Laptop will not find ip address

I'm having a problem with my laptop finding my wireless connection. When it does it does not find my IP address. When I finally find a way to get it to do so (by this time I've tried so many things I forget what actually worked) when I turn the unit off the problem starts all over again

Try updating the wireless driver from manafacturers website or if youve already done this uninstall the driver in device manager and reboot the laptop. This will auto reinstall the driver with all the default settings. If still having trouble reset the wireless router see how it goes with no security settings to start then just leave at minimal depending how much security you need. Good luck hope this helps

How to connect my self and make my IP address ?


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 198.168.0.1 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)

OTC Wireless Bridge


Alright I have good news and bad news the good news is: if you remove your IP Phones the setup will work again. Once it is working plug in one of your IP phones with Laptop plugged into the bridge. Once the IP phone is connected test if the Laptop remains connected. The use another Laptop with crossover cable to connect it to the IP Phone one question (is the IP Phone acting as a bridge between the OTC Router and the Laptop?)If it is it can pull an IP address if the OTC Router is a router and the IP phone is acting as a routed interface bridge. Once you get this to work duplicate the setup for the rest of you IP phones and laptops. BTW you do realize you are pummeling the router with RTP/UDP packets? I hope this helps Thank you, Shuttle83

Why would the ethernet internet connection not work - but the wireless connection would?


You might be out of IPs in the router. There's a setting where you can allow a set amount of IPs (like 5 or 10 devices). If the IP is 169.x.x.x it means the TV didn't get an IP and the laptop working means that it already has an IP designated in the router.

Anyway, go into the router settings and look for the "IP scope" and increase it by 5-10 and save it, then try again.
Usually home routers have a default setting and all devices get a similar IP (wireless and wired alike), so I would venture to guess that you are out of them, what with cell phones, laptops, tablets etc.

My wireless connection to my Sharp smart tv works - but the wired connection does not. Should the two IP addresses be the same or different for wired and wireless?


For the same hardware on your system the IP address needs to be the same, no matter how its connecting to the router. Also check your available IP addres range on the router. The IP address must be within the routers IP address range or it will not see it.

One of five PCs not connecting to Belkin 54G router


I would connect it to the router using a lan cable to verify that it will get a IP address and connect to the internet. Write down the IP information and make a static wireless connection with that info. It should work hardwired and wirelessly with this info. If it doesn't work wirelessly you may have a bad wireless card or you may find that their is already conflicting static IP info in the connection that has to be removed. Make sure that on your internet protocol (TCP/IP) properties that you have selected "Obtain an IP address automatically" and Obtain DNS server address automatically". Clear any settings that you may see there.

Can only connect 1 computer to router


You might need to check if your laptop is able to get a valid IP address when connected wirelessly to the router. You can go to the Control Panel then click on network connections and look for wireless network connection. Right click the wireless network connection then click properties. Click the support tab and there you will see the IP address. You should not be getting 169.254.x.x. Where X represents numbers.


An IP address is very important. Make sure you're getting a correct IP address and it should be the IP address provided by your router. Without a valid IP address, you won't be able to get onlinwe. Your wireless connection can tell you that its connected eventhough its not getting a valid IP address.

Tiscali wirless connection issue


Sounds like the router may need a firmware update as the DHCP service is failing to run correctly.

You can however just use a static ip address.
First of all find out the network address in use.
eg. 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.2.1
to find out, - start menu - run - cmd - ok - ipconfig

1. Log on to the client computer as Administrator or as Owner. 2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel. 3. Click Network and Internet Connections. 4. Click Network Connections. 5. Right-click Wireless Network Connection, and then click Properties. 6. Click the General tab, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) in the This connection uses the following items list, and then click Properties. 7. In the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties dialog box, click Obtain an IP address automatically (if it is not already selected), and then click OK.

Note You can also assign a unique static IP address in the range of 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.254. For example, you can assign the following static IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway:

IP Address 192.168.0.2
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Default gateway 192.168.0.1
