My small home network of three PC's can't see the new PC added today. ipconfig/all shows a different default gateway for the new PC when compared with the two that can see each other and printer/file share. I have a cable modem attached to a 5 port hub and the IP addresses are given by my ISP. How can I force identical default gateways and IP addresses in the same range?

Thanks, this is very frustrating as the new PC can get on the internet, but not see the other two PC's or share the network laser printer.

I tried giving the new PC the same default gateway but lost internet access as I believe the IP address, subnet mask and default gateway must be assigned by my internet service provider.
