We have a business class BellSouth DSL Modem. It is not wireless but does act as our DCHP. In my novice mind I cannot understand why the IP address range does not lease what it is set to.
when I login to the modem under 192.168.1.254 Is see under DHCP settings
modem ip: 192.168.1.254
dhcp start: 192.168.1.1
dhcp end: 192.168.1.253
However all the client PC ipconfig list IPs as: 192.168.1.92, 192,168.1.93, 94, 95, etc. with them all showing the correct subnet and default gateway as 192.168.1.254 (the same number list for the DHCP server & DNS server under ipconfig)
We have no server all client PCs. The DSL modem plugs into a business class Linksys-Cisco switch and there is a connection from it to a SMC switch. The Linksys switch does have a web access default gateway with the same IP as 192.168.1.254 but I changed the option from static to DHCP so all the PCs can hit the web through it as well and they are. When I enter the gateway address it goes to the bellsouth dsl modem and not the Linksys as it did before the config.
I ask this question because when I boot a PC sometimes I see a warning for an IP Address Conflict and I just cannot understand why the IP address are falling in this range on the BellSouth DSL modem...
This is not my modem screen but it looks similar to this:
"mind shows a box that is checked to use the LAN IP start/end address range..."
