I have a Netgear Router WGR614 v.6 connected to 5 computers. One is
hard wired, two have built in wireless capability. One with win 98SE
and a netgear card WPN511. All four work fine.

Another one has win XP Pro and a netgear card WPN511. It worked fine
until I replaced the wireless card with hard wired ethernet card for
temporary use. With the hard wired card the DHCP automatically
assigns an IP address. When I replace the net card with the wireless
card, it will not aquire an IP address, even though the signal
strength is excellent. I tried manually assigning an IP address, but
I didn't know how to configure dns and wns.

All help will be appreciated.

Sincerely Richard

While I'm not familiar with the Netgear router you might want to look at
that router's config for DHCP. It sounds like you have either a limit on
the number of addresses assigned OR perhaps using MAC address filtering.
If you search around its config you might see where you can either open
these us or expand the definition. HTH

I have seen addresses as high as 192.168.1.9. My printer server is
always 192.168.1.7. The computers are assigned an address as they are
turned on. DHCP automatically assigns an IP address. When I replace
the netgear wireless card with a hard wired ethernet card the computer
has an address automatically assigned. I check mac filtering.

How does one manually assign ip address with xp?

Pretty simply - open up "network connection" and look for your WIRED LAN
adapter. Right click on it and then select "properties". On the resulting
screen you should see a page/tab where you can set the address manually.
It either states - use this address or sometimes "static" then key your
desired IP in the appropriate area. Use 255.255.255.0 as the netmask.

I never have a problem with my wired lan connection. I am connected
with my wired lan now. DHCP will not automatically set an IP address
when I have my wireless card installed. I have tried setting ip
address manually when I have my wireless card connected. The computer
appears to accept the address. My wireless card states that it is
connected to the router and that the connection is excellent and that
it cannot acquire an ip address. I go to the command prompt and type
in ipconfig and it indicates the manual address that I configured.

Sincerely, Richard

The 614 wil not support that.
