CANNOT get my wireless to connect to the internet!!!!

By Laos_lunatic ·
Hey im abit of a noob but i really need help on solving this problem with my wireless connections.
Well my computer is the only computer connected directly to the router by a LAN cable. I have 2 other computers connected via wireless. This is my laptop and another computer in the house.
Well heres the problem. My wireless connections use to be able to connect to the internet but since i have set up a static IP adress to my desktop the wireless connections have not been able to access the internet.I have tried to put a static IP address on all the wireless connections but still no luck. I am using a DSL-502T router which is connect to the DI-524 wireless router. Please someone give me a solution.

Well, five things about your static address

by robo_dev In reply to CANNOT get my wireless to ...

is it a duplicate?
network number
subnet mask
default gateway
dns settings

Don't duplicate your addresses!
if you have a dhcp server, your static address cannot be one that your dhcp server could assign, so if your dhcp has a range of to 100, then your static has to be 101 or higher

Network number:
on a 192.168.0.x network, the first three numbers gotta be the same 192.168.0.

The mask:
the subnet mask has to match. is most likely on home LAN

Default gateway:
this has to be the IP of your router. typically Make sure you can ping this address or it won't work.

Your DNS server setting must also be the IP address of your router.
