I think that may be a consequence of not getting an appropriate response
to the DHCP request sent to the router. Not sure. I'll experiment a bit.
B) Using DHCP with manual address.
In B) and C) I have tried various combinations of the IPs 192.168.1.101 and
169.254.178.121 (although I am unsure what that one is) and subnet masks
255.255.0.0 and 126.96.36.199.
Try these settings:
IP address: 192.168.1.2 (or 192.168.1.101)
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Between each attempt I turned airport off & on and reconnected to the
I would doublecheck the settings on the router. Make sure the DHCP server
is enabled. Save any settings and reboot. Some routers need a reboot for
some settings to take effect, though yours may not be one of those. But
grasp at every straw :)
R. The DHCP request you mentioned kicked out the following:
If it were my router, I'd expect to get reply to one of the DHCP requests like
23:20:33.445299 00:11:22:33:44:55 (oui Unknown) > 00:16:cb:b8:71:d3 (oui
ethertype IPv4 (0x0800), length 590: 192.168.1.1.bootps >
BOOTP/DHCP, Reply, length: 548
In the above 192.168.1.1 is the IP address of the router and 192.168.1.100 is
the address allocated to the computer requesting an IP address from the
Thanks for the advice R, but still no joy.
I tried the IPs/subnet masks etc you suggested - in both 'using DHCP with
manual address' & 'manually'. I checked the router IP setup screen again &
DHCP is definitely enabled. Also while going thru the router set-up screens
I found the following, in the 'status' screen:
Login Type RFC 2364 PPPoA
IP Address: 188.8.131.52
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.255
Default Gateway: 184.108.40.206
Needless to say I've tried all those details in every permutation & still
What I can't understand is that the router itself is setup *exactly* as it
was when the wireless was working last week (before I pressed the 'secure
easy setup' button in error).
Network status isn't much use either because no matter what IP I put in when
configuring 'manually'it says "Airport is connected to the network
Wireless1.You are connected to the internet via Airport'?
I've also tried exactly the same IP, subnet Mask & Router address as those
in the Built-in-Ethernet configuration screen but - nothing.
I'm loathe to return the kit as I'm pretty sure it's not actually a hardware
fault as such - just a configuration niggle. I can't believe nothing works -
I'm pulling my hair out :-/
Many thanks for your help with this & if you've any more ideas I'd be
