How do I change the IP address on my laptop?


Simply you can change it by follow the steps below..

Do this:
go to start > run type "cmd" hit enter
in the black box type "ipconfig/all"
record all information

get out of that

go to Control Panel > (classic view) Network Connections > go to your connection and right-click, Properties, TCP/IP settings then Use the following IP address and enter all that info. Except for IP address, change the last part to 254. If it already is 254, then pick any random number below 254.

You can also go in and Repair the connection. Click on the connection, go to the Support tab and click Repair. This will reset the IP but will not necessarily give it a different number.

Finally you can check your ip address at Ip-Details.com

Title: Setting-Up a Wired Computer to Obtain an IP Address Automatically Article ID: 4033
Configuring a wired computer to get an IP address automatically will enable it to get an IP address from a DHCP server. Instead of manually entering the IP settings which will consume much time, performing this procedure will ensure that the computer will get the correct TCP/IP settings.
Configuring a computer to get an IP address automatically is useful when:
  • Connecting a computer to a network with a DHCP server. Ensuring that the computer is getting the correct TCP/IP settings.
To configure a computer to automatically get an IP address, you have to check the TCP/IP properties of the Ethernet Adapter installed on the computer. Follow the steps below for instructions.
NOTE: Make sure the wired computer is properly connected to a network with a DHCP server.

Im tryig to piggyback my wrt54g router to another part of the house. I have a cable coming from my linksys e1000 n router which is my main router. When i plug the cable into the 54g i can access the router...


What is the IP address of the E1000 router ?
If the IP address of E1000 router is 192.168.1.1, Then change the IP address of WRT54G router to 192.168.1.2. Connect the Ethernet cable from the Ethernet port of E1000 router to the Ethernet port of WRT54G router ( port 1 of E1000 to port 1 of WRT54g). Disable the DHCP server.

You can do it in a different way also.
If the IP address of E1000 is 192.168.1.1. then change the IP address of the WRT54g to 192.168.2.1. Do not disable the DHCP server of the WRT54G. Connect the E1000 to the Internet port of WRT54G.

Most likely what he did was manually set the IP address on your laptop so it would connect to their network.

With most home networks they are set to obtain IP addresses automatically. The links below will help you configure it back to obtain IP addresses automatically.

Linksys WRT54G can't connect 3rd wireless computer


log into the WRT54G wireless router and ensure that you do not have it set up for only handing out 4 IP addresses also check the laptop to see if it is set to have a DHCP or static IP address, if it has a static IP and your network is dynamic then this is why it wont connect.

if this resolves your issue and you are happy with the answer please grade me accordingly.

thanks

Cannot connect with ATT modem


Connect your pc to the ATT box. If online, check the ip address of the computer. If the ip address is 192.168.1.x, then you just have to change the router ip address. The wrt54g ip is 192.168.1.1, it may be having conflict with the ATT modem. Change the wrt54g ip to 192.168.2.1

Good Luck
