Total computers 6
2 running XP, 4 running 2000
This is how i set up the network.
from wall to modem->router->1 wired to computer, rest wireless.
I talked to verizon about the conflict, and they said, the router and the modem have the same ip, so u have to change the router's ip by 1. I did that. but as soon as i do that, the whole network goes down. nothing loads, and if i change it back to 1 again then it loads, but it conflicts with modem and keeps goin off, and comin back on again....really annoying.
what I did was, to remove the conflict, i changed the router's ip by 1, then in the connection, the DNS and the DEFAULT gateway was the router's ip which was 192.168.1.2 after i changed it, and modem is 192.168.1.1. so i went to properties and TCP/IP properties and manually put the IP. Put DNS and the gateway as 192.168.1.1 as it showed in the automatic configuration. only thing i changed was gateway from XXX.XXX.XXX.2 to XXX.XXX.XXX.1.
I did that to all the computers and then all the computer have internet. but mine's loading reall slow...page loads up like 56k modem or slower, and when i go to 2wire and check the speed im at 600+kbps. what could be the problem?
i hope i explained good enough to get good help...
thanks in advance!
