DHCP Mishap

#1
late today, my router, for some reason, became irritated

it began assigning computers that joined the network the same IP... (for example... one person would be on a running computer with IP: 192.168.1.101, and the next computer that joins is assigned the same IP... connection dialogue would pop up ("LAN IP Conflict") and hysteria would ensue

router has latest firmware, and has been working fine until now... any ideas how to fix it?

(and if I was to set up static routing... this is a newbie question, i know, i know gateway, subnet mask, etc, but where would I look to find the 1-3 DNS IPs that I need?)

thanks

i would try disabling DHCP on the router and manually assign IP addys to all machines on the network.

i would then reset the router.

Don't disable WAN DHCP in the router. That is the IP Address that you get from your ISP. DO NOT change that to static.

Disable the internal LAN DHCP server and give each computer a static 192 address.

As for your DNS Addresses for the PCs, just look under ipconfig /all on one of the working PCs.

the only way I figure out my ISP DNS is by connecting a computer directly to net bypassing the router. Run ipconfig /all in a command box. my router does not display the DNS.
