Unidentified Network. - Page 3

post #21 of 51
Thread Starter 
84.195.xx.xx But we have dynamic ip, so I think it changes all the time.
Incase I need a router, what kind do you suggest I should buy?

Even so, I still find it hard to believe this could be the cause. Ive been running both rigs with internet fine for more then 3 years using this switch.

The only times I've had Unidentified Network was using VMware and the PogoPlug software. It could very well be something along those lines.

84.195.x.x address is internet facing, so your modem is not a DHCP server.

2 reasons it may have worked in the past and not now - your ISP used to give out >1 IP and no longer does (we are running out of IPv4 addresses), or your 'managed' switch isn't working properly, in which case you'll need a router.

On what type...everyone has a different preference. I've always liked Netgear and D-Link.

If I'm way off on this its because I don't understand Euro ISP's, maybe they give IP's like fat kids eat candy at Halloween.

Get a router. Most modems do not do DHCP even if they say they do.

Switch + Modem = fail. The other computer probably works due to the fact it's acting as a pass-through to the modem.

This. I cannot believe it took you guys 3 whole days to figure out that he doesn't have a router.

I'd recommend my router very highly. Asus RT-N16. That's assuming you do any sort of torrenting (legal of course). It's also a full Gigabit switch (4 port), DHCP server, and Wireless N hotspot. It can be a wireless bridge, its DD-WRT compatible, it can be a file server via a USB hard drive....I love this thing.

Do note, if you do get that router, you need to update the firmware on it immediately for it to work correctly. Otherwise its solid.

And for 4 years now I have had that config. with no problem so basically what you just said is wrong. As long as you know what you are doing it works without fail. 6 computers and a wireless access point using ATT modem (SpeedStream Model 4100) to Switch (Linksys 8 port Gigabit Switch) to computers and D-Link DWL-G700AP using modem as DHCP/DNS. All computers set with static IP and guests who come to the house can jack in with DHCP. Now to set things straight I did have a router set up and was using a linksys but with my modem there were conflicts all the time even when I set the router to a diff IP since modem was set at 192.168.0.1, so after going to switch taa daa problem gone and none to speak of since.

That's great, but not every modem has those capabilities. I've used modems with ridiculous add-ons, and also bare bones ones designed to only translate public to private.

Go pick up a cheap router and see what happens.

True and I admit that I dont know what the modem is for OP and it is in Europe just stating my experiences.
A switch should never face the internet
when has that been a factor? Cant be because Routers have built in firewalls (Myth) I have installed many switches between modems ( Cable and DSL) and cant figure that statement out?

As far as a cheap router, yes i could and have in a few situations. Depends on what my customer wants and his preferences.
