Well first off know one installed a static IP your internet provider is the one that will do that for you when you get ready to go online if there are numbers in there remove them and select automatically detect settings. Most likely it is a Dynamic IP all you have to do is make sure that you have the driver installed for your card, your internet connection cable hooked up R-45 cable and once all of this is happening and lit your IP will do the rest if not then reboot the router or the modem not sure what you have they will send the proper routing goodies over the line and off you go. You just need to make sure that you are lit on your end and ready to go if for some reason nothing else works then contact your internet service provider and they will come out and make sure that you get set up.

Unable to wirelessly connect anymore


Click on the network icon in the task bar. Show the networks available and right click on the wireless network if it shows up. Try the 'repair' network selection.
You can also 'remove' the wireless device and re-install it. If you use the command: "ipconfig /all" it will display all the connections and their settings. Normally windows will use the auto config 192.168.xx.xx series of IP addresses if it cannot find a DHCP server to issue it an address. That should show up in the ipconfig output in the wireless network device section.
If the ipconfig does not show the wireless device, try the uninstall/re-install tactic.
If this is a PC-card [PCMCIA] that you can physically remove, power down, remove the device, power back up. Power down again, install the card, power up. Windows might then 're-find' the device and reinstall all the necessary drivers.

Cannot connect to wireless


You have changed your TCP/IP settings and it cannot communicate with your wireless router.
Open the Control Panel, Click on Network Connections, then right click on Wireless Network Connection, then scroll down and click on to highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), then click on the Properties button.
Select (click on) Obtain an IP address automatically
Select (click on) Obtain DNS server address automatically
Click OK and close and shutdown and reboot Windows

You should now be able to access the Internet

So u can connect to the router, but you arent allowet to access the internet?
The router gave your dell a new ip-number, but it dident gave you access to the net. You ned to do the settings in your router manual, let the router give your dell full access.

Good luck

Astra 2200 scanner won't run with Windows XP?


I have a Umax astra 2200 scanner that I was running on a Windows 98 machine and I was very happy with it. Unfortunately I now own a Dell Dimension E310 with Windows XP and I cannot get the scanner to install/operate properly. Is appears from the specs that the scanner is not compatable with Windows XP, but is there any software upgrade I can download so that I continue to use this scanner with XP?

IP Address


If you click on your "start" button and then on the "run" choice you will be able to type in a command to see your IP address. The command is, ipconfig, a window will appear telling you what the machines IP address is.  Is that what you meant?

How to set a static IP address in Windows behind a Linksys Router


Sorry mate but you have kinda lost me here, if you need a static IP address for the internet you need to contact you isp and they will provide you one, if you want to set your machine to set IP Address just go into properties for local network connection and use somthing like 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0 and leave the dns to obtain. but you wont be able to set a internet static ip address by doing this, only way is to contact your isp.. All the best John
