Thanks DD

Connect a computer (any computer) directly to one of the Wireless Router's LAN ports by ethernet cable. In the PC, open a Command Prompt window ("Start > Run", type CMD and click OK) then, at the prompt, type...


...and press Enter. This will show details of all network adapters installed in the PC. In the Local Area Connection's details, look for the DEFAULT GATEWAY address - that's the Router's IP address.

i have thought of that but DHCP is disabled for the router as the server does all of that... would ipconfig /all still bring up the router as the default gateway?

No, if DHCP has been disabled in the router, a computer connected directly to it won't get any addresses automatically.

Plan B: As DHCP has been disabled in the router, the server must have been configured manually with the relevant addresses. You should be able to find the Default Gateway address by running IPCONFIG /ALL in the server.

The way i have the server set is that it is the router and is the default gateway.... i use a USB Dongle to connect to the internet so it is plugged into the server... I dont know if it throws a spanner in the works or not... :S

The server is functioning as a router and DHCP server for the computers connected to it, but it must be a secondary router to the main one which has the internet connection.

I don't know what subnets you're using but the main router could have an address such as and the server have something like as its WAN IP address. It will then use a different subnet for the LAN. It could have a LAN IP address of and allocate addresses between and

You should still be able to identify the addresses by running IPCONFIG /ALL in the server.
