IP Conflict . . . (or the Heavens created networking, hell created DHCP)
 
I run XP. I networked my xbox to my pc via nic. It worked fine and
dandy for ftp'ing &c. for months. I moved and I installed a DSL modem
through a usb port using the company's installation disk. It claimed
it was necessary to activate DHCP to continue and did so.

My xbox no longer networks to my pc. At very first, if I had the xbox
on, it blocked my dsl service. That problem has resolved itself. I
have tried to reconnect to the xbox. I've used various static address
(all of which result in the yellow triangle in the bottom right tray).
I have picked the options Automatically assign an IP on TCP/IP. I
have set the xbox to a static 192.168.0.2 and .3 and many others. My
mask is 255.255.255.0.

Anyway, here is my last attempt trying to get xbox to jive with DHCP.
I know i should be able to assign a static address but ALL addresses
seem to generate a conflict (I've tried many). Anyway here is my
ipconfig /all.

Give the xbox a static in the 192.168.1.x range, somewhere high up where
DHCP isn't likely to allocate, say 192.168.1.222 and see what happens
then. If it works, ask for further instructions on how to make sure
this is a permanent fix.

You should be able to configure it with a range of IP addresses to
manage via DHCP. Then you can use addresses outside that range for
static assignment. That's how I have my LAN and ADSL set up. I also have
a client's office LAN configured that way, with (at last count) 3
machines with static IPs and maybe half a dozen others with
DHCP-assigned IPs.

I tried various x in that range, always with the same result: when I
connect with the new address, there is an ip conflict. Just to clear
things up, the local area connections dialogue shows 0 bytes received
from the xbox, but the xbox and the pc at least recognize they are
networked.

I can't find where to set a dhcp exclusion. I am running XP Home. I
found an article to set an exclusion at Microsoft's online help, but
my netsh> command prompt doesnt support dhcp commands. Is there a
client to do this? This is my first experience with dhcp, and
networking has always messed me up.

Thanks for your help so far guys.
