okay, i will make this as clear as possible, since i need help big time.
We have verizon DSL, and wireless router. three computers. two connected wireless and one's on wire. What the problem we are having is, internet keeps on disconnecting. it might just go off right now, and then i have to go reset the modem, and wait till it comes back up. and then finally i have some internet before it goes off soon. Modem's IP is 192.168.1.1 and router had same ip, but since IP conflicted and we didn't get any connection we changed router's ip to 192.168.1.2. now, another problem starts with router. if i let the connection and TCP/IP properties as automatically find IP address and DNS servers, the connection properties gets DNS and Gateway becomes 192.168.1.2 assigned by DHCP. in this case, we get no connectivity at all. so for IP we put 192.168.x.xxx and DNS and gateway 192.168.1.1 we get connection. and if we change the numbers, we get no internet. and after all this, if we go on each computer and check their IP, we all have same IP, the external one. SAME!! :tazz: i am so confused. if you read all these and help me, i will LOVE YOU FOREVER :)
thanks!
tape!

As much as i understand from your post, your problem is in your modem.
You say that your modem disconnects every now and then.
Have you tried to check your modem, and maybe replace it?

Well............{Deep Subject}............... it sounds to me like the TCP/IP settings are bonked..............jmo

Don't mess w/the DSL modem IP add............. check and make sure your W-Router IP Add. is something different [Like you did] ............... BUT NOW............

You have to change your computers TCP/IP settings to reflect the CHANGE IN THE DEFAULT GATEWAY (The W-Router).............. don't mess w/the DNS settings, as DNS settings DO NOT begin with 192.168.x.x................ LEAVE DNS ALONE, your W-Router will take care of that, being the default gateway for your wireless systems.

yea, the modem, is the one i got from Verizon, westell 2200. i don't want to buy another modem! and if i log into modem's page while the internet is down, i see UP on the status of the modem's page. but still i have to reset it. :)


the DNS settings if i don't change it in the router, it can't get online anymore. I found out about verizon's DNS like 4.2.2.1 or 4.2.2.2 and so on. i put that with dns too, but it don't work. i can't automatically let dsn search because as soon as i put FIND IP address automatically, the DNS by default i have to put the numbers in.

its very complex, :) and i don't know what is up with VERIZON, because if i let it on automatic settings, nothing works, and i hate that MODEM as well :tazz:

Your W-Router should have the option to "Auto-Detect" ISP settings......... I hope.............

You are on DSL, so my experience tells me every time you try to connect to the internet, like in the morning when you wake up, you will have to "authenticate"?

Your W-Router should have the DNS settings in it from the auto-detect; you COULD take these DNS settings and add them to your TCP/IP settings on each computer
