No Ip Using Router And Hub... Ahh!
Posted 01 August 2003 - 07:07 PM
I just wanted to make sure that my hardware/internet connections are not my problem.
I saw tutorials/posts on how to get an IP using a Router.
I saw tutorials/posts on how to get an IP using a Hub.
But I have both... Linksys BEFSR41 Router AND a hub. Here's my config:
Linksys ---- > PC
HUB ----> Laptop
My XBox settings are:
.......Type = blank
.......IP = blank
.......Line Status = No Link!
Ethernet MAC = (it is assigned a MAC)
Setup Network = YES
Use Static IP = NO
IP = 192.168.1.109
Subnet = 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway = 192.168.1.1
DNS (both) = 0.0.0.0
Setup Delay = 10
Skip Setup if No Link = Yes
FTP/Telnet are ENABLED
LINKSYS BEFSR41 Settings:
DHCP = Enabled
Starting IP = 192.168.1.100
DHCP Users Allowed = 50
Device IP = 192.168.1.1
Obtain IP Automatically = yes
Latest Firmware installed
Is having a Hub AND Router making this not work for me? I would think if I can get the laptop that's hooked to the hub to be assigned an IP, I could get the XBox to do the same.
I have done cable checking and all is well and correct.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

In the router there is ranges that they can assign, whatever you want. Make the range bigger to make sure that is assigning, maybe that you cant support any new IP licenses
MMM....why does your router obtain an IP automatically?
a hub cant screw it up, its just a dumb repeater. if u have 2 routers hooked up, it could screw up
if u have a firewall on the router, make sure it is setup correctly
hmm after re-reading that ur ranges should work, that dont make sence. And if u cant get any IP address from the router, how does the xbox have an IP set? (mebe from debuggin? ) Make sure you are not using a crossover on any of the cables; make sure the connection is good, sometimes my xbox wont get an IP

If a static IP is not satisfactory, you could try and examine your router's setup. I haven't used the LinkSys, but it might be possible to monitor what DHCP leases the router has handed out. By matching the xbox's MAC with an assigned IP you could tell whether the xbox has obtained an address or not. Evox will also show you what IP it has received and how it was obtained.
Ping early, and ping often.
Good luck in pinpointing the issue.
