It could be that someone like an administrator put a static ip on your LAN properties. To resolve this, (in windows 7) just go to control panel, click on network and sharing center, then on the upper left corner, click on change adapter settings, then right click on LAN (local area connection) then click on properties. Highlight or select Internet Prptocol version 4 then click on properties. On the general tab, just select obtain ip address automatically. Hope this helps.

If this happens when both pc's are online then either the person that manages the network has done a poor job of setting it up, or the person that owns the second pc has manually set the wrong IP in its network properties. Or it has set up his pc to act as a clone in order to get internet for free.

Possibly a different subnet...or maybe you need to reboot your router.

HP 1312 printer running wirelessly from a laptop (Windows 7). Has always worked fine. Turned printer off when we were on vacation; now printer is "offline." Have reinstalled printer driver and...


Hi!

The problem you described can have multiple causes.

But one is more common:

Every device on your home network (wired or wireless) has its own IP adress. Usualy this IP adress is given automatically by the DHCP server contained in your wireless router. When a device is turned off for some time, it can receive when turned on again another IP adress than before.
So, if your printer has no static IP adress (entered by yourself during printer setup), it is very likely that it has now other IP than the address known by your computer. The computer sends the print jobs to the old adress and of course, nothing is printed.

Please check in your printers proprieties the adress of the TCPIP port assigned tom it, and also check on your router's management site what clients are connected to it.
The network communication between the computer and the printer can be checked by issuing a PING command from a command prompt.
e.g ping 192.168.1.***
the numbers are one example of an IP adress.

Please let me know if it helped, if you need more help ask again, I'll be glad to help you to get the problem solved.

Regards,
Bogdan

Can you tell me what an ip addresse is im trying to connect to xbox live and it keeps asking for ip addresse


Every device connected to the public internet is assigned a unique number known as an internet protocol (IP) address. IP addresses consist of four numbers separated by periods(also called a 'dotted-quad') and look something like 127.0.0.1 

since these numbers are usually assigned to internet service providers with region based blocks, an IP address can often be used to identify the region or country from which a computer is connecting to the internet. an IP adress can sometimes be used to show the users general location because the numbers may be tedious to deal with, an IP adress may also be assigned to a host name, which is sometimes easier to remember hostnames may be looked up to find IP adresses,and vice-versa. at one time ISPs issued one IP adress to each user. These are called static IP addresses. beacuse there is a limited number of IP adresses and with increased usage of the internet ISPs now issue IP adresses in a dynamic fashion out of a pool of IP addresses (using DHCP). these are referred to as dynamic IP addresses. This also limits the ability of the user to host websites mail servers, ftp servers, etc. in addition to users connecting to the internet with virtual hosting,a single machine can act like multiple machines (with multiple domain names and IP addresses).

Check in your router to see if your router is set up to be a DHCP Server. If your router and adsl are both set up to be DHCP servers, sometimes they will fight with each other and some computers seem to have problems getting adresses from this kind of setup. Make sure that only one is set up to give out adresses, then check on your second computer to make sure that it is set to obtain adress automaticaly. If someone has set a manual adress in that computer that is not on the same subnet as the router, they will not comunicate. If this does not solve your problem, try putting in manual adresses into both computers: IE 192.168.1.2, subnet mask 255.255.255.0, Default gateway 192.168.1.1 in the first, and 192.168.1.3 in the second with the same subnet and default gateway,

Right ip adress in xbox360 but it keeps failing..?


You don't set the IP address (You can but that's a whole nother story, IP address' have to be unique to the device), you need to let your router assign one automatically. Two devices on the same network can't have the same IP address or it will fail to function completely.

No ip adress


Hi,
First, at the command prompt type ipconfig /flushdns. This will purge the dns cache, then type ipconfig /registerdns. This will refresh your DHCP lease and re-register any DNS names.

After trying the ipconfig /registerdns command, wait for about 15 minutes, then check your status and see it your issue is resolved.

If not, try reinstalling your NIC drivers.
Let us know if you need further clarification.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com
