Need help with a Local IP and Starting IP Issue

    I can set my local IP address to without any problems, but when I change the starting IP address from to I lose all connectivity and cannot get back into the web GUI and have to reset with the button on the router.

    Edit: Sometimes when changing the local IP from to .0.1 I have issues and need to do a hard reset on the router too.

    I'm probably going about this the wrong way, but I can't figure this out for the life of me, any help would be appreciated.

    You don't want your starting IP address to be the same as your router's IP. Starting address of 2 would be ok, or any other number different than your router's ip, just as long as it's outside your subnet mask.

    I knew it was something stupidly easy, thanks for the help. Now if I could only get my wireless adapter to work with WPA.

    If you're using XP, there is a WPA update. Of course, your wireless card has to be able to support it. I'd check for an update to see if your wireless card manufacturer has an update. Some come with a utility as well. There is also a product from McAfee that supports WPA on unsupported platforms. The utility is free. Here's the link:

    They'll want you to buy the product but the free program is fine. Get yourself a strong passphrase to use with WPA. Here's a link to a password generator that changes every time you refresh the page:

    It's a wireless xbox adapter, originally a MN740 (doesn't support WPA) but I hacked the firmware so it thinks it's a DGL3420 (does support WPA). I can get into the web GUI via lan at for the DGL3420 and set it to WPA and set a passphrase etc. But, when it comes to connecting the Xbox to the network via the adapter it's a no-go. In the microsoft dashboard it sees the adapter as a D-Link product but the only security options it gives are No security and 64 and 128 bit WEP, not the original Microsoft product. So right now I just have mac filtering enabled because I don't want to bother with WEP.
