Hi, im running RoadRunner with a wireless G broadband linksys router for my wireless network, and i want to assign a specific Ip adress. My ultimate goal is change my 3rd number to anything divisable by 8, and the last number to be 0(the first and second don't matter to me). I've already tried going into the router setup, and changing my MAC address, but when i save the settings, i loose internet connection, and i have to reset it back to the original to even get connection again.

Also, i am using a router, if that matters.

Any help would be much appreciated!
Thanks

Can someone tell me how to assign a Static IP address. We cannot get my hubby's computer to connect to the internet...which is weird because in a year we have never had this problem before...
 

A:Assigning an IP address

Are you on a network and trying to assign a network IP?

If not, you will need to pay your ISP for a static IP.

While maintaining a closed network of entirely static IP address assigned hosts, one computer always reports "The static IP address that was just configured is already in use on the network. Please reconfigure a different IP address." no matter which IP address is assigned to the computer.

I am trying to install a modem on my new computer. I installed the drivers from the correct disk (finally) but the modem still has a problem. I looked at Properties for it, and under Resources it says "This device isn't using any resources because it is not correctly enabled or has a problem. If you want to assign resources manually for this device, click set configuration manually." Did that. Under "conflicting device list" is the following:
Memory Range 00000000-00000FFF used by:
System board extension for ACPI BIOS
Input/output range 0000-00FF used by:
Motherboard resources
Input/Output range 0000-00FF used by:
Standard 101/102 key or Microsoft Natural Keyboard

I don't know how to deal with this.

Looked around in the BIOS CMOS setup and noticed this:

In "PnP/PCI configurations" it says "resources controled by AUTO (ESCD)

In "Intergrated Periperals" is >Via On-Chip PCI Device then >Via-3068 MC97 Modem disabled

And in "Power management setup" it says "Modem use IRQ 3"

I don't know what all this means, but was looking for anything to do with resources or modems. Can anyone guide me? Thanks!

mother board: Via Technologies P4M 266-8233
BIOS Phoenix Technologies 6.00PG

A:assigning resources for modem?

If you are using windows 2000 or XP , can't assign resources via the Resource tab. Only way to do it is in the BIOS.
If you happen to have an onboard modem then under the Integrated Peripherals go ahead and enable it. On the other hand if you have an stand alone modem ( and i assume that you have one since you are trying to install one ) , go ahead and move the modem one slot down or up , in any case, do not put the modem in the first PCI slot next to AGP card.

Now if you have windows 98 installed ( since there is no mention about the OS installed ) , can use the Resources tab and Manually change the resources.

Hi All,
I've a question about networking. I'm the unofficial tech guy at my wifes small rural school, and I come from the school of hard knocks, as computers are a hobby, not my livelihood. I'm taking care of 16 computers in 5 different rooms all networked to a T1 and Cisco 2600.

Occasionally, a computer will refuse to connect to the network. Sometimes the, "can't assign auto IP address" error comes up, sometimes not. When I bring the 'puters home, they hook right up to my cable modem\Linksys Router\24 Port hub setup and I'm on the intra and internet. At school they can't reconize or be seen on the network either. I went into the room with the Cisco router\and other foreign equipment, turned off the router and turned it back on (30 secs), with no results. Could it be the small hub (reset it also) that goes from the wall (in each room) to the 5 or so computers networked? Does anyone think that its at the county office? Is there a switch they can throw to clear whatever the problem is? Is it something else in the Cisco room that needs reset?

Thanks for listening to my frustrated rant.

I use my Lenovo twist for work. From time to time I have to assign a static IP address to my network card based on the customer premise. What I have found is that if I do a ipconfig from the command line, these static ip addresses are not released.
If I assign ip1, then customer site ip2, customer site ip3, all three ip addresses will show up doing an ipconfig from the command line. From time to time, this also plays havoc with my wireless network card.
The only way I have been able to resolve the issue is to remove the device(s) and reboot.
Upon reboot, both devices are back to dhcp and normal.

