Question about Paradyne (6218-A1-200) Wireless Router (6218A1200)
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.
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).
