How can I change the DHCP Server Address on a local network using Win XP SP2?
Posted on 2007-04-06
I have two identical computers running WinXP Media Edition. I have an 8 port 10/100 dual speed repeater. I have DSL over the telephone line. The DSL will only connect to one computer. I want to use a local network to allow the second computer to access the internet from the first computer. I did a network diagnostic test and everything shows fine except for the following. The DHCPServer address is 255.255.255.255. The test says this is an invalid IP address. I don't know how to change it. The DSL Modem DHCPServer = 192.168.1.1 (PASSED) How can I change the address for the local network card. The "Local Area Connection Statas" shows "Limited or no Connectivity".
