What could cause an IP Address to drop?

Do you mean you have lost your internet connection or are you saying you have a router and it is not assigning IP addresses?

I have a Netgear DG834 modem/router and it "lost" the IP address....Therefore no internet connection...It's hardwired to a PC with a laptop connected by wifi...Over the years the IP address has dropped but always come back after a few minutes but yesterday dropped for 5 hours!!!

Thanks for link.....I did a reboot/reset on router to factory settings then reset info and back to normal now but it's so annoying...Any idea what causes it?

Please help,

Can anyone tell me how to find my IP address? I am running XP Professional and use AOL as my ISP. Also I use a wireless network to connect to the internet, is it possible to find the IP addresses of other computers on the network?

Thanks

@bremner

I've no objection to my post being "hijacked" and who are these mysterious ones who have set these "protocols"???...No doubt another platoon of tree hugging mamby-pammy PC loud mouths trying to control the freedom of speech!!

@Dr Wack
Do a Google for "IP Address" ....If you are not very computer literate.

Oh dear.....I've knocked a PC nest....Before you start a "trolling" exercise, perhaps you should take a step-back and re-read my post...Perhaps everyone that posts isn't as "knowledgeable" as you obviously are to the etiquettes of a forum posters' life and needs to be gently eased in to the world of forum posting, and a glimpse of the life of a "forum Troll"......YEH RIGHT! (Oh and before you flame me for the use of capitals...Yes I do know what they mean) heheh

There are two types of IP address involved here - your WAN IP address (Wide Area Network or Internet address) as allocated by AOL, which goes to your Router. The Router then allocates LAN IP addresses to all computers connected to it. These are in one of the address ranges reserved for use in Local Area Networks and most commonly 192.168.x.x addresses.

To find your public WAN IP address click here

To find a particular computer's LAN IP address in the network, go into the Network Connections folder ("Start > Run", type NCPA.CPL and click OK) highlight the appropriate network adapter, and look at the bottom of the left pane click here
