I have a laptop and a desktop running on a wireless Bt homehub network, but the laptop will not receive any packets. I understand manually entering the IP address will solve this, but what do i need to enter as the IP, DNS and subnet mask? and where do i find these numbers? any help greatly appreciated James
i have flushed the DNS cache yes, and when i click repair, a message shows, "The following steps of the repair operation failed: Renewing the IP address. Please contact your network administator or ISP.
If you want to assign a static IP address go to your PC that is connecting correctly to the net and use Start>Run>cmd>ipconfig /all then hit Enter Write down the IP address 192.168.x.xxx, Default Gateway DNS servers DHCP server Subnet Mask (usually 255.255.255.0)
Go to the laptop and enter the same details in the Network Connection except for the IP address which you need to add five on to the end number ie 192.168.1.100 becomes 192.168.1.105 This will enable four other devices to connect to the router without throwing up an IP conflict.
