You most likley have your Local Area Connection TCP/IP settings incorrect.
In windows XP go to > Control Panel > Network Connections > RIGHT CLICK on Local Area Connection > Properties > Click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) > Then properties > Make sure that "Obtain an IP address Automaticly" and "Obtain DNS server automatticly" are checked. Once you make the change, Reboot and you should be good to go.

    Then your device is not handing you a gateway address, are you connecting with a broadband connection (PPPoE) on your computer? What type of connection do you have?

When i type in the into my web browser i just get search results and not a screen with user name and password so i cannot get any further.

THat can mean 3 things

that the router's ip address has changed
The router has lost it's connectivity or lastly
There may be a reset that was performed with the settings of the router,eg : the Encryption key may have been changed and your computer is off the router network.

For Windows:
Press the button with a window symbol on it (from the keyboard)
as well as the letter R at the same time.
A run window will open type in "CMD"
NOW in the black window that opens type in ipconfig and click on the enter button on the keyboard and you scroll through the window page you will get a default gateway that will be your router address if it's or then in the same window type in ipconfig /release(ipconfig ,a space and then release)
wait for about 5 minutes and then type in ipconfig /renew(ipconfig, a space and then renew).
Now type in ipconfig and you should get your default gateway(the ip address) of the printer

Hi, i need the gateway number for the d-link DES1008D can sombody tell me please how to find out the gateway number.


The D-Link DES1008D is an unmanaged switch. Hence it does not have any gateway address and none can be set on it.

If you are looking for the gateway address of your computer, here's how to find it.

In Windows 2000 / XP / Vista / 7, Open command prompt and type in ipconfig

Look for the IP address of the default gateway.



Windows IP Configuration

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . :
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . :
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :

Hope this helps.
