Asus RTN10+ DD-WRT
 
I installed ddwrt on my asus router yesterday. I got annoyed because I kept getting 192.168.119 as an ip address. Checked my settings, release, renew, after that I get 192.168.1.20, and it wasn't set on static. Internet worked for a couple of hours, but after that it gave me limited internet connectivity with the yellow triangle. Disabled adapter, renew ip address, router/modem reset nada. If I can't make it work on ddwrt, I'll reflash the old firmware. I'm just curios how in the hell can windows say that there's an ip address conflict, when I'm the only pc on the network.

1) what are you using static for?
2) What is the dhcp lease time?
3) try using ipconfig /renew

dhcp lease time is standard. I'm not using static, used renew.

You perhaps need to read what you wrote "was not set to static"

Yeah, I thought it was set to static because normally the ip add I get is x.x.x.1 not .199 or .20. Any other ideas ? I also tried to renew/release dhcp, still getting ip address conflict on the network.

Check and see if you have any ghost network adapters....

  • Open command prompt and run the following command: set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1
  • Do not close the command prompt
  • Open Device manager by running the command: start devmgmt.msc
  • In Device Manager, go to View menu and click on option Show Hidden Devices.
  • Got to Network Adapters, It would now lists the hidden phantom network adapters.
Perhaps there is one grabbing up the same IP address as the main NIC is getting.


Dunno, bit of a long shot but I'd check there first.

A computer will never get assigned a ip ending in 1 or 255 as these are reserved for other things.

From what I can guess, those IP address are the one you get in the PC connected to the router , not the IP address the router get from the ISP , the router is setup with DHCP, so it'S normal if you renew the address on the PC to get 192.168.1.20 after 192.168.1.19

His post is confusing all around.

What's confusing ? I told you that I had 192.168.1.119, after renew I had 192.168.1.20, the only thing that wondered me about this was because normally it was set to 192.168.1.2
