DI-524UP DHCP Problems

By anjey

  1. Hi.

    I have DLink DI-524-UP and want to use DHCP for my notebooks. But sometimes they did not receive 192.168.0.x IP addresses as I configured, but 192.168.238.133 and also all other settings (Gateway, etc.) from that 238 network.

    How could i solve this problem?

    P.s.: My friend also have this problem with same hardware :(

    check the starting and ending address of the DHCP settings.

    sorry and make sure your subnet is valid.

    There is no 238 subnet defined in settings nowhere. Starting and ending addresses are 192.168.0.100 and 192.168.0.120 respectively.

    Is this a wireless setup or a LAN?

    Don't use DHCP on LAN PCs. Only for wireless.

    yup. But your LAN still uses an address. wondering if its set to automatic and if you have any problem over the LAN connection.

    Presume that you have been using LAN up until now?

    My LAN using IP addresses in range from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.4 also 192.168.0.254 used as a DLink router address.

    I was using wireless before but without DHCP.

    Also no other DHCP servers on LAN installed

    weird. Have you tried changing the settings out of the classic 192.168.0.1 setup. I.E.

    Lan TCP/IP setup

    IP add 205.17.5.33
    Subnet MAsk 255.255.255.224

    Use Router as DHCP Server

    Starting add 205.17.5.33
    Ending add 205.17.5.62

    See if 192.168.238.133 persists.

    WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO DO? This is not a LAN address but a public IP range!
    If you want to change the non-routed addresses SAFELY, use the 10.x.x.x subnet, eg
    10.1.1.1 as the router, MASK 255.255.255.0 DHCP range 10.1.1.2 -- 10.1.1.254

    still don't understand how changing IP address should solve my problem?

    I don't think it will but the address 205.17.5.33 was just blatantly wrong.

    you can try an address change to see of the router will track the change
    properly.

    Of course, you should still update the firmware for the device.

    surly if you want to force a change you (as a test) can use this IP range (temp) to force that change away from the 192.168.0. otherwise you will probable still see the address you dont want pop up again. And its not wrong. Its just out side the reserved private network range. It doesnt matter what range you use as a test.
