I have a wireless router that connects to a Broadband modem (the modem is giving out addresses on DHCP) and the wireless is set up with a static address say 10.XX.XX.200. and the wireless also hands out about 20 addresses from. 201 to 220. The network has both Mac and PC users. The users pick up and address of 10.XX now but after an hour or two the gateway of 10.XX.XX.1 (which will allow the users to print properly and get everywhere changes to 10.XX.XX.200 (the static address of the wireless device) this change of gateway locks any users from printing on doing simple tasks.
If an ipconfig release / renew is done then all works again for a few hours only. Is there a way to lock the wireless device to only use the gateway of the broadband router? Or am I going about this incorrect.
(the goal is to have both Mac and PC users connect on the wireless and get an address of 10.XX and be able to print and access files properly) -- Static addressing on the users pc i snot an option since too many complaints when they need to connect outside the network.
Thanks in advance.
