very confused: default gateway, DCHP and DNS server failure

Q: very confused: default gateway, DCHP and DNS server failure

My desktop computer was not connecting to the internet even though there was a connection. I ran a diagnostic test and it said that my default IP gateway, DCHP server and DNS server all failed. I don't know how to fix this problem so I did several things. I did an ipconfig release/renew in the cmd promt, I manually typed in my ip address, subnet mask and default gateway and i erased and added the same wireless connection and still nothing happened. Then I logged into my router on another computer and changed the data encryption from WPA to WEP so I can get on the internet with my laptop since my laptop did not support WPA encryption and walla I was able to connect to the internet on my desktop. I am not sure how changing the encryption from WPA to WEP has anything to do with a failure from my DNS and DCHP server and default IP gaeway. Can someone explain so I can understand this?

default gateway

It's running Vista 32Bit Home Edition, and I have tried resetting to factory defaults to no avail. Also, I have tried connecting to many networks all ending with the same problem... Any ideas?

Can anyone explain why the first packet is to the default gateway and not the DNS server?

I have a client machine set up
IP 192.168.1.2
default gateway 192.168.1.1
Primary DNS server 192.168.1.53

What confuses me, is when I clear the NetBIOS and DNS cache, and then try to ping another computer on my network by name,
eg 'ping computer2'

The first packet sent is a DNS packet, requesting the IP of computer2.mydomain.com
But it is sent to the default gateway

The next packet is the same but sent to the IP I have said is the DNS server, this the packet I expected to see first.

Can anyone explain why the first packet is to the default gateway and not the DNS server?

Hope that is the only required information. If you think you can answer, with more information, just ask.

Hi,
I have been having some trouble with my internet for awhile now. It fine one second and than it will get really slow and eventually stop working. When I troubleshoot to see what the problem is it either gives me DNS server is not responding or default gateway is not available, sometimes it will give me both. It says it fixes the default gateway problem but it will show up again 5 minutes later. If someone could help me that would be awesome

Correct me if I'm wrong

(Working with old computer, getting it to work)
I was having problems with re-installing Windows XP and SP1-3 updates, and connecting to internet.and getting DNS errs.
Went into ipconfig, and had no default gateway

So, I eventually found my way to windows error reports,doing a search:
for "setuperr"

Turns out the "computer name" had errors in it with non-allowed characters.
Went into Control Panel, clicked on System, did the fix.
No underlines, etc. allowed

Looking into setuperr logs is really helpful, dont ya think?

Sometimes I have internet connection for a few seconds, if I'm lucky maybe three minutes. I can get two different messages when I run the Windows Troubleshooting option: "DNS server isn't responding" or "The default gateway is not available." This has been going on about a week. I have not made any changes to my laptop, not even a Windows update, or a driver update, or anything like that.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L655 laptop. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. I live in a rural area that does not have home telephone or internet lines, so I access the internet using a 3G data card. There is only one small spot in my house that receives a signal so I have a Zoom Travel Router that I plug the data card into and then use my computer in a different room in the house. This setup has been working great for almost two years.

Below is the coding in the ipconfig file. It's pretty short. The default gateway is the ip address for the Zoom Router as provided in the User Manual. I talked to my ISP provider and they said they could only help me if I plugged the data card directly into the computer. They could not or would not help me if I used a Wifi router.

If you tell me I need to make changes to the ipconfig file, then you will have to tell me how to do that. I'm not afraid to make changes, I'm just not techie enough that I know how to do it.

Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated. I hate being without the internet.

Hello.

On my W2K server I have two NIC's, one for the external connection to the internet, and one for the internal connection to my workstation. I was messing around (computers and beer, bad...) so I'm not sure what I've done, but here are the details.

On the internal NIC I've specified an ip of 198.162.255.1, a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 and a default gateway of 198.162.255.1 (I'm assuming the default gateway, because the server is cabled directly to the workstation, is the IP of the server.). Using a default gateway that matches the IP of the server was working, but now when I ipconfig the default gateway is blank. Furthermore, when I ipconfig on the workstation, it picks up an IP from DHCP, but again the gateway is blank. The workstation and server cannot communicate other than the workstation grabbing the IP address.

Can anyone make any suggestions that might lead to a resolution? I'm fresh out of ideas.

Thanks in advance.
Kevin

I have one Linksys router serve as a default gateway (192.168.0.1).
But now I want my another linksys WRT54G (192.168.0.5) to be the DHCP server, not the Gateway.
The DHCP works, but once the computers get the IP from the DHCP server, the gateway shown is 192.168.0.5.

