Re: IP config Address
By the above description Im not able to see what your exact issue is except that you cant get on the net. If you turned the power off on all of your equipment and restarted it and it didn't work then try running System Restore.
To start System Restore, click Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.
After clicking the above menu options to start System Restore choose "Restore my computer to an earlier time" and click Next.
On the next screen, in section one, choose the most recent bolded date before the issue started. Then in section two, look for the System Checkpoint or the latest entry for that date and select it then click Next.
On the Confirm Restore Point Selection screen make sure that you selected the point you want and click next.
After that your computer will restart and verify that the machine has been restored. Next, see if you have corrected the issue.
If not, let me know what equipment you have connectedand what error you receive then Ill try to give more specific instructions.
Please remember to rate the information that you have received.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

In order for you to have internet access please note of the following: 1. You have Internet service provider 2. Have the modem box provided by your ISP plugged in to the wall jack with the telephone cord came with the box. 3. Connect your modem to your computer with the yellow cord came with the box. 4. Make sure to have your username and password given to you by your ISP in order for you to configure your modem. 5. Check the light status of the box make sure that dsl light is steady green, lan light steady green, internet light might be in steady red or off since its not uet configured. 6. Access configuration of your modem from you computer using the IP address. You can find the IP address at the bottom part of the modem. If you cant locate Ip Address perform this: from your computer go to start menu then go to run then type CMD and press enter. A black window will come up and from that window type in ipconfig then press enter. It will provide you the IP address that looks like this 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.0. Get that IP address and type in to the Inrnet explorer address bar and hit enter. 7. It will ask you to login from there type in the username and password normally the default config of the modem is the credential like username is admin and the password is either admin also. 8. From the modem config page run through the steps and that's it... if you have questions or concern please send me message for me to assist you further.
Plug LAN cables or turn ON Wifi. Enter Run command or type cmd. on the command prompt screen ( black it is ) type: ipconfig /release enter next type: ipconfig /renew enter
type exit NOTE: if the problems still remains,which means the router use a STATICip eg.192.168.1.5 ( CONFIG INTERNET PROTOCOL TCP/IP = ip address : 192.168.1.5 subnet mask :255.255.255.0 default gateway : 192.168.0.8 )
when you say ip/config you mean wifi properties and internet protocol properties right ?
if so select obtain ip address auto and select obtain dns auto.
if thats not what you mean...goto control panel ..open network connections...click on ur network connection ...in the list at left select change settings for this connection...in network properties scroll to internet protocol..double click to open..select obtain ip auto and obtain dns auto.
there are other ways to fill in fields but you need relevant info..
there are programs which can show u ip's but most require a special driver.
incidently if you choose ip and dns auto you will not see ip address but when connecting to network you will see aquiring ip address please wait.
if for some reason you still cant connect go to a place where you know have free internet access and connect there then net connection will be configured
1. extend the dhcp leasing function within the router by increasing the time for the lease, usually this is in minutes
2. manually assign the ip address so ud ont have this problem ever again
3. renew the ip address via xbox 360
4. it could just mean the xbox live server is temp down.
To get into the web configuration you need to know your firmware on the DPR-1260. If it is 1.12, us http://dlinkps-xxxxxx where the X's are the last 6 number of the mac address. If it is 1.20 and up, use http://dlink-xxxxxx, where the x's are the last 6 number of the mac address. If you do set it up as DHCP or static and know the ip address of the print server just type in the ip address of the print server on the address bar.
This is because the router is using a NAT firewall and the computers on the router are behind this firewall. You can fix it but only one computer is able to go on the other side of the firewall to play an Internet game or videoconference at a time. To do this you will need to use the DMZ settings in the router set up screen. First you will need to find out the IP address of the computer you want to put in the DMZ. In Win95/98 and ME click on Start and click on Run. Here type "winipcfg" and push Enter. This will bring up the IP configuration screen. In the drop down box choose the network card that you are using with the router. Here it should give you an IP in the 192.168.2.xxx range. Remember or write down that IP address and close the IP config window. In Win2000 and Win XP click Start go to Program and to Accessories. In there choose Command Prompt and type IPCONFIG at the DOS prompt. Remember or write down that IP address and close the IP config window. Now open you Internet browser and put in the router IP address, it should be 192.168.2.1, in the address bar. Log into the router and from the main screen click on Initial setup off to the left. On the next screen choose DMZ. Here you will need to click enable and type in the last digits of the IP address you just recorded earlier into the box there. Click the Enter button at the bottom to save that setting. You should now be able to use videoconferencing and Internet games. Remember to come back into the Router setup screen and disable the DMZ so that your computer can once again be put behind the firewall so it can be protected.
