Got my super hub today, and i am having problems with pc’s having static ip address.
If I set the computer to have a static ip address it will connect to the network but it won't connect to the internet,
But if i set the computers to let the router to get the ip address for me it will work fine, can anyone help me with this problem?
As i have been in the advance options change the options putting the back changing new settings etc... But I just can't get it to work with a static ip.
Here is the setup I use for static ip
Ip Address - 192.168.0.X
Subnetmask - 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway - 192.168.0.1
Preffered DNS - 192.168.0.1
this is the same as settings when the DHCP Assignes the IP
I have run the error test on vista to try and fix the problem and it comes back with the following error message - "There may be a problem with you domain name server (DNS) configuation" and it tell me to conntact the ISP or network Admin.
But it not worth it as there is proberly some daft little setting on the router that is stopping it.
P.S I use the static IPs as I run server and have an xbox360 so need to manual port forward the necessary ports
It looks like the DNS address is wrong. Your machine is looking to the router for DNS lookups, not a DNS server. Try changing the primary DNS to 188.8.131.52 for VM's primary DNS or 184.108.40.206 for Google's public DNS, or use both as a primary and secondary DNS servers
As for static addressing. You should be fine once the DNS is resolved properly. Or, you could try configuring your devices for dynamic IP addressing and then use the reservations table under LAN IP and DHCP reservations to 'fix them with an address' so that when their lease is renewed they keep the IP address. You can then still use port forwarding in the manner you do now, but you'd need to point the services to the client's new addresses.
I have one more problem, I have 2 laptops running on vista, I have one laptop running no trouble with the setting that I posted before, but the other laptop does't want to connect to I have tryed auto IP config but it comes up with that it "Cannot Connect with Primary DNS Server (220.127.116.11) So I tryed to input this manually with 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 Ive tried to use Googles Public DNS Still no look.
Ive tried the repair that vista give you just come back with same repairs
Ive tried deleting and saved networks and rejoining my own network still no look.
lol, am running vista on another laptop and thats running no trouble.
The XP computer running a webserver (just a basic website)
Yes it the superhub (Supercrap)
And yes its a new problems since the superhub has gone on.
I have also just restored the laptop back to default and still has the same problem, when the wireless is trying to connect to the hub the hub flash red and blue to say the laptop is trying to connect.
just the wireless card round in the laptops and the laptop i was having trouble with work with the other wireless card. So it looks like the wirless card is not supported with the superhub The wireless card that in the laptop the one I am having trouble with is a - Atheros AR5007EG. So I have to set my belkin router so it using the same IP base as the superhub and use that just for one laptop for now intill I get a new wireless adaptor. but the internet seems a bit slow now lol
Update driver again from device manager, this time select specify manually and point it to the folder you extracted the driver to.
