Replying to Computers Fighting For IP Address
Posted 23 January 2006 - 04:25 AM
At the end I just set all 3 machines to a static IP instead to keep them out of trouble All is working well now.

Well the router is handling ips in the 192.168.1.xxx range so its DHCP is working.
I dont know that particular trademark but i do know routers.... and often the problem is in their own configuration..... you should do some tests just to check if it is working correctly.
Use the basic ip range and manually set the ip in every computer, then check if you have a good connection. then try to use the 192.168.0.XXX range and see if the router responds with a connection....
the operating system can also be the problem.... try XP SP2 Pro for a change and see if it works better... i kind of hate the home version.
as for firewall, xp firewall sucks so its better not having any than that thing on. use a professional one.... one that you can costomize for your network needs... and no NORTON or Panda apps please..... my solution is Kaspersky Personal Pro AV and Look'n'Stop firewall.... and dont make jokes about this firewall prog that has only little over 1Mb instalation, because its one of the best arround.
Hope this has helped you

All signs on the Windows 98 desktop says that it's running (my wireless internet connection program says I have a signal) but no valid IP address. Tried renewing the IP through winipcfg already but that didn't work.
I guess this is just one of those mysterious problems. Ready to chuck this Windows 98 computer anyway...almost finished building the new one (will also be running XP)

My router is where I found place to put it... So it's exactly on the wall, near all the pipes... I'm lucky everything works most of the time....
make sure the router is located away from a main wall

Just verify the wifi device properties, see if the device is seen as "conected". If you have obtain no IP address, just try again in a DOS window, by typing "ipconfig /renew"

The router (also a modem) is Westell Versalink 327W. Verizon allows us to hook up to 5 computers wirelessly as I recall. So having 3 users shouldn't be a problem...
