I have just recently changed my network setup and I am having problems.

Current Setup
I have just upgraded to BT Infinity (I am based in the UK).  So, attached to the phone socket I have a BT modem.  Then there is a LAN cable coming out of the modem to a DLAN device (Powerline LAN).

In a cupboard, I have another DLAN device and attached to this I have a BT Home Hub.  This provides a wireless signal.

Also in the house I have DLAN devices attached to TV, Home Computer and Home Server.

The wireless is working fine.  I can connect any device to the WIFI.  However all my DLAN connected devices are not working.  On the home computer it is reporting an error with the IP address.

Previous Setup
It is worth noting what the previous setup was - which worked perfectly.  I had a Netgear Home Modem router.  Therefore the phone line went into the Modem Router and coming out of that was a LAN cable to a DLAN device.


Suggestions?  Should I fix ip addresses for all my DLAN connected devices?  Should I turn off the DHCP on the new BT Router? Should change the IP address range in the BT Router?


Thanks in advance
