Where do I got o change the IP add and subnet mask?

I am adding a 3rd wireless computer to the house.

I have loaded the correct drivers for the pccard, but I need to change the IP and gateway address type.

I just cannot remember where to go.

Window XP Pro BTW.

On the desktop,

right-click "my network places"
click "properties"

On the card you are trying to adjust,

right-click the object,
click "properties"

cool, I found it.

Right now it is set on "Obtain IP address and DNS server address automatically".

The IP address that is assigned is a totally different sequnce of numbers compared to my other two pc's which are almost the same. The subnet mask is also off, but almost the same. Also, is there a way to change the address type from Auto private address to assigned by DHCP?

All of the others were not nearly this difficult to setup. Isn't there a way to clear all of the settings?

How are your other machines getting their ip addresses? Do you have a DHCP server?

If you're using a wireless router, such as a DLink DI 614, like mine... you may have turned on some filters. For the longest time I couldn't get a computer added to my network because I had MAC filtering turned on, to only allow the MAC addy's for the two systems that were on the network. Once I turned that off, my new machine showed right up.

And then I just added it's MAC address to the list of allowed machines, turned the filter back on, and it's good to go.

It's sounds like you're having a similar problem to what I was experiencing. Check that out. I think it's under the Advanced tab in the router setup, then in the Filters button. That is, of course, if you're using the DLink router
