Help with Static IP address configuration

I'm being told that in order to effectively download bit torrents, I need to set up a static IP address. I did this but now I have a problem. I use a laptop that I carry from work to home. I have a Linksys router at work and a Buffalo router at home. When I set up a static IP address at work.. then I can't connect at home. Is there some way to set up each router with a static address but still allow my laptop to search and connect to them? Thanks for any help you can give me.

No need to set static IP addresses for the PC, i have been using UTorrent client with a laptop and used the laptop on different network, just set your torrent port to be dynamic, or let the torrent client find an open port everytime you use it (it is always under network settings / preferences).

if you have other questions just let me know, i'd be more willing to help out.

Steps to Configure Static IP Address for Epson Wireless Printer


The IP address is a specific number allocated to a device, which is connected to your PC network. If you require configuring a static IP address for your Epson printer, it can be possible by using the network configuration menu that you can access via the Internet browser on a connected system. To do that, it's necessary to know your printer's existing IP address. If you have a password protected the device, then you must know the username and password credentials to access your Epson printer network configuration menu. You can call at the Epson Printer tech support phone number and get expert's assistance to do that in a proper way.

Find Epson Printer's IP Address

    1.Click the 'Windows Start' button and choose the 'Control Panel' on any system connected to the similar network as your Epson printer.
    2.Double-click the 'Printers and Faxes' option and then find the Epson printer that you want to configure a static IP address for in the printer list.
    3.Right-click on the Epson printer from the list and choose the 'Properties' option.
    4.Click the 'Ports' tab and find the printer to configure a static IP address. Click on the printer to select it.
    5.Click on the vertical bar between Description and Port and shift it to the right to expand the Port column. Find the Epson printer's IP address under the 'Port' column, which is a series of numbers divided by, resembles and periods 192.168.1.2.
    Configure Static IP Address

      1.Open up your favorite Internet browser on the system connected to the similar network connection as your printer for which you need to set up a static IP address.
      2.Input the printer's IP address into your browser address bar. Click the 'Enter' button.
      3.Enter your printer login information. If it's not password-protected, enter 'admin' text into the 'Username' box and leave the password field vacant. Click the 'OK' button, followed by the 'IP Configuration' tab to sign into the Epson wireless printer settings page.
      4.Find the 'IP Address Configuration' or 'TCP/IP' section and adjust the value from 'Auto' to 'Manual' or 'Static.'
      5.Input the static IP address that you need to allocate to the Epson wireless printer into the provided boxes. It forces the network to assign the selected IP address to the Epson printer every time it tries to connect to the computer.
      6.Click the 'Save' button to apply the settings and close the browser.
      Additional Tips:

      Configuring a static IP address for the Epson wireless printer is not a complicated process if you are a tech-savvy user. However, if you can't set static IP address for your printer even after following these steps, you must avail the help and guidance of technicians that can be possible via the Epson technical support phone number. They will assist you step-by-step to configure IP address of your printer in an efficient manner.

Star micronic sp700 ethernet problem


10.x.x.x subnet can't see 192.x.x.x network. There must be manufacture reset button on the Star micronics sp700?. You can configured your laptop/computer IP to 192.168.2.100 (not the same as printer) than use crossover ethernet cable (you can find it in best buy), connected directly between your laptop and printer, you should be able to see it on your browser now.

Most people big mistake when assigned static ip. First you need to reserve that IP on your router so it doesn't get pickup by DHCP and assigned to another devices.

How do i manually configure and ip address for the mitel 5224 ip phone?


Press and hold the up arrow.
Configure Phone - Yes
network parameters - yes
press no until you see "change" and press yes.
You will need to set the following appropriately.
IP address, Subnet address, default gateway, ICP controller address, TFTP address, VLAN ID, VLAN priority, DiffServe Value, DNS address.

Normally it is not necessary to set the phone static except for testing. If your network and DHCP server is set up properly, you are not gaining any benefit for setting it static.

Also, you should find out what the other IP addressess are that are static on the Voice subnet. Along with that, you will need to know the DHCP range. These are needed so you don't assign a duplicate IP address to your network. Assign the phone to the wrong device could do great harm to your network. Assign it to use the same IP address as the phone system and none of your phones will operate.

Use with caution,
Mark

You can use the netsh command to configure Ip adresses.

1. IP via DHCP:
netsh set address name="MyLocalAreaConnection" source=dhcp

2. static IP:
netsh set address name="MyLocal AreaConnection" source=static addr=192.168.1.61 mask=255.255.255.0 gateway=192.168.1.1

Just a bit of explanation. E0 interface is for inside network (LAN interface). E1 is for outside (ISP or WAN physical interface). Dialer1 is for PPPoE (the "actual"/logical WAN interface). The 1.0.0.13 is ISP provided static IP address for the use of the server. This configuration example is for running FTP server, which uses the standard TCP port 20 and 21.

