  1. Correction - it does recognize the seperate routers. It still only connects the latter two computers to the internet, regardless of the DHCP settings on either of the computers.
  2. Small update - I finangled with the computers a bit, and discovered that the comps connected to the second router were receiving internet, and therefore I'm typing from one of them now. However, the first three comps haven't been getting internet now. When I checked the DHCP settings for my first modem, I saw that they had been disabled as well - it seems that it's treating them both as the same router. Is there any way to make that stop?
  3. I've disabled DHCP on the second router, which seemed to go off without a hitch. Unfortunately, when I connected the two routers, my internet ceased to function on any of the computers. Further suggestions? Thanks for helping, Swimmer.
  4. Supposing I'm not an expert on such, how does one disable DHCP on a router?
  5. I'm in the midst of setting up a small office network that's completely wired (my Aunt is about as paranoid as they come). I've got 2 D-Link 604 routers to set up 5 computers with, so my plan was to plug three computers into one router and daisy-chain the second for the other two. Everything is hooked up (I'm running CAT5e cable between the two routers) and I'm showing signal on both my routers, but the other two computers refuse to connect to the internet. I figure this once again has something to do with the wild world of IP conflicts or some such, and therefore I humbly ask for assistance once more. If not for me, for my wireless-fearing Aunt?
  6. Thanks, folks. I manually entered an IP (had to fool around with a couple of options) and got it back online. I appreciate all the help.
  7. My router's too far away to hook it directly up to my computer.
  8. It's given me issues before, but usually I just cycle the power and it shapes up. I've never had it do this before, though.
  9. Tragically, no. Every time I tried to set that up, it reverted to open/disabled as soon as anyone connected. I wondered if that might be part of the problem.
  10. Having exhausted my brain trying to figure this one, out, I'm turning to the pros for advice. Yesterday my wireless internet quit on me on my PC. I'm on a network with two PCs and my laptop, using a D-Link router and adaptor. My PC still attempts to connect to the internet, but always stalls at "Acquiring Network Address", occasionally showing itself as connected with limited or no connectivity. The wireless signal is strong and obviously coming through, and my internet is not affected on any of the other computers. When I check the details of the connection, it always say my IP Address is, which I'm pretty sure might be the source of the problem. It was always happy automatically connecting before, and I'm not really sure how to manually set up an IP address properly. When I tried IPConfig /release and /renew, it said something about the DHCP client not being able to assign a new IP. Confused? Yes, I am. Anyone have suggestions?
