for your devices (more than 1).
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

The IP address of an item, unless you specifically assign it one, is done automatically by the router when it connects to the network. This address can be different each time the device connects depending upon what other devices are already connected.
you can set your laptop up to detect ip address automatically in its network settings. if you had provided the operating system it would have helped to narrow down how to do this. If you had told us how you plan to connect to the router this also would have been helpful. Are you connecting via blue cat5 ethernet cable or via wireless. If it is wireless your laptop should detect the wireless network and you can ask it to connect to it. If the wireless link is encrypted you need to log into the router via ethernet cable and look for the securirty settings on the wireless and find out what the encryption code is. Usually the router will use what is called an internal IP address range. the subnet is usually class c being 255.255.255.0 and the ip address default gateway IP address is usually either 10.0.0.1 or 184.108.40.206 and this can be put into the browser to log into the router. When you set the laptop to automatically obtain the IP address the Wireless Router has a DHCP server that manages the leases of IP addresses to computers connected to it. However if you are connecting the Wireless Router into an existing network with another router you will need to set the IP address to the next IP address eg 10.0.0.1 on existing router make second router 10.0.0.2> if you have a DCHP server on the wireless turn it off if you have a DCHP server on the existing router otherwise you have confusion as to which DHCP server to listen too on your network.Make sure the DHCP router does not allocate at least the first 10 addresses eg 10.0.0.1 to 10.0.0.10 to allow for the routers and printers on your network that may need dedicated IP addresses (Static IP addresses)
You shouldn't have to configure anything except the PC's should have IP and gateway set to auto.
Here is how it works:
A router connects two separate networks and manage the traffic between them.
In most home network applications the router connects your local group of computers and devices known as the LAN with the Internet, commonly called the WAN or Wide Area Network.
The router usually assigns unique Local IP addresses to all of the devices connected to it via a service known as DHCP. The addresses assigned by your router are private addresses http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_net... and are not routable across the Internet.
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is an auto configuration protocol used on IP networks. Computers that are connected to IP networks must be configured before they can communicate with other computers on the network. DHCP allows a computer to be configured automatically, eliminating the need for intervention by a network administrator. It also provides a central database for keeping track of computers that have been connected to the network. This prevents two computers from accidentally being configured with the same IP address. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic_Hos...
Your cable or DSL modem will get a Public WAN IP address from your ISP's DHCP service. These public IP addresses are leased in blocks by your ISP and are Internet routeble. The modem is connected to the WAN port on your router. The router will manage the traffic between the devices on the LAN and the Internet.
If your 5 port switch is connected to one of the router's LAN ports and router's DHCP is on then it will configure the clients attached to It automatically.
You must enable the DHCP setting on wireless router if you've configured
the computer's wireless adapter to obtain an IP address automatically.
If not you will get the "failed to acquire an IP address" error when you
try to connect to wireless network! Also don't forget to configure big
enough IP range on router's DHCP setting, because the router won't be
able to assign IP to 6 computers if you only configured 5 IP space on
Try assigning your laptop a static IP. To do this in Windows:
Open Windows Start menu.
Open Control Panel.
Classic view: Open Network Connections Category view: Select Network and Internet Connections, and thenNetwork Connections.
Double-click on your active LAN or Internet connection.
In the General tab, highlight the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) item, and clickProperties.
In the General tab, click Use the following IP address, and enter:
- IP address. The static IP address you want to assign to this computer (try 192.168.1.110 to start).
- Subnet mask. Subnet mask used by your router (try 255.255.255.0 to start).
- Default gateway. IP address of your router's default gateway (try 192.168.1.1 to start).
In Use the following DNS server addresses, enter all the IP addressses for the DNS servers your router uses (or you can try your router's address, probably 192.168.1.1).
On the "wired" computer:
Type IPCONFIG /RENEW
Type IPCONFIG /ALL
Note the IP-address assigned to the Ethernet adapter.
Note the date/time at which the router assigned the IP-address to your computer.
Repeat on one of the "wireless" computers.
The IP-address should *NOT* match the IP-address of your "wired" computer, and the date/time should be close, but not identical, to the valuesl from the "wired" computer.
Any error-messages from the 'IPCONFIG /ALL' command?
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
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 WAN settings and configure your router as static ip then enter ip address and dns server of internet service provider.
then apply if you want ip from router enable DHCP
Then click on wireless settings then turn on wifi set SSID .
If you want secure wifi then in wireless security enable WEP enter WEP code it is your password for connect wi fi.
Then save settings and restart router.
Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
Check if the router is assigning IP addresses to the Wireless devices. Also se if you hard-wired desktop has been assigned an IP address manually. Else try to assign IP's to wireless devices manually (Depends on your setup)
If desired change the IP address or Gateway will please right click
the name (My Network Places), then right click (Local Area Connection),
(Properties), have at the bottom to select, high light the name (Internet
Protocol (TCP / IP), Lift Click the Properties, to trim after you customize IP
add and modify the following required.Good Luck
