Have had DSL modem for years, no problem (except slow speed). I have a wired CAT5 network. DSL modem was DHCP server for network addresses in 192.168.254.10 to 249. Have 2 XP systems, Win7 system that use DHCP. Also have printer, NAS and WAP on network at fixed addresses below 192.168.254.10.
Just had cable guy install cable modem on my network. Win 7 machine recognizes it fine and I can connect. My XP machines are lost. Previously were setup to auto configure (get IP from DHCP). When I do ipconfig /all on the Win7 machine, the assigned IP andgateway are 24.93... and the DHCP server 10.95.... Everything used to be 192.168.254.*. Can't print, NAS and WAP inaccessible.
It's a Scentific Atlanta DPC2100R2 modem. The installer didn't know a modem from a refrigierator, almost no help. How can I configure my network to have my XP machines work, and connect to my printer, NAS and WAP? I guess the first step is how to get the XP machines on the internet.
