Wireless router: valid ip configiration

  mgmcc 11:36 25 Nov 2011

When you boot a second Laptop and it doesn't have internet access, run ipconfig /all in a Command Prompt window to see what IP address it has.

Go to “Start > Run”, type…

cmd.exe /k ipconfig /all

...and click OK. This will show details of all network adapters installed in the PC. If it doesn't have a correct IP address (probably 192.168.1.x) then, in the same window, run the command...

ipconfig /renew

...and see if it gets the proper address. If there are still problems, one option is to give the three Laptops fixed IP addresses. There isn't a problem using fixed IP addresses but, if you were then to try to connect to someone else's router which uses a different Subnet (IP address range), it would be necessary either to revert to automatic addressing or to allocate an address in the new range.
