Wireless, why must you torment me? http://elementscommunity.org/forum/index.php?topic=35130.msg442777#msg442777
« on: December 27, 2011, 10:06:16 am »
Usually I never post random topics like this on the forums unless the issue vexes me to no avail, but I'm running out of options. :(


As of late (specifically, a week or so ago), my internet connection started to get fussy and soon enough, my wireless connection just decided to 'die'. The problem being that there's an IP Address Conflict, meaning that there's another 'device' somewhere that apparently has the same IP address as my computer, which prevents my computer from getting the connection (even though the 'signal' is excellent to the router).

The thing is, all the other computers in my house (all my family members have their own computer ^^; ), still can obtain wireless. Resetting the router probably wouldn't do or change anything, especially if all of the other computers are unaffected. Likewise, I can connect to the computer just fine via a cable (as frustrating as it is...), but I'd much rather prefer being in my room than having to go downstairs, connect to the router directly via wires in the cold, and trying to do work when other people need to use the desktop (not to mention, I'd like my privacy when playing elements :P ).

A few things that I tried are...:
-Diagnose and Repair -> resetting my computer's wireless connection/checking to make sure the adapter is on/acquiring a new IP address
-IP Config renewal*
-Resetting my computer
-Restoring my computer to an earlier point (system restore)
-Updated anti-virus and system requirements
-Moved the router/my computer to different locations to test connectivity

* = I have no idea what it means when I require 'elevation' in order to do the code in the command shell. Will it affect my router/other computers when I do an IP flushdns/release/renewal?

I have connected to another wireless network called 'linksys', but that didn't last very long nor was it very effective in terms of internet speed. *sigh*

I know this seems weird, but do you guys think that this could be a Rogue DHCP (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rogue_DHCP) issue that has afflicted my computer only? Or should I (to the agitation of my siblings) reset the router and pray that they're not downloading anything imporant to see if that will affect my wireless connection?


I know this section is about talking about technology, rather than solving issues accompanied with it, but I don't think this belongs in troubleshooting, as that's elements based. <=)


SIDENOTE: I have a Windows Vista. This computer -is- getting fairly old, and I did have a similar issue like this before back then.

It's difficult to help you without knowing your router config page.
Anyway, i think you should access the router configuration and then search for a page that makes associations between MAC Address and IP.
You should make sure that every different MAC Address is associated to a different IP.
I don't know how to help better than this without seeing, but maybe you can post a screenshot if something isn't clear.

Odd.  My internet provider did something weird to the connection recently and now I've been getting this IP conflict message occasionally when I log on.  However, aside from a message appearing that annoys me by requiring me to dismiss it, it hasn't done anything to my connection or my computer.

Question: How long has this been lasting for you? Have you been still getting this conflict message as of late? And do you have a Windows Vista like me as well? :O

1)  It lasted about a week.
2)  No, it stopped some time ago.
3)  No.

My best suggestion would be rebooting the router. :/ Maybe do it at a time when you are home alone or everybody is eating dinner or something?

It could have just been something wit your dhcp settings. At my house, i had 2 dlna media servers and 5 laptops
 connected (not all my laptops) and for some reason, only 3 computers were connecting and nothing else.  It turned out to be my dhcp settings. What I did to fix it was going to my routers configuration page and turning enable dhcp to off, saving, and then turning it back on.

i agree
Cut out the spam. Now. You're not contributing to discussion, you're needlessly necroing old topics, and your posts will soon be deleted by a moderator anyway, so you will still be unable to participate in a tournament.
Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

Did that, nothing happened.  :-X

Major update though: I've been getting wireless by manually connecting to the internet each time when I turn my computer on (so basically when I turn on the computer, I have to connect it by opening the network connection page and doing it like that), making sure my computer never 'sleeps' (it hibernates instead when it's inactive, saving power + not freezing), and ensuring that the connection isn't automatic for the time being. Still don't know why it won't connect automatically, but for now this band-aid solution will do I hope.
