Win7 bridge wifi/lan to switch to clients, dhcp not working?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
pretty much I might have a small lan party upstairs away from my router, and wifi is a mess (last time I tried using wifi for a lil gaming session and it didnt go well)
I'm planing to use one of my win7 computers with a network bridge to a 20p switch, but it seems it only gives out 1 ip 192.168.0.17, and then I tried plugging in my gaming rig and it tried to take my laptops ip (192.168.0.17) but got kicked off, so how can I get DHCP to work for all computers connected to the switch? I have set the bridge ip to 192.168.0.95, and can reach it from my laptop by wifi from that ip


I also plan to bring my proxy/game server up there and have em use proxy to save bandwidth(my wifi dont compare to 100Mb lan)

Short:
how do I make my win 7 bridge to switch have DHCP?


If you have any questions, let me know smile.gif

Edit:
I know static ip works but some of these people are computer noobs and dont know how to change it back when they leave, and I dont wanna setup and remove it off about 6 computers :/

Thanks,

It might only be DHCP 1 client? and tried to DHCP the same ip to other clients?
