I have two computers (actually 3, but one is a private computer that I have no access to) connected to a router. It is a linksys router with no wireless capabilities (I do not know the model number or serial number - I do not have access to them.) I work in a small business and have been trying to set up a network now for a number of days. The owners live on the premises and the router and third computer are in their private apartment, which I cannot access. They are also not very computer savvy, making my job a bit more difficult.
Anyway, the two computers that I have access to are both running Vista. I can get them both to connect to the internet when I have them set to acquire the IP addresses manually. Because of the firewalls on the computers though, I want them to have static IP addresses (the third computer will also have this set up so his IP addresses don't interfere with the two computers I use.) As I was going through and checking all the settings, I realized that each of the two computers have different IP ranges, Default Gateways, even completely different DNS Servers. How do I correct this? I can't even access the router, because I don't know it's actual IP address, and since I see two default gateways (neither of which work), I'm terribly confused. Please help me, and let me know if you need additional information!
