windows xp with a 2wire dsl 1701hg router need to connect CNC milling machine to network with a certain ip address for file server?
Posted on 2006-04-24
I am fairly new to networking and setting ip addresses. We have a cnc router that looks for a file on a computer using the ip address 192.168.152.1, then opens a user account and finds a file then you can upload that file from the cnc router(Computer navigated control milling machine for wood) from that computer. However what I would like to do is set up a network using the 2wire 1701hg dsl router from sbc that I can still use the ip adress of 192.168.152.1 for a file server (yellow machine) and set all the ip adresses of the other computers, and still be connected thru to the internet. I belive the cnc machine has the ip of 192.168.0.5. How the hell do I do this?
right now I have to unplug a computer from the network and directly connect the router to that computer and change the computer's IP properties from automatic to 192.168.152.1 I would like to not to ever have to uplug and replug. additional coment. ok so how do I connect the 'cnc router' to the yellow machine basically thru the
