Computer won't pick up the right IP

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I have a lynksys wrt54gl using the stock firmware and am using the router as a switch right now, the internet for my apartment is plugged into one of the 4 switch ports and not the WAN port. I have 2 computers hooked up to the router right now. My desktop pulls the correct ip, one given from the buildings router, but my laptop is pulling a 192.168.1.101 address from my router. I've released and renewed on both machines and they do the same thing. Anyone know why the laptop is getting an ip assigned by my router?

If it is plugged into the router it will automaticly assign an IP (different for each computer on the router/switch). What is the IP for the computer?

why not just turn off DHCP and assign your own IPs.

Just configure static ip's for your machines. You'll have to manually input the ip, gateway and DNS ip's(out of the scope of DHCP if you keep it enabled) correctly. Then you shouldn't have any ip issues.

I'm just too lazy at the moment to configure my router correctly so i'm using it as a switch.

My desktop has the IP of 192.168.4.1 and gateway of 192.168.4.1. The apartments router assigns on the 192.168.4.x

My laptop has the IP of 192.168.1.101 and gateway of 192.168.1.1. My router assigns on the 192.168.1.x

I'm wondering why they are getting IP's assigned from different places

Just manually set the Ip on the lappy. to 192.168.4.2 and set the DNS the same as the computer. start>run>cmd>ipconfig/all. That will show the dns. You can go to properties for network and look under status to find the DNS also.

if you're plugged into, or wirelessly connected to the same router...shouldn't both computers see the same gateway? The IP of the router shouldn't change...something fishy here..

unless the lappy connects to the neighbors unsecured wireless that would explain different gateway

I thought about that. But i hate manually assigning an address with a router I don't control. Oh well, maybe I'll take the time to set up my router tomorrow after I run my 10k
