Help on Error Message Nifts
I am having a problem with an error message when trying to connect to BTinternet, with a BT Voyager 220v ADSL Voice Router, the error meesage is as follows-: "Unable to correct Default Gateway", I was asked to get some information off the PC (which is not mine) and is as follows-:
Host Name = evo51c
Prin Dns Sub = (blank)
Node = Hybrid
Ip Routing = No
Wins = No
Physical address 00.00.F0.2B.36.49
dhcp = yes
autoconfig = yes
Auto IP 169.254.128.226
Subnet Mask 255.255.0.0
Def Gateway 192.168.68.1.5
On attempting to use the 'Router Manager' (BT Help) it returns a message saying "Unable to connect to the Router"

looks to me as if the auto ip is wrong.
and is the default gateway ip supposedto be that? looks like an extra .68 which isnt possible so it must be a typo.
afaik the default gateway should be 192.168.1.1 and you can set the ip for the computer to 192.168.1.x , x being anything from 2-254

You are correct Vishal, Default Gateway should read 192.168.1.5
How do I correct this?

with a friend of mine having the same router, and i set it up for him only yesterday, his default ips were different.
has the router ip settings changed?
you can try manually configuring the network ups to see if its the problem.
find your local area connection, click properties on it, open internet protocol (tcpip)
use these ip addresses
ip address 192.168.1.10
default gateway 192.168.1.1
then open up your browser and goto the webpage 192.168.1.1 and see if it works.

Thanks Vishal, still a little confused!, have looked at my own Network Configuration, and the only two settings it will allow me to input manually are the IP Address, and the DNS, the other two, the subnet, and the default gateway are not show, or am I being thick er summat??, or is it different on dial-up which I am on at the moment...

you need to change the network port details, not the dialup...
does it look anything like this?

Sorry Vishal. being on a dial up and quite slow connection at that, I have only just seen your graphics, no the information does not look like you supplied on my PC, the subnet, and default gateway information is not there, just IP Addy, and DNS

if its for your friends pc, maybe the pc they use will be like that..