Hi, I am trying to give an static ip address to a time clock on my network and for some reason when I connect time clock to network it will always get an ip address from a different network. for example my computer IP address is 192.168.2.70 when connected to network, my default gateway is 192.168.2.1, the IP address that the time clock always gets is 192.168.1.120, there is no way to tell the time clock what IP address I wanted to be it has to get it from router (that is what the manufacturer told me), router (16portLiksys) does not have DHCP enabled the guy who set up network left it disabled, on his notes he says server (dell server T110) is acting as router is that true that a server can be acting as router?
what do guys think is going on here?
all the computers hooked up to network have static IP address.
I also notice that when I connect a computer to router it will get an IP address from different network the same as time clock.
I tried to reserve ip address on router by entering MAC address from time clock but it won't work. I am not very familiar with the server settings I have not try changing settings on server, I am not even sure the guy who set up network is right about using server as router.
Advice please
thank you

Hi, I am trying to connect to xbox live through my laptop using an ethernet cable. Ok, the trouble I am having is this:

I am using a windows laptop connected to a wireless network using a router.
The routers Ip address is 192.168.0.1
When I try to turn on internet connection sharing, I get the error message:

An error message occurred while ICS was being enabled. A LAN is already configured with the Ip address that is required for automatic ip addressing....

Now what i believe to be happening is that for some reasons Laptops assign 192.168.0.1 by defualt when trying to share a connection using ICS. Now when I change the routers Ip to 192.168.1.1 I can get xbox live working, so I know this is the problem. Unfortuneatly, Im not allowed to change the routers IP address as im living in shared accomadations and others dont want the router ip address changed. So changing the router address is not an option.

What I want to know is how can i change my laptops setting so that it doesnt automatically assign ip addresses 192.168.0.1? Thanks, (I hope all this made sense!)

Hi Everyone,

I have a strange networking situation. Let me start by saying this situation is on a Domain, and that I am using Windows 2011 SBS and Windows 7 clients.

My server has a DHCP range of 192.x.x.150 to 192.x.x.199 - and all other I.P. addresses are static.

On a workstation located at I.P. 192.x.x.13 I am seeing an address conflict.





When I perform an "nbtstat -a 192.x.x.13" command from the server I am given the logical computer name of a staff members personal laptop.



Investigation of the laptop reveals that it is set to DHCP, and clearly the address of 192.x.x.13 is outside of my servers DHCP scope, so this I.P. should never be assigned, let alone in duplicate.

I Googled this topic before posting, and it was suggested that IPv6 could be having an adverse affect. I determined this because I performed a ping on the laptop and only got a MAC address back rather than an I.P. address.

However after unticking IPv6, and rebooting, the laptop is still causing havoc.

I can set a static I.P. address on the laptop, however this is not ideal.

If anybody knows of any way that I can stop this from happening it will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Hi Everyone,

Further to my earlier post here is a screen shot of both ipconfig & Control Panel settings on the Laptop:



I have actually managed to fix this by -

1). Changing the IPv4 settings to static - and assigning the address in question (e.g.192.x.x.13)
2). Subsequently changing the IPv4 settings back to "Obtain an IP address automatically"

The laptop now reports an I.P. address of 192.x.x.174 (Preferred), which is actually within the DHCP scope of my Server!

I have a Linksys RT31P2 router which seems to be acting funny. What happens is it randomly seems to assign my pc different IP addresses. I have it set to hand out a max of 50 addresses (100 - 149) and my pc has always been .100, but for some reason yesterday it assigned it .134. It's really annoying because several of my programs need ports forwarded to work and having to change them in my router is tedious and unnecessary. Anyone know why this is happening?

the Set-up: 2 desktops The one im on now is hooked up wirelessly! The one im having problems with is the other one and its hard wired. I have a router, and obviously one is hard wired (not assigning an address, and the other one is wireless and runs fine.

Solutions already tried:

Got a new nic card, installed it, had problems with it even being compatable with window media center addition (the technician said). That doesnt work

download winstock, did that

called the cable company, they reset their modem and they told me that "our modem detects your router but not your computer when directly plugged into the modem" So its not a router problem

All the cords work fine from the router to the modem so i used the same cords to the modem directly to the computer, no connection.

