Releasing ip

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?ZHdpZ2h0?=, Mar 22, 2005.

  1. I have a client that installed a wireless network at home this weekend. He
    used his work laptop at home with now problems.

    When he came back to work and rebooted his laptop, his machine found the
    wireless network but did not get a new ip with correct dns information.

    I noticed that his home router ip was the same as work. Could this be part
    of the problem?

    To resolve the problem, I did an ipconfig /renew. I also had to disable the
    MS firewall in order for his laptop to see the server.

    Thanks

  2. Main 'blocker' was the firewall.

    Not a good practice to firewall inside a LAN. Stops everything from
    gettining in and out of the PC to the server etc.