Is there any way to make it the DHCP server not the default gateway?
How to or what to set at the WRT54G so that the default gateway will be 192.168.0.1?

This is the diagram showing my network.

Hey,

So I'm somewhat of an idiot when it comes to computers, and I'm having quite a hard time here.

I currently have 3 laptops running on a D-Link DIR-615 wireless router.

2 of them are running fine, but the 3rd one can't connect to the Internet. Well, sometimes it will for a few seconds, but most of the time, it will time out, and Internet's always dropped.

When I ran a Intel PROset/Wireless Manual Diagnostic, all the test pass except for the Ping Test. Sometimes, it will say "Response: Default Gateway, No Response: DHCP server", although most of the times, both have no response.

Here's the interesting thing: I have the laptop for about 6 weeks now. At the beginning, it worked perfectly well. After 4 weeks, Internet kept crashing. Did a system restore, and Internet worked for a few days ...then, out of the blue, started crashing again, and now I can't connect ever (even though I always show a strong signal reception on my icon).

I have no idea what to do here. I've been going through forums, tried the following:

- Changing wireless channel
- TCP/IP stack repair options
- Calling Dell (what a joke that was...)

I just don't understand why one laptop doesn't connect (even though it did 3 weeks ago without problem) and the 2 other ones work great ...my roomates are getting tired of me borrowing their laptops, so I need to figure this out!

Is yours farther from the router than the others? Have you installed the newest driver for the wireless adaptor?

Lets take a peek at your network environment:

First:

Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.

Then:

Remove all the stored wireless network profiles and search for the network again.

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if found here's how.

Then:

At the > prompt type type the following command: IPCONFIG /ALL


Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter. Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

Hello, I am having a somewhat bizarre, extremely frustrating issue. I can connect to the internet via wireless just fine, and everything will be hunky-dory for a while. After a while, however (this varies anywhere from a day to a week), there will be a small hiccup on the connection, and then something fails in the Acquiring Network Address stage. My computers will get an IP, but they will not get the default gateway or DNS server.

I say computers because this happens on both my PC and laptop. This issue does NOT, however, occur for anyone else in the household.

I have tried a plethora of fixes, from simple computer reboots to fiddling with all sorts of settings, and nothing works to reestablish the connection. My father has also tried fixing it, to no avail. I have to go and reset my router, which also interrupts TV service, because it is through AT&T U-Verse. Needless to say, this does not make other people in the household very happy, and I really shouldn't have to be resetting my router every couple of days like that.

My PC uses a Netgear WG111v3 adapter and is Windows XP. My laptop has on-board Wifi and is Windows XP Professional. I am not sure why I am the only person in the household that experiences this issue. Could certain programs like AIM be causing problems?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

I have a small network with a multi-homed server. The 1st NIC on the server has an IP address of 192.168.2.1 and the default gateway was set to 192.168.2.7. The Second NIC card has an IP of 10.0.2.7 and no default gateway given. The client PC's are configured for DHCP, and when they log in, are successfully given an IP address and the default gateway I assigned on the first card.
However, here is where my problem lies:
The server can ping both cards
The clients can only ping the 1st card.
Neither the Server or clients can ping the default gateway.

I have RIP installed, and IP Forwarding marked, so I can't understand why the default gateway is not working.

Anyone know anything on this?
 

A:{Solved} - Unable to Ping Default Gateway on Multi-homed Server

Greetings

Ok... since you have not given all the information, let me make a guess at what it is:

192.168.2.7 = IP address of a router to the rest of the world
10.0.2.x = Internal network

Ok... here is the problem:

You have given the client's the IP address of the router as their router... however, it is NOT on their network.

This is what you need to do:

Change the default gateway settings on the client's machines to the IP address 10.0.2.7 (and add the 198.168.2.1 address as the default gateway on the server).

So... this is how the routing works. I am on a client machine, and I want to talk to the world. I send my packet to my Default gateway (the server). The server then routes it from itself (on the 10.x.x.x network) to that network card's default gateway (the NIC on the 192.168.x.x network). It then goes from that NIC to that NIC's default gateway, 192.168.2.7, and out to the world.

I hope this helps

My roomates computer has an issue that I have not been able to solve all week. here's the gist of it. The computer connects wireless, and is able to get an IP from router. I can ping the router, and other computers on the network. All other comupters on network are able to access the internet.

One thing that is happening is the DHCP Service keeps stopping on me. I've perused the posts on here looking for answer's. Here's a list of all I've done.