DCHP, works fine

everything is set to automatic

im ripping my hair (not to mention waisting a lot of valuable time getting back to normal)

i could use some help please. i just want my computer to make an address so other computers can read it.

When you manually enter in the IP information , can you ping other local computers by IP address.

Can you ping the IP address of the gateway (router)

I have two computers connected to a Linksys Etherfast Hub and my DSL modem attatched to that and both computers keep assigning themselves the same IP address from DHCP. Then they both display the "There is an IP address conflict with another computer on the network." This is a problem, obivously, because neither can then connect to the internet or each other like that. Sometimes though, one will connect and the other wont get an IP address. I've done the whole release/renew and they either both get the same IP or one fails and the other is successful.

When I connect just one computer to the hub or straight to the modem, it correctly gets IP/DNS and such and connects to the internet just fine. I bought a new Switch to replace the hub but it has the same problem. Which leads me to believe it is one or both computers that are the culprits. One is a computer I built a few years ago and the other is a week old Compaq. Both are running Windows XP Pro SP2. I have not manually assigned an IP address.

Any ideas?

Hello!I was hoping to get some help here! I'm at the end of my rope with this problem.I'm working on a friend's computer. They were getting the Cannot display this webpage error screen for IE 7 on XP.They are on dial-up, that is all they can get besides satellite internet. We live in a rural area. I'm on satellite, but they don't want to pay the $60 bucks a month for that. But their computer is connecting to the server, it just won't bring up webpages.But, anyway, I've been trying to get it to load IE pages and have tried a million different things. Did all those simple things that Microsoft suggests about clearing the history and all that.Now the webpages will load fine when I hook their computer up to my satellite internet connection with a router. I hook the dial-up back up, and it doesn't work again.I checked the settings in the TCP/IP and the DNS servers and it is checked to automatically detect and assign a number, but it doesn't seem to work. But, I decided to try to assign a primary and secondary number using a university's numbers that I got off the web and it works then. Go back to automatically assign a number, and it doesn't work. So, seems to be something going on there.Any suggestions?THANKS![size="5"]

So I have been knocking my head on this for a few hours now, and I am without a clue as to how to proceed. I have two computers, both win Win XP. A cable modem (Time Warner), and a Linksys BEFW11S4 v4 router (out of date, but i'm cheap).

The issue is that my wireless network is not giving an IP address to my laptop. I am getting fine reception and signal strength, but i am getting the error message Little to No Connectivity, "you might not be able to access the internet or some network resources. This problem occured because the network did not assign a network address to the computer". When clicking on details, it shows me the physical address, ip address, and subnet mask all filled in, while the default gateway, DNS server and WINS server are all blank. I have both the router and laptop set up to auto give/receive IP addresses.

OK, I?m a little weak on networks so here?s my issue?.

I have a Linksys router E3000 which works well for my small network which currently consists of two desktops, mine (wired), and the family desktop (wireless).

Anyway it seems the router dynamically assigns an IP address to the family desktop every so often which is a pain when using remote desktop. In short Remote Desktop can?t find the family desktop because the IP address keeps changing.

Incidentally I never had this particular issue with my older Linksys router - WRT54GS V1.1

So how do I set it so that the family desktop?s IP address stays static? I?m sure there?s a simple fix but I seem to be missing the boat.

Thanks.

Hey everyone.

I've ran into a problem that I can't quite figure out. My internet connection shows 'no internet access' even though my ISP shows the connection is coming into the house just fine. I usually use a router (NetGear-WNR3500U) but I right now I have the Ethernet connection plugged directly into my PC. I tried directly plugging into my laptop and the internet works just fine. So I know the problem resides in the PC.

