I'm helping a friend who runs a small chiropractic office. Their DSL provider came in and set up a new router and established a new wireless network for them. However, their copier/printer/fax/scanner utilizes a Linksys Wireless Network Adaptor (one meant for gaming consoles) to provide network connectivity for printing and scanning functions. It does not have built-in wi-fi capabilities. The adaptor wants an IP address in the 192.168.1.XXX range, while the router's built in DHCP Server wants to use IP addresses in the 192.168.0.XXX range. Their DSL provider says its not their issue/problem and won't assist them.
One would think it would be easy to change the IP address in the Network Adaptor - but I can't because the Setup Utility available from Linksys doesn't see the device - even when plugged in via Cat-5 - and I think(?) it's because it's been given an IP address in a different range?
I tried to change the DHCP server settings to use the 192.168.1.XXX range - but IE kept throwing error messages and Chrome wouldn't work.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