The LAN uses 10.10.10.0 network with 255.255.255.0 subnet for both servers and workstations. All servers within the LAN use static IP address. The router is configured as DHCP server to give out IP info (IP addresses, subnet mask, DNS) to workstations that are configured as DHCP client.

Basically I suggest that you deploy NAT (Network Address Translation) and PAT (Port Address Translation) to setup your own servers behind Cisco router. The NAT is used to translate the ISP's given static IP address to your local IP address. The PAT is used to translate TCP ports (the port 20 and 21) between the two IP addresses.

When using NAT/PAT, keep in mind that the Internet-accessible servers are seen from the Internet as their NAT/PAT-ed IP address (the Public IP address) and not the local IP address (not the Private IP address). This understanding is very important when you or someone need to test connectivity to the server and/or when you need to create filter (access list or ACL for short) to allow only certain incoming traffic from the Internet and block others.

Side Note:
For more info on NAT/PAT concept, check out the following FAQ
»Cisco Forum FAQ »NAT and PAT; Introduction and Implementations

Instruments used in this illustration are pretty much standard for running your own servers. Please note that IP addresses, username, and password are changed. However, you could always modify the configuration to suit your situation.

This sample configuration assumes that you have a block of IP from ISP. There is a dedicated Public IP address for the router WAN interface (the Dialer1 interface) and another dedicated Public IP address for the server PAT IP address. If you only have a single Public IP address for both router WAN interface and server PAT IP address, there are several ways to configure the router.

One way is to use the same command as shown in sample configuration.

view plaincopy to clipboardprint?
  1. ip nat source static tcp 10.10.10.2 21 1.1.1.14 21 extendable
ip nat source static tcp 10.10.10.2 21 1.1.1.14 21 extendable
This one configuration way is suitable when you have static IP address from your ISP and you know exactly what the IP address is. In this case you have the 1.1.1.14 single static IP address for both the WAN interface and Public server IP address.

When you are unsure which IP address you receive from the ISP, or when your Public IP address keep changing; then another way to configure the static PAT is following

view plaincopy to clipboardprint?
  1. ip nat source static tcp 10.10.10.2 21 interface Dialer1 21 extendable
ip nat source static tcp 10.10.10.2 21 interface Dialer1 21 extendable
With situation of dynamic IP address, at some point you still need to know the exact Public IP address you receive from your ISP for server connection testing and production time. To find out, you can issue show ip interface brief command on the router. You will then see the associated WAN interface Public IP address.

Printer will not print


1. Printing from one computer directly to the printer requires a crossover cable. The reason they are telling you to use a router is so you can use a standard wired cable. You can print direct to the printer from the ethernet port via a crossover cable.
2. On the settings. First, go into the nework settings and turn OFF the auto dhcp. What it is most likely doing it switching the IP address on you. Set that to manual or static, then enter the appropriate IP address.
Set that IP address in the driver under the port configuration.
So in order, can the router unless you are going to run your network through it also. And use a crossover cable to run directly from the conputer to the printer. Then turn off the AUTO on the IP address settings and make the IP address static.
Then print out a configuration page to confirm the IP settings then set the printer up from there.
The crossover cable for direct computer to printer is te key.
Any other questions ask away.

Static config


DHCP is superior to Static IP in every conceivable way. It is not any slower. However, when you FIRST connect to a dynamic ip router, your computer and the router have to handshake a bit, which takes a few seconds.

After that, they are at the identical speed. DHCP shields you from all sorts of trouble like colliding IP addresses, DNS server, subnet masks and gateways. It is way better and more reliable to go with DHCP.

Static ip is only useful if you *need* static ip, e.g. if you want to host a server on your router and you need the computer's dns server to stay the same.

That said, if you still want to use a static ip, here's how:

Simply disable the DHCP server in the router's settings. Also, go into the router's "status" page and take note of the DNS ADDRESS(S). You will need this later.

(Please note, if you disable the dhcp server, the only way to get back into your router and re-enable it is to use static ip on the computer, or to hard reset the router)

Then, you configure each computer connected to the router to use a static IP as opposed to obtaining it automatically. To do this in windows XP:

Go to start->control panel->network connections
Right click on Local Area Connection and go to Properties
Select "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" from the listbox
Click Properties
In the general tab, tick the radio box "Use the following IP address"
Type in the ip adderss you want (e.g. 192.168.0.105)
Type in 255.255.255.0 as the subnet mask
Leave the default gateway blank
Type the ip address of the DNS server you took note of earlier into the "Preferred DNS" section at the bottom of the form.

Click ok and ok and ok until you're out of all the boxes. Your IP is now static, and cross your fingers. If you did everything correct, it will work. If not, check your settings.

Static ip address


It is a ADSL Modem. It should have all ports open. In order to set a EXTERNAL static Ip address, you would have to call up your ISP and ask for a static IP address.
