Question about GE Security Simon 3 Wireless Home Security System

1 Answer

TCP/IP Failure Continuos beeping from GE Simon alarm. Loses it's ip address and gets a new one from linksys router every 5-10 minutes. Driving my wife and I nuts. Have tried giving the unit a static ip from router interface. Have tried the unplug restart thing countless times. Most solutions tried. Protect America just says to buy a d-link router. That their systems work best with them. Frustrated. Locked into a three-year contract.

    My SImon also has a TCP/IP problem that occured 5 days after installation. At the recommendation of Protect America,I have installed a new D-Link router, changed my internet connection protocol (because the D-Link could not figure out how to connect to a dedicated DSL line without a password), verified that my internet security program is NOT interferring with the router, and updated all applicable software. Protect America has sent a new Simon and it does exactly the same thing. Of course, they won't take it back and refund my money. Don't buy from Protect America without checking out their UNACCEPTABLE rating by the Better Business Bureau.

Unfortunatly you dont get somthing for nothing. what state are you located in? see there is somthing about a contract with no service. if your company does not perform then you shoul be let out of your contract. tell the if there system only work with d-link they should provided it. ask the to remotly program a static address into your system. it does not matter if your router is setup for a certain static IP if your panel is set to dynamic ip. make them fix it. its companies like this that give my industry a negitive view in consumers eyes. they need to fix your problem of step aside so you can find a company that will. Now GO Get Em.

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.

PlayStation 3 keep getting nat type 3 when need type 2


Hi
I was having problems with my PS3 as well I did the following

updated firmwire

Also I assign static ip address on my PS3 and forward ports used by PS3 to static IP address of PS3 on routers firewall.

Ports used by PS3:
udp 3478
udp 3479
udp 3658
tcp.domain (port 53)
udp.domain (port 53)
tcp.http (port 80)
tcp.https (port 443)
udp.ssdp (port 1900)
tcp.amandaBackupInitiation (10080)
tcp.Jabber SSL/TLS (port 5223)
tcp.10075
tcp.10078
tcp.10079

If your still getting problems configure the PS3 to be in your DMZ.

DMZ will be under applications and gaming. Just look for that setting in your routers setup page and add your PS3 IP address to it.

Computer cannot connect to internet although it show connected to linksys


you need to check whether the IP address is correct. normally, linksys router gives you the ability of having DHCP. so the IP address must be picked up automatically. check the setting on your TCP/IP and set to automatically obtain IP address.

How do I do port forwarding with one static IP to put my address in my other computers . I need to shadow into with VNC after I install address on my computer is port forwarding marked on the menus are...


Find the IP-address of the computer that you want to accept VNC connections.

Access the router's web-interface.
Find its web-page for "port-forwarding".
Define 'TCP' port '5900' to be forwarded to the IP-address that you found.
Save the settings, and restart your router.

Hopefully, Verizon's FIOS network does not "block" all 'TCP:5900' traffic.

Static IP


What do you mean new IP address, you are trying to connect to the router, or are you trying to connect to the internet? If you are trying to do this from your PC, check if you have DHCP enabled. Go to [Start > Settings> Network Connections]
Then right click on Local Area Connection and select properties.
Then on the list select TCP/IP and select the properties button.
Then the window comes up you should have obtain IP address automatically radio button selected, if not do it and hit Ok then ok on the next window
Hope that helps,
Lee

Problem connecting to the net


You router may be set to be DHCP enabled so that it allocates the ip addresses automatically to each pc, so check that the pc's network card with connection problems is set in the properties on the TCP/IP line is set to obtain an ip address automatically. You can also try, Start>run then type ipconfig /flushdns to clear the pc ip address and dns. and restart pc. Lastly if you pc is both network cabled and wireless, ensure one or the other is dissabled as this can confuse the ip adress alocation.
