Ip problem

I have cisco soho router 97

I have installed a fixed configuration of ip numbers

192.168.254.1 router

These computers can surf on the internet

192.168.254.2 computer 1

192.168.254.3 computer 3

192.168.254.4 computer 4

192.168.254.5 computer 5

the router is connected to a hub with another 6 computers

192.168.254.6 computer 6

192.168.254.7 computer 7

192.168.254.8 computer 8

192.168.254.9 computer 9

192.168.254.10 computer 10

The computers that have an ip number >192.168.254.7 have problems on working on my LAN

they can acces the lan but after a while they are disconnected, if i restart my PC it runs again for a while

do you know why ?

Re: Ip problem

Hello,

if only one of your machines is affected, it sounds more like a problem with that particular machine. Can you try and check if the cable is connected properly, and maybe replace the network card on the affected machine ?

Regards,

Re: Ip problem

It is not only one computer but all the computers above the Ip number 192.168.254.7 and if i change a computer that has problems with an Ip above 192.168.254.7 with for example 192.168.254.6 the problems for that computer are solved but i have 10 computers so i must go above the 192.168.254.7.

The funny thing is that it works for sometimes 10 minutes

Re: Ip problem

did you check your subnet mask configuration of router and pcs? It sounds like you are using a 29 bit mask. It provides you a subnet 192.168.254.0 to 192.168.254.7, with usable addresses 192.168.254.1 to 192.168.254.6.

Re: Ip problem

Hai Kmoors ,

Mr.Nihal is very true

Change all the subnet mask including the router to 255.255.255.0,so that you can use the entire range 192.168.254.0.
