Hi guys, im new here and not much of a network guy. My desktop is connected to my dlink router, and my laptop is connected wireless via router. Both pc's run vista 64.
From what i was told every device should have a different ip address. But my pc and router seem to have the same.
So far my "obtain ip address automatically" is checked. Everything seems to work fine, But when i try to change my pc's ip address to lets say 192.168.0.X, my internet stops working.
If I change the ip address of the router to 192.168.0.X, my default gateway changes to the same address. Im assuming thats normal.
Here is a screen of my network map if anything seems to be out of the ordinary
sry for the newb questions guys, Im seriously considering a networking for dummies book lol....i really am no jokes
