I need some advice quickly. At our small Catholic School our server crashed and will need to be replaced. In the meantime I need to set things up so that we have Internet access. What we have is a Comcast modem that is connected to a Cisco small business router. We had no internet at all until I did a hard reset on the router so now it has an ip address of 192.168.1.1. Our "network" is spread across 2 buildings so we have several wireless routers strategically placed to provide wireless access for the teachers with laptops. All the routers had DHCP turned off and static ip addresses configured.
Here is the problem I need to solve until we get a new server and get it configured. For some reason not all of our client computers are connecting to the Internet. Those that don't connect are getting an ip in the 169 range. Those that do connect show a proper 192.xxx ip address, a default gateway of 192.168.1.1 and a DNS server of 10.1.10.1. What do I need to do to get all of the computers connecting to the Internet?
The 2nd part of the question is how do I configure my routers for wireless access? I have lost all wireless connectivity in both buildings. The routers are Linksys and Actiontec.
Please advise as soon as possible.
Thank you in advance for your help.