Disabled then enabled wireless adapter
uninstall/reinstall wireless adapter
manually set IP address
repaired winsock/winsock2 entries using LSPFix.exe and "netsh winsock reset" command (elevated to admin)
ran virus scan (AVG 8.0.169) with no hits
ran AD-aware SE (1 hit, removed, did not solve issue)
ran RegCure with 999 hits, cleaned, did not solve problem
Try'd to do a "system restore"..but the computer couldn't do it (hard drive has 6% free space)

I'd give a screenshot of the error, but its on another comp. Here's what it says:

"Host Process for Windows Services stopped working and was closed. A problem caused the application to stop working correctly. Windows will notify you if a solution is available."

Any help is appreciated.

Hey,

Before continuing, this is a thread that I currently have going, if you want extra details on what's been going on. I'll try to explain it quickly here:

My laptop won't connect to wireless Internet. Doesn't matter where I am, so it's not a router problem.
I've tried many things (can be seen on the other thread), and still can't get wireless Internet connection.

Before I go any further, I'm not great with computers, so any instructions, please, eaassyyy!

Now the weird thing is, when I'm in Safe Mode with networking, Internet seems to be working fine!
As you can see in the title, my Ping test is showing something is wrong.

I have no idea what to do here. I've been going through forums, tried the following:

- Changing wireless channel
- TCP/IP stack repair options
- Calling Dell (what a joke that was...)
- ran an ipconfig /all (see on the other thread through my forum link)
- removed Mcafee (using Windows Essentials), and when I did that, Internet worked for 5-10mins then crashed again.
- checked the Mac filtering settings on my router settings

Also, my computer crashed the other day (got a blue screen, shut itself down). I posted the details in the thread.

I'm not sure how many people here are familiar with Server 2003, but I'm struggling...

I am attempting to set up the server with the DHCP role. Are there any other "roles" that I need to install before DHCP will work? I have set the scope (192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.20) and I have "reserved" the 192.168.0.1 address to the server itself (using its MAC address as required). Nothing with it seems to be working. NONE of the computers on my network (4) are not getting IP addresses.

I really need to get this working so that I can start sharing my internet connection (using the "Remote Access/VPN Server" role -- NAT)

What am I doing wrong?

I've got 2 laptops and a desktop, the desktop and the one laptop connect wirelessly to the internet perfectly but i'm at my wits end with the other laptop. It finds the wireless network but then gives "limited or no connectivity"

I can't get it to assign an IP address properly. if i go to run > cmd > ipconfig then i get and autoconfiguration IP of 169.254.201.30 and a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0 with the rest blank. Am i right in thinking an ip starting 169 is a personal one and it should really start with 192 as the others do?

I have tried cmd > ipconfig/release and then ipconfig/renew but then get "An error occurred while renewing interface Wireless Network Connection 5 : unable to contact your dchp server. Request has timed out"

I have tried restarting everything to no avail and have tried ispfix.exe and winsockxpfix but sadly no joy there either.

Basically i'm stumped and would be willing to give any ideas a go.

Thanks in advance

James

A:Can't get an IP address from DCHP server, HELP!!!!!

You say other computers on the network have connected successfully? If that is the case, please go to the working computer and open command prompt.

ipconfig

Identify your IP Address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway.

With that being said; go to the computer with the issue and copy that information into...

1) Control Panel
2) Network Connections
3) Right Click Wireless connection, Properties
4) Go to the General tab, scroll down to 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
5) Highlight it and click properties.
5) Select 'Use the following IP address'
6) Fill in the blanks. Make sure you change the IP Address
-example; if you have 192.168.1.3, change it to 192.168.1.20 so there are no IP conflict issues on the network.
7) Leave 'Obtain DNS server address automatically'
8) Okay
9) Close.

Sorry if you already knew how to assign a Static IP address, I just assume the worst with everyone. Let me know how that goes.

Trying to create two seperate VLANs on a switch and have them use the same Windows 2008 DHCP server.

Example: VLAN1 - 192.168.1.0 /24
VLAN2 - 192.168.2.0 /24

What does the client on VLAN1 send to the DHCP server so that it knows to pull an address from 192.168.1.0 and not 192.168.2.0?
 

A:Two Seperate VLANs 1 DCHP Server.

You need to set up a DHCP relay between VLANs to direct the DHCP address broadcasts to the DHCP server outside of the client's VLAN. If you want the switch to do this you'll need to invoke a feature called an IP Helper. One thing to verify is if you need to have a layer 3 switch to gain this feature. I'm pretty positive you do because of how IP Helper works.

