Configuring An IP Address ????

I have come to the following instruction on setting up my wireless router which I don't understand.

"Configure your PC with IP address between 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.253 Then open your Internet browser to connect WLAN broadband router by entering click here"

...Does this mean I need to change my computers IP adress to a number between these amounts? If so how would I do it?

Ok....



192.168.1.254 is the routers IP address.


This is the GUI interface of which you can configure the routers settings via a webpage.

Now... What you need to do on every PC is configure each of the PCs an IP address for best performance.


PC A/Server will be: 192.168.0.1



PC B will be: 192.168.0.2



PC C will be: 192.168.0.3



and so on...



and subnet mask for all is: 255.255.255.0


These IPs can be configured by:

Control Panel > Network Connections/Network >


Select the adapter, normally LAN 10/100 ethernet...

>

Then properties > Specify IP address.


Now... To set up the Router put in Gateway the following IP: 192.168.1.254 and subnet mask as above.


This should now work...

Then from the computers connected to the router configure the router via: HTTP : //192.168.1.254

Be careful though, some options are dangerous.

IS there not an option to use it ?
make's life easy for lazy people , eh like me!!!!

There should be a enable DHCP option in the menu..
Then all you gotta do is enable DHCP on your computers and bingo...

OK, its not that hard to specify an addie but why bother? :-)

And Gaz is correct be carefull in there, i switched port 80 off on my adsl modem , and now i can't access the menu, without resetting the bloddy thing!!!

  Gaz 25 21:55 20 Jan 2004

DHCP, yeah ok...


but it takes longer for the PCs asigning IPs than specifying one manualy slowing boot time.

  Kitz E Kat 22:30 20 Jan 2004

True , but if your lazy............ :-)

cheers lads for both sugestions. Not got b/band yet but it's coming, handy reference...

  cubeladd 22:53 20 Jan 2004

argh! I didn't realise it would be this complicated :(

So for each PC (only 2) I have to make an IP address between the two numbers, lets say..

192.168.1.1

then the other PC will be the same but with '2' on the end, so 192.168.1.2

and then set the gateway and subnet the same for both computers?

  Gaz 25 23:00 20 Jan 2004

Yes.

the gateway is the routers IP.

  Gaz 25 23:02 20 Jan 2004

I know what you mean, I like to do it the hard way. The way cisco lads like it doing. LOL


;-)
