    Sorry if this has been discussed already... I have gone through
    a bunch of posts and didn't see anything that fit.

    Ok so I have been having some problems with my router.
    So I try to login to it to find out that I can't, page won't load,
    so I power cycle it. Now it won't give DHCP addresses. Router
    still works for the most part. I am online through it typing this,
    but no DHCP, no web GUI. I have tried reset for 30s but nothing
    changes. I have tried unplugging and holding reset on while
    plugging it in. The power light is solid and the lan lights are lit
    where I have computers connected. Any help would be appreciated.

    Also thought I should mention. I am running v23 SP1.
    And the wireless on the router isn't working. Usually
    won't let me connect and if it does it won't work even
    if I am using a static IP.

    In a command prompt type: ipconfig /release
    and wait for it to complete.
    Next type: ipconfig /renew
    and wait for it to complete. It should show the current IP of your PC, the router (gateway), etc. Hopefully you'll be able to get into the GUI and DHCP should be working again. Hope that helps. Good luck.