Guru's,

I have an intermittent internet connection drop that I have been unable to get rid of. I have searched the internet for possible fixes and attempted some to no avail. So I am surrendering my pride and asking for professional help:

ISP: Comcast

Modem: Motorola Surfboard SB5101U Cable Modem

Wireless Router: Belkin N150

Issue: Loss of internet functionality

Connected Wireless Devices: Nintendo Wii, Mobile Laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate, mobile phones x2, Samsung Blu-Ray Player.

Connected Ethernet Devices from Belkin router: Xbox 360, Direct TV reciver.

Possible helpful information: On occasion during the internet loss I will receive a windows message on my laptop that states there are duplicate IPs causing a problem.

A:Possible DCHP Server Conflict between modem and router.

you cant disable it from the modem because the modem is simply that... just a device that connects you to the internet. There is no router within the 5101 modem so there will be no DHCP in there. If you had a Motorola SBG900/901/6580, then it would

The issue you are having is with the router, or your devices connecting to it. Your 'DHCP Server' is the router.

Make sure that ALL connecting devices are on automatically obtain IP addresses. Also make sure that ALL connecting devices has different host names.

With the devices that has no internet, check the IP address at that time.

If all the devices have different host names, and set to automatic, then shut down ALL equipment, including cell phones and DirectTV that is connected.

Then one by one turn on each device; first the modem, then router then the connecting devices. DO NOT turn on the connecting devices at the same time. Let them boot up first then go to the next device and so forth.

EDIT: one last thing: if everything we do fails, then the router will need to be reset to defaults as there may be some setting in there that causing this issue.

Hello I'm having issues with router leasing ips outside the the gateways range.

Example Gateway ip is 192.168.0.1 and it is trying to lease out the range of 192.168.1.xxx, I'm not sure why it is doing this as the dchp server range is set in 192.168.0.xxx

Multiple router setup in house/garage room type setup line runs out here and I have my own router. Only have been noticing this problem past couple days so I reset the main router1(dlink gamerlounge) then setup the ip back to 192.168.0.1 and reset my other router2(netgear wgr 614v4)

Noticed I had to unplug router2 before I could re-setup router1, after that I just plugged it back in and everything appears find for me except I'm still noticing its leasing some devices the wrong ip.

Anybody know whats wrong is one of them faulty or overheating or something, the routers are pretty old.

Hello, I have read a few similar posts and the resolutions but it doesn't appear to be working for me. Any help is appreciated. I apologize if I am leaving out any important info.

I'm running a Windows XP PC, wired to a Verizon FIOS modem/router, model MI424WR. I have a second computer connected via wire to this and a third computer connected wirelessly. As of 2 hours ago and for months, all 3 machines have worked fine.

My PC froze while playing a game and I reset it. This is not common but it has happened before without issue upon start up. However this time I received a limited/no connectivity message. When repair was attempted it didn't work because "the network did not assign a network address to the computer". The 2nd and 3rd PC work fine though.

Back on my first PC, when I view the details there is a physical address, IP address, and subnet mask, BUT there is no Default Gateway, DNS Server, or WINS Server.

I have tried the other suggestions I read about RESET TCP/IP stack and RESET WINSOCK entries then restarting my machine but neither of these worked.

Under device manager my NVIDEA nForce networking adapter says it is working properly and there isn't any red X or yellow indicators.

The only weird thing I saw which i have not seen discussed here is when I run IPCONFIG /ALL: It says IP Routing enabled: NO and WINS Proxy enabled: NO.

I was infected(and still might be) with the storm worm about 2 weeks back. It wouldn't let me open my email, my ISP was calling telling me I had a virus(though they offer no assistance). After 2 days of running scan after scan & using various programs I thought it was all cleaned.

Fast forward to today...I had uploaded some new files last night to my web server. I visit the site today that I had uploaded the files to and low and behold it tells me it has a virus!

I looked at the FTP dates & the last I had uploaded files was yesterday(10/10) yet it was showing a few files as being modified today(10/11). I downloaded the files & saw that attached to the bottom was a line of code, an iframe to be exact, with a URL to a site that was trying to download the infected files.

This URL as far as I know is part of the storm virus (do not try to go there) y x b e g a n d o t c o m

I talked with my web host & they said that it had to be on my end since the server can't get infected...because its a Linux server.

So my question then is how did the file get modified? Since I'm 99% sure the file was modified AFTER I uploaded it then how can that happen? I doubt the server was hacked in order to add it to a few random files.

