Dell Dimension 8400 IP Address Problem

Just relocated and changed internet service. Our Dell will note accept the new IP address from Comcast for internet service. I've run all the repair functions and still nothing. Besides restoring to the original factory settings, do I have any other options?

I think you give wrong IP address to your system. use correct IP which provided by the Internet connection company. otherwise reinstall your OS.

Netgear wireless router


Most likely the router is not configured for dhcp or is not renewing to pull an address from your new provider. You will need to login to the router and check the WAN ip address settings. Choose dynamic ip address (it may be currently set for for static or another option based on your previous provider). Once you choose and save the settings, click to renew the WAN ip. If you were already set for DHCP and the address is correct, you may still have an issue with DNS,.. the DNS addresses may be incorrect or non existent. If you have doubts about DNS addresses,.. you may change them to 208.67.220.220 and 208.67.222.222 (opendns) and they will work with most providers (including comcast)
I hope this helps,.. if you need details,.. please leave a comment and I can supply more.

Dell 5100cn change ip address


Changing Printer's IP Address isn't that complicated. There are two ways on how to change the printer's IP Address.

If you know the old printer's IP address, you can simply type that old IP address on the Address Bar of your Internet Explorer or any other browser (ex: http://192.168.1.101). It should redirect you to the printer's User Interface. From there you can go to Network then TCP/IP settings. You can change the IP address of the printer. Make sure to use an IP address within the same range of your network.

The other way to change the printer's IP address is by its own Menu/Settings on the printer's LCD panel.
On your printer, press Menu then got Settings. Look for Network or LAN settings and click on Advance. Select TCP/IP and click on Edit. You can now change the IP address of the printer from there. Click on Done or Save after that.

Note: Make sure the use the correct IP address within the network's range.

169 IP address just happened and now have limited to no connectivity use comcast as a provider It's a dell 2300 dimension help


This is a common networking occurrence. This is called APIPA. See this link: http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/A/APIPA.html APIPA is an IP address which is assigned when no other address is available. Whatever Windows version you have, this will work if it's above Windows 95. Click on the Start menu, choose "Run", type in "cmd.exe" once you get a command prompt, type in "ipconfig /release", then "ipconfig /renew". This will release the APIPA address and attempt to get a valid address. Hope this helps.

contact Comcast and have them reset your IP address. also have them ping your modem after they reset IP.
Also, see Linksys website for LELA (easylink advisor) to add devices to network. Uses a good bit of memory so don't allow to run automatically at start up.

Changing a Dell 3010cn IP address and Storecenter


Print a settings page from the printer. If you are not sure on how to get the settings page, download the user manual from support.dell.com, there should be instructions in there on how to get this. Once you have the settings page locate the IP address on the print out. Take this IP address (which may be different then the one you want to use) and open internet explorer, put the IP address in where you would normally type a web address, hit enter. This will take you to the embedded web server of the printer. Once you are there, you can look for printer settings, ip address or TCP/IP address. Once you have found this, you can set a static (meaning it will not change, unless you change it) IP address (the IP address your tech person gave you) and submit the information to the printer. The printer must be on and in the ready state for this to take hold. If you are prompted for a username and password for the embedded web server, dell default username in small case is admin, leave password blank or username admin, password is password. To confirm that the address has taken, print another settings page from the printer.
