Completely Screwed Up My Network

1262 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  johnwill
Alright this is complicated (to me atleast). The network was working fine until I had to screw around with the router to get XLink Kai working.

I have a D-Link DI-614+ router. My desktop is connected to the router via ethernet cable and is online and working fine. I am also connected wirelessly on my laptop to the router. I also have a network cable going from the router to my Xbox (this is used with the xlink kai program). I can not get the laptop and desktop to share files or anything.

I'm not that great at networking, so I don't know that much. In order to run that program, I changed the IP address to a static ip address on my desktop. It is now and the Xbox program works fine. My laptop however is not a static IP and just grabs one automatically. I checked the work groups and they are both part of the 'Kohon' workgroup. I have no idea what is wrong and have been screwing around with it all day. All your help will be greatly appreciated.

When you changed your IP address to a static address, my guess is you forgot to set the default gateway to Setting the manual IP address could have also disabled NETBIOS over TCP/IP.
