    Hey everyone...

    I have a router that automatically updates my DynDns account for the home server, and everything usually works just fine. Every now and then when the connection is reset, the router sends off it's local ip address instead of the newly assigned address from my isp. How can I fix this? Is this normal?

    Any info would be appreciated.

    ???

    Are you sure your PC is simply not pulling a DHCP address and instead using the standard windows IP address: 169.254.X.X


    See: LINK
    If your local IP address is returned as 169.254.y.z with a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0, the IP address was assigned by the Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) feature of Windows XP Professional. This assignment means that TCP/IP is configured for automatic configuration, that no DHCP server was found, and that no alternative configuration is specified. This configuration has no default gateway for the interface.

    Thanks for the response. I am actually all mac on this network, and there is no pc connected at all. The ip that my router sends off occasionally is either 10.0.1.4 , or 192.168.3.1 . These are just random ips that the DHCP server is passing out, and neither on of them are static for any machine on the network.

    Is this something that is unheard of? It may just be another defective router, linksys has been giving me troubles lately.

    How many Macs are on the network? are they manually configured or configured to automatically pull DHCP?

    The two servers are manually configured out of the dhcp range, and most everything else is wireless. I don't quite see how it would be relevant though.

    I guess I'll reconfigure everything using an old netgear router to see if it still sends off the wrong ip... I think it had DynDns updating capabilities.