Some troubleshooting things I have tried.
-Power cycled my modem, router and PC.
-Repinged my connection from my ISP(Comcast Xfinity)
-Used the reset option on the router and the modem
-I was walked through the internet options needed with the tech support from my ISP to make sure DHCP was enabled and every other setting was correct, and he cleared me that all settings were correct.
-Tried ipconfig commands to /renew and /release my IP
When I tried ipconfig /renew I get the error 'An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection : unable to contact your DHCP server'

-Restored my PC to a restore point where the Internet was working

All of these options did not work.

What I think the problem is and I am not sure how to fix it, when I run the ipconfig /all command my Auto configuration IPv4 Address shows 169.254.112.76 which I was told is a router IP address even though I am plugged directly from the modem to my PC with an Ethernet cord. So I think that's my problem? But I am not sure.

That would be your ISPs' address, the router would probably be 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 so, in the properties, advanced button for the ipv4 of your adapter, make sure both settings are on auto, and add the correct router address in the gateway box.

I have a wireless network with a cable internet connection. I recently opened the computer to reseat my heatsink/fan and all worked well afterward. A few days later suddenly I got the message that there was little or no connection to the internet and the reason given was thet the netwoek did not assign an IP address to the computer. I clicked "repair" and got the same message and said "the problem is likely with the network and not the computer" and to "contact the network administrator." The computer is a homebuild desktop running Win XP Home with a wired connection to the wireless router. Other computers on the network work fine. I tried unplugging and re-plugging the network cable on both ends. I feel like I'm missing something obvious and am completely bafffled.
Any ideas?
Thanks,

I recently installed a DSL modem and hooked it up to my Router. Now both of them have firewalls installed, but if i connect to my modem via the 192.168.xx.xx address, all of my computer mac addresses are listed. why would the modem have that information, when the router is the one who should care...

I have static ips set up for each computer and my router set to DHCP. dont ask why, it just works.

But im worried that all someone would have to do is connect to my modem to get to my computers, they can completely bypass my router, as if it's not there :S

Okay I have a D-Link DSL G604T Wireless ADSL Router (revision B3), I works fine it works both with the LAN and wireless parts, I am connected via a ethernet cable on the computer I am using currently and my mums iBook is connected via the wireless.

But it wont give my computer an IP address, It was working fine but recently it stopped working, I am not sure what I did to stop it from working.

I tried connecting via my wireless adapter D-Link DWL-G510 (revision C) and then I moved the modem/router into my room and used an ethernet cable and plugged it into my onboard ethernet port, it wouldn't assign me an IP for that connection either.

I don't have a MAC address filter running on the modem, there is no wireless security nothing on the modem side that blocks my computer.

I tried using static IP's for both a wireless connection and using the ethernet, it connects to the modem, and I can access the modem but not the internet. It appears that when using static IP's it isnt routing me to the world wide web.

So It must be something to do with my computer. I tried to do a system restore, but that doesn't work It goes through the process of restoring, then when it restarts it comes up with incomplete restore cannot complete process or something. I tried multiple restore dates to restore to and none worked.

I would just re-install windows and be done with it, but I dont have any means of backing up data that I dont want to loose

A:Modem won't assign me an IP address

The router does not assign you an IP. Your computer is supposed to ask for one. Since the iBook is working OK, your router is responding to DHCP requests properly and your coomputer is to blame.

When you set up the static IP configuration, did you fill in all the data correctly? IP, mask, gateway and DNS exactly as on the working client? (The last octet has to be different for the IP address of course.)

Have you removed any malware recently? It could be that the removal program overdid it. Maybe run WinSockFix..

From your PC, post the output of "ipconfig /all" command.

I have Hamachi running on my Vista operating system to have remote access to a desktop with Windows XP. Everything has run fine until today when I had to replace my modem on the Vista operating system that my wireless laptop runs on. Now, I have Hamachi still installed and running and I can see my remote access to the other computer, however my computer is not able to access the information from the other desktop Windows XP, because I have a new modem and do not know how to configure that new modem with the existing Hamachi.

