I have never actually set one up, but I have done printer servers & lots of other devices, so I imagine this will be the same.. The Brand & model should give you a default IP. Usually you can change that after installation. So look at the device, go to the vendors website or if you have documentation, it will tell you there. Or tell me the brand & model, so I can find the IP for you. With these kinds of posts, you need to provide as much information as possible. Worst case, there is various software solutions (for networking) that can discover the device. But thats the hard way in this case. Let me know how you go..

How can I make settings to support DHCP IP assignments and also recognize my manual IP's assigned to the LAN connected devices?


The easiest way I can think of is to shrink the DHCP address pool.

To do that, at least on the model of Actiontec router I have, click on "Network (Home/Office)" the go to the "IP Address Distribution" section of the screen. "DHCP Server" should already be selected, and under that, you'll find "Start IP addresses" and "End IP addresses." Usually, the start will be 192.168.1.2 and the end will be 192.168.1.254. What I usually do is change the start address to 192.168.1.200. That leaves over 50 addresses for normal wireless connections, and I'll general assign IP addresses from the rest of the range as follows:
192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.9: routers, APs, etc.
192.168.1.50 to 192.168.1.59: printers
192.168.1.100 to 192.168.1.109 for other static devices. (I often find that Blu-Ray players, cable boxes, etc. behave better if they have a static address.)

But really, on home network, I doubt you'll have more than 15 devices that need static addresses, so you could set the DHCP start address as low as 192.168.1.16 if you wanted to.

Its a freind and he asked if i knew how to hook it up. im not with him. hes at another location. is it simple. i have a 660 series fron centurylink and was simple to do. it it about the same? he said it...


To open the set up page of the router of the router , one of your computer should be able to go online through the router.
It could be a wired computer or wireless computer.
If it is a wireless computer then make sure that the computer is connected to your own wireless network.
Do not change any wireless settings on the router using a wireless computer.
OK ! Now you have a computer online through the router and you want to open the set up page of the router.

First step is check the IP address of the computer.
Check the IP address and the Default gateway on the computer.

For Windows XP

START ==> RUN ==> type in cmd in the RUN box==> click OK or Hit ENTER . You will see a black window that is a command prompt . In the black window type in " ipconfig " ==> and Hit ENTER on your key board .

For Windows Vista and Windows 7

click on START ==> type in cmd in the start search box ==> enter ==> you will see the black window. Type in " ipconfig "you will see a lot of information. Try to find out the local area connection IPv4 address .

Note down the Default gateway number.

For MAC OS

Click APPLE icon in the right top corner of the computer. Go to System Preferences ==> go to Network ==> you will find the option Built in Ethernet or Airport whichever is connected. If you go to that you will find the Ip address and router Address.

The default gateway is the IP address of your router.

This IP address of the router will be used to open the set up page of the router

Now you got the IP address of the router.Open the Internet Browser ( Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari )

In the Address bar of the browser Type the IP address of the router.

Do not type http:// or www just type in the IP address only.

It will ask you for the user name and the password of the router.

This is the User name and the password of the router and NOT the wireless password. On a wireless router, there are 2 passwords. One is to access the router and the other one is for the wireless network.

For most of the routers the default password will be " admin " . for some routers the default password is " password ". For Linksys router the default password is admin and no user name.

My computer beyond ISA server and also have note book, when cable wire not attach with router then my wire note book connect easily, when i put my cable connection in router, wireless indication light stop...


First of all, routers come with static ips... (the default is usually 192.168.1.1). So I am going to assume you mean your internet ip is a dynamic ip. Now Im not an ISA expert, so I may be wrong... but ISA should work with a dynamic external IP. And lastly if you cant get it to work, a quick call to your ISP will get you a static IP.

or


Try to configure the IP address of the external NIC in the same network as your router with the default gateway pointing to your router´s IP address.

In the internal NIC, configure the IP address of the internal network in the same subnet as your internal clients, set no default gateway and set an internal DNS.

In the internal network definition, you should put only the networks behind ISA trust interface.

Create access rules according to your needs.

Can not access router setup page. IP is to be 192.168.1.102 , says can not find. This is the main computer on network, other's are wireless.


The number 192.168.1.102 must be your computer's IP address.If you want to access the router set up then You will need the Ip address of the router.
Is your computer connected to the router with the cable. if not then connect the computer to the router and check the IP address and default gateway on the computer.
Once you have the default gateway number use that number to open the router set up.
Generally the Linksys router IP address is 192.168.1.1.
Try this number.

No ip address


Many people need to connect additional computers or game consoles. To do this, most use a home network router, which shares a single IP address across multiple computers. No special configuration of your Shaw service or modem is required.

For information on how to configure a home network, consult the manufacturer's documentation included with the hub or router you have purchased.

  • Access the router configuration page.
  • Set the router to use Cable as Internet connection type.

I have a D-Link Gamer's Lounge router. I hooked up an HP LX195 NAS (running WHS OS), and had problems getting it to work. Is there a way to adjust the router to work with networked drives?


You likely have the nas set to a different ip range than the router. Then the router can't see the nas, because it's 'on a different network'.

So:

Log in to the router and check the dhcp range of addresses being dished out. It's probably 192.168.0.X The router is likely 192.168.0.1
subnet 255:255:255:0

Log into the interface of the nas, and set it's ip address to 192.168.0.99 subnet 255.255.255.0 and set it's gateway to the ip address of the router (probably 192.168.0.1) Save your changes.

See if you can ping 192.168.0.99 from your pc. If yes, then log back into the router and EXCLUDE 192.168.0.99 from the dhcp addresses being given out by the router.

If still no good, post a comment and I'll get back to you :)

I have a D-link EBR-2310 router and hooked it up a couple days ago. Since i have hooked it up and put my home comp and laptop on it. It runs the internet for a while and then it throws up errors on my comp...


You probably have a static ip address set on one of the pc's. The router is set to give out ip addresses automatically. If one of the pc's has a static ip address set,(within the range of addresses that the router is dishing out) then the router may try to give out that address, see that it is already in use, and produce the error.

This is easy to fix:

For xp:
go to the control panel, then to network connections. Right click on your network connection, and left click on properties. In the white area of the window that pops up, click on 'internet protocol tcp/ip' and click properties.

For vista:
Go to the control panel, network and sharing centre, then click on manage network connections, right click on your network adapter, left click properties. Click on internet protocol version 4 (uncheck version 6 if it is checked) and check for auto ip and dns just like in xp.

Both pc's should be set to obtain an ip address and dns server automatically. If there are numbers in either area, this is the problem for sure. Make sure both are set to get an address automatically, reboot router and both pc's and that should be the end of it :)

Please post a comment and let me know how you make out.

Internet but can't see other machines on the network


If you have a switch or would be able to borrow one from someone. Try connecting your computers to it and see if they can see each other. If they can then that means there is a problem with the switching part of your router which normally means a hardware problem on the router.

Network


as long as you are not using your own router to connect to your neighbours, as this wont work only one router on the network can connect to the net Im assuming your pc is trying to connect to the neighbours router, so you need to reset the router if you cant access it, it should have no password as default and the ip address of the router should be 192.168.2.1. get into your network cards properties and ensure obtain an ip address automatically on the TCP/IP line is selected. Go into the router settings and make sure enable DHCP is set to allocate ip addresses automatically and that the router transmits on mixed mode b and G, turn off any wep or wpa encryption until you have a connection. Do not use windows connection repair as it will totaly mess up your pc's ip addresses and stop you from connecting to the routers ip address.