The files on my end did not have the code before I uploaded them...the only 'new' thing I uploaded besides PHP files was wordpress...is that known to have any holes when it comes to the storm worm?

Default Gateway is not Available I know there are lots of other posts with this same issue, but i still cant seem to figure out what the solution is. The internet on my laptop only works intermittently. After a minute or so of initial use, it stops working and when I run the troubleshooter it discovers that the default gateway is not available, and then it says that it has fixed the problem. However, after only a minute or so more, the internet once again fails. I have tried the "run>cmd>enter>ipcongfig>enter" and found that the numbers for the default gateway are the same on my laptop as for a laptop that does work. So what is going on?

A:Default Gateway

Sharing information between machines is app-layer functionality which is entirely dependent on network and transport-layer connectivity. In other words, don't bother troubleshooting sharing and workgroups until you've ensured the network is all hooked up.

There is very little info in your post and that makes it almost impossible to give you much info in return, but make sure that:

1) you've completely disabled all software firewalls on the machines in question while you're troubleshooting. You don't need a firewall skewing your ping results by potentially blocking ICMP.

2) ping works between any machine to any other machine. Once the firewalls have been disabled, pinging is your primary test of network connectivity.

If you describe your network - including IP address ranges and the reasons for disparate gateways - it may be possible to give you more specific routing advice.

Where should I start? What information do yous need to help me?

A:"The default gateway is not available."

The first step would be to go to another network and see if the connection is a problem there.
If not, then it's your network.
If it is, then it's a problem with your computer.
 
For starters, try updating your wireless drivers - both for the donge and for the laptop's card
Are you able to reset your router?
Does your router have a password (other than the one that it came with)?
If not, then set it to a new password - then reset the router to default settings - then check the DNS settings (to make sure it's something that's OK - not a hijack)

Hello,

I've recently begun encountering connectivity problems. Seemingly randomly, the wifi connection becomes limited and webpages/games time out. Whenever I repair the connection it is always at the "reset wi-fi adapter" step that it seems to resolve the issue.

Steps I've taken thus far are:

uncheck the box under my network adapters settings that said "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"show hidden devices under the network adapter device manager and try to uninstall all but my ethernet and wifi connections. aside from these two connections I wanted to keep, there were two bluetooth devices that I don't use/need, two adapters hidden with odd names, and quite a few WAN miniports. I tried uninstalling all of these...some uninstalled, others uninstalled but came back with a restart, and some wouldn't uninstall at all

I'm not even sure if any of this is actually helping my own issue; I simply tried to do some research before reaching out for help myself...and these seemed to be common steps that were suggested from folks on this very forum.

Anyway, below is my ipconfig:

A:Default gateway not available

You'll fix it.

Install latest wireless driver from Ultrabook, SmartPhone, Laptop, Desktop, Server, & Embedded? Intel if not already latest now, update security software to latest version if not already, update router firmware to latest if not already, then use Vistumbler to see which channel is the most open and clear, away from other channels. Set your router radio channel to that.

You could lower the beacon interval some, in the router settings. I keep mine at 50 ms.

RTS Threshold = 2307
Fragmentation = 2306

Microwave ovens and home wireless phones (not smart phone type - landline type) can interfere. Move your router away from those if possible.

Make sure nobody is sitting outside your house in a car trying to do a man-in-the-middle attack (a.k.a. monkey-in-the-middle) on the wireless, lol.

I recently got a new laptop and ever since, the internet goes in and out. Most of the time it is not out long enough to display the no connectivity icon or stop music from streaming but it is noticeable. When I run the troubleshooter it says that the default gateway is unavailable. I tried manually setting the connection information but the same thing keeps happening except the troubleshooter then says that DHCP is not enabled. I've disabled every firewall I can find and updated all the drivers available. Hopefully someone has a suggestion that I haven't come across yet. Here is my info:

Periodically, I drop internet everywhere around my college's campus. I'm literally four feet from a router, but it doesn't seem to matter. I'll disconnect, run troubleshooter, and I'll get the error message saying that the default gateway is not available. My college is designed for Macs, but I'm running Windows 7. My Mac colleagues do not experience problems. Any ideas? The computer works at home and at nearly every other wireless network I've brought it in range of. Other windows users do not all experience the same problem, but those who do experience the problem all have windows computers. Specifically, either IBM or Dell. Specs are below. Any help would be much appreciated.

Dell XPS 15
i7-2720QM
8gb Ram
Windows 7 Home Premium SP 1