Assuming they are two separate units and not bridged.
When you ping, tracert or DDoS attack or what-have-you my IP address, who/what do you reach ?
Im understanding that a modem is just a media converter. It's got no IP address of its own.
But then Wikipedia states (under "cable modem"): "With respect to the OSI model of network design, a cable modem is both Physical Layer (Layer 1) device and a Data Link Layer (Layer 2) forwarder. As an IP addressable network node, cable modems support functionality at other layers...] ...The Network Layer (Layer 3) is implemented as an IP host in that it has its own IP address used by the network operator to maintain the device."
If it's not the modem's ip address, are they referring to TR-69..?
A scan of an ISP subnet (e.g NMAP) returns/reaches routers or modems?

I've had a great network for years but then my DI-624 died and I replaced it with a D-Link WBR-2310. It conected to the PC just fine and using DHCP it assigns IP's to the compters. The problem is that the Comcast modem will not give the the WAN an IP or DNS. When I check status the LAN has Host, IP and Gateway. When I check status on the WAN these are blank. Thus, I can't get on the internet using the network. I used the same cables I had with the DI-624 if that makes any difference? So, the network works and the router gives IPs but the WAN has nothing coming in. Help?

I'm trying to get Ubuntu 8.04 online and to do this I need to know the private IP address of my modem, which is an NEC NTA-3110 ADSL.

The problem is that my network card is detecting a private IP address automatically (169.x.x.x) and this is not quite in the range that I would expect. Normally it is in the 192.168.x.x range. The reason it is doing this is because the router is not offering any private IP addresses.

I've googled extensively. I know this information should be in the documentation or the manual, but the ISP gave me neither. I know I should ask the ISP but they won't have anything to do with Linux. They just tell you to run the Windows set up disk.

If anyone could offer any help on this, I'd appreciate it very much.

Charter up my internet price and told me they would put me on a promo plan if I came in and got one of their modems. I picked up the modem (Cisco DCP3008) yesterday and hooked it up tonight. I had everything connected through my DIR 615 and Charter came up asking me if I was upgrading, etc... needing to verify and so on. I went through that and the last step it said it need to restart the modem to finalize. The modem restarted and came online, however the browser never indicated the processed had finalize. I call Charter, we wired the modem directly to my laptop and got a connection. I thought things were good. I hooked back into the router restarted the modem, all lights came on, started the router and no IP address. I went into setup and clicked clone MAC address and hit save, still no IP address after going to status, dhcp release and dhcp renew.

I reset the router back to factory settings and it still would not pull and IP address. The router worked great before the new modem. Any suggestions to get my router to pull an IP address?

Hi everyone, having a frustrating night getting my ADSL2+ connection going. Just got a Billion 7402G modem/router delivered and I am trying to get it working on an XP PC.

My NIC card works fine, and has the latest drivers. I plug in the modem as described in the manual, and follow all configuration instructions including - Select the Obtain an IP address automatically and the Obtain DNS server address automatically radio buttons.

But I am not being issued an IP address. The manual says this should just be automatic and has no recourse if it is not.

I set an IP address manually within the range of the router, and was able to logon to the modem via the webgui. But no internet access.
Billion support tells me "You should only need to login to router with default settings, navigate to Quick Start page, enter your ISP login details & apply, router should then connect, when finished save config to flash. Nothing else should be required, computer should automatically connect. Ensure that software firewalls aren't blocking access."

OK, so to do this, I need to put in the manual IP address... why is the manual saying to set my LAN connection to obtain IP and DNS setting automatically,and why is this not working for me? Anyway I change the settings to manual and reboot, try the suggestion. All firewalls are disabled.

I have now manually entered an IP address for my PC that allows me to login to the router. Without doing this I cannot even get to this setup pag... Read more

I am just unable to bring up the webpage to login. I have turned off my firewall (windows firewall). I am just at a loss on what to try next.

A view of your IP address (ipcoinfig /all) will help. You might try restarting your modem, or find out if you're getting a dynamic or static address from your ISP.

You could also have a router/modem combo device. Just realized that you posted the model. Its not a combo device.

More information will be needed to actually help you.

One last thing is to make sure that your ISP can contact your modem. You will have to call them to test the connection.
