Problem with DHCP. Unable to allocate IP address. F5D8633-4

    Hi,



    The router: N Wireless Modem-Router, Part # F5D8633-4.


    Using default DHCP settings on the router.

    I have 3 wireless computers and one wired:


    1) Legacy D-link wireless PCI card, Windows XP, supports G only

    2) Acer notebook with Atheros AR5007EG wireless

    adapter, Windows XP, supports B, G

    3) iMac, Leopard, supports B, G, N. (wireless)



    The computer with the legacy G adapter connects reliably to the router as well as wired box.

    The other two wireless have problems obtaining IP addresses from the router. I can connect them eventually (by restarting several times) but as soon as I power cycle a computer or it goes to sleep and awakes the problem appears again. Computers are

    located close to the router.


    I attempted to update routers firmware but it reported that it had the latest firmware already in use.


    Thanks

    Ok 2 things that would be worth doing while I get the router manual out...




    1. When you get all 3 wireless devices connected what are the IP addresses that are assigned

    2. Do each PC connect reliably if they are the ONLY device connected?

    Please post more details



    what are you trying to conect to the Belkin router?



    Is it via ethernet or wireless?

Using the Belkin F5D8633-4  with the firmware 1.0.1  it comes with was pretty bad for three macs with Leopard 10.5.6. They constantly dropped the connection (and with the airport indicator still falsely showing a connection; you couldn't even reach the router at http://192.168.2.1/) Only turning airport off then on again reconnected. The iPhone,  OSX 10.4 and Vista windows PCs (including a Vista install on the iMac) NEVER dropped the connection. Every possible setting was tried on the Macs but the dropouts continued every few minutes As mentioned here the Belkin firmware shows no update available from the interface, but the "prerelease" firmware 1.01.06  available at the Belkin site FIXED the OSX Leopard compatibility problems straight away.

Try what Latoof suggests & use static IPs (outside the DHCP range).
Also, don't bother attempting to update the 8633's firmware through its interface. Go to the UK or Australian Belkin support site & find the "pre-release" firmware update that resides there. It contains quite a few fixes!

While you are in the mood to try a few things..

  1. Check that no other device is set up as a DHCP server
  2. try assigning static IP's to each device and seting the router LAN DHCP server to off. refer page 43 of MANUAL

Why Addresses in the IP Address Pool on a Switch Are Exhausted When the Switch Functions as a DHCP Server and It Has a Few Clients?


If the IP address pool has much more resources than needs of clients, the following two reasons may cause address exhaustion:
1. An attacker keeps changing the CHADDR field and sending DHCP Discover packets to exhaust addresses. If so, contact Huawei engineers to deploy DHCP snooping to protect the IP address pool.
2. The DHCP server ping function is enabled on the DHCP server. This function tries to ping the allocated addresses before responding to DHCP Offer packets. If a client responds to any ping packet, the DHCP server considers that there are address conflicts and addresses are exhausted. To solve this problem, two methods are available:
1. Capture packets on the ports connected to the DHCP server. If a client responds to ping packets, prohibit the client.
2. Disable the DHCP server ping function using the undo dhcp server ping packet command.
3. Such as S5700, S6700

Connect fuji xerox printer - mac pro computer as it was


Hi Lindsay. Was the fuji xerox printer plugged into the old modem by a blue ethernet cable ?
When you changed your modem it would have had a device inside it called a dhcp server that allocated the IP addresses to your computers automatically.
Now I suspect that the new modem has a device inside it called a DHCP server that is allocating a different range of IP addresses to your computers from waht it used to be.

Here comes the technical part
On the printer menu screen there should be a network setting option . Take a note of the IP address of the printer it will be 192.168.0.x or 10.0.0.x x being the unknown number. also take a note of the subnet mask . it will most likely be 255.255.255.0
next but I have no idea how to look that up on a MAC IOS system.
you may see the ip address in the printer settings properties in the MAC
you may be able to get your ISP to remotely set up your DHCP server in your router to work in the appropriate ip range to match your printer IP address and to avoid allocating the printers ip address to your computers. Then restart the computers to get new ip addresses.
If you tell them the printers IP address and Subnet mask they should be able to alter the modem's settings DHCP settings for you.

The other option is to get the DCHP IP address range of the modem and subnet mask and change the printers IP address setting and subnet mask to match the DHCP leases range by giving it a much higher number than the computers are most likely to be running on.
so if the range was 10.0.0.1 to 10.0.0.254 with subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 then the printer would be set to 10.0.0.254 and subnet mask 255.255.255.0 The first three left numbers must match they are known as the network component of the ip address 10.0.0.0 or it may be 192.168.0.0 the zero end number is the network address so you can't allocate it to a device. 192.168.0.1 or 10.0.0.1 is usually the modem address.
ISP may be able to guide you how to change the setting on the printer .

I had a client that had a lot of trouble getting a tech to come out and set up their printer to an APPLE system. I was the final Tech that eventually came out and set up the printer .

How do I get tcp/ip address from ISP provider (BigPond)


Normally TCP/IP addresses are allocated using DHCP by the provider to the router. The router will have a private address range, which will be given to a local network by its own TCP/IP.

How to install router wr740n v4 without resource cd


Milan have you got the user manual as it clearly explains how to set up the router and configure it manually !
http://www.tp-link.com.au/resources/document/TL-WR740N_V5_User_Guide.pdf
Your modem device already on your network has to have an IP address of 192.168.0.1 and according to the user manual the router detects the conflict in ip address and allocates its IP address as 192.168.1.1. If you IP address is different say 10.0.0.1 then you will have to plug just the router in to your Laptop and alter the i/IP address to 10.0.0.2 and turn off the DHCP server if the modem or existing router has DHCP. You will need to alter any existing DHCP server to have the first 10 IP addresses skipped for available leases to the computers.

Ip number for panasonic sophia tv


what is the tv plugged into. A router ? A wireless network,
If the TV has a static IP address it has to match the ip address range you already have. If it is set up to automatically obtain an address your router will have a dhcp server that you can log into and check its IP lease List to see what has been allocated to the TV. If you use DHCP you may wish to chage the lease to permanently assign the IP address to the TV.

My cisco ip phone 7905 series is rebooting continuously


Hi,

the reason for this would be that it is not getting it's config from the CallManager (or CME router).

The steps in a phone booting up something like this:
1) DHCP for IP Address, and Option 150 for TFTP Server
2) TFTP to address provided by DHCP Option 150
3) Get config file, a(an upgrade of firmware may occur at this point)
4) Connect to Call Manager/CME as specified in config file

First check DHCP server to see if it is allocating an address to the MAC address of the phone
Second confirm if DHCP is providing Option 150 and that is the IP Address of the TFTP Server (typically one of your Call Managers)
Third check that the phone is correctly configured on CCM/CME. A common error at this stage is that the phone is configured with the wrong model type.

Call back if you get to that stage and are still having problems.

Cheers, Simmo99.

Wi-Fi not connecting on Toshiba Satellite A15-S157 PC Notebook


you tried giving it a static IP address rather than using automatic settings (i.e. DHCP). Sure enough, this cured the problem, connected fine. I looked in the dhcp server logs and while it was not complaining that the IP address pool was all used, it did seem that all the IP addresses available were being used. I increased the number of IP addresses available to be allocated by the dhcp server and problem solved. The big mystery to me is why Windows XP would report this as a problem with a weak signal? Isn't the access to the dhcp server and the allocation of the IP address at a layer above the wireless connection? Anyway, it's useful to be warned that the wireless diagnostics are misleading.
