Can anyone tell me how to fix this?
I installed a wireless service at home with my DSL service. The wireless box has 4 jacks for LAN and WAN service.
Now, I connected my pc to the first jack. No problems, worked like a charm.
But then I set up the mobile pc to connect, it wouldn’t connect… Error given was ‘waiting for IPconfig’… Dunno.
Anyway, I managed to connect another way, and then I got an error on my first system, saying IP Error.
Diagnosis: both pcs were trying to use the same Ip number, ie. I think it was ..*.3.
So I changed the cable on the back of the box to the next jack, hey presto both worked.
Now, I know both pcs were fighing over the IP number. But I don’t know why… and I don’t know how to solve it.
My box said it had DHCP enabled… (but I’m not too clear on this…)
Can anyone clarify what I didn’t do / did wrong with this?
Thanks a bunch.
