    Small network issue


    i have a Netopia Model 3347-02 AnnexA High-Power Wireless DSL Ethernet Managed Switch.

    connected to it are, 4 win 7 computers, a wireless brother printer, and a konica bizhub work station.

    3 days ago everything worked fine.
    yesterday 2 of the computers lost internet connection. they can connect to the network (pull files from other computers), but aren't online.

    one of the computers that was connected yesterday was shut down over night and this morning it wouldn't connect, but one of the 2 that wasn't online before was connected.

    so i have determined that somewhere in my router settings it's only giving out 2 ip addresses. the computers show unidentified network when they aren't online.
    i just can't figure out where to change this.

    on the home page it shows
    DHCP Leases: 2 out of 253 leases in use

    I suggest power-cycling the router thats supposed to be used as the DHCP server.

    Try assigning it a static ip, see if you can ping the router ip, if not then it is the wireless/ethernet cable.

    What does "ipconfig" on the computers that won't connect show as compared to the ones that are working? Try replacing cables or switching ports around on the router. If you switch a "good" computers cable or port with one from a computer that doesn't work, does the problem follow or stay on the same machine? Do you see link lights on the computers that aren't working?

    Start with physical connectivity and work up from there. It's rare for ports or cables to just "go bad", but it happens.
