Specs: Windows 7
Hi all,

I have one desktop computer and one laptop.
The laptop receives wireless signal from my router and the PC is connected to the cable.
My question is:How can I assign two different i.p. addresses to each of my computers?

If you router is configured correctly with NAT and DHCP turned it is is almost impossible not to get two different IP address. If they are both getting the same IP address there is something wrong with your configuration and the signal from the Modem is going straight through the router and doing nothing.

Explain how you are connecting them? Is this ADSL or Cable?

I have cable broadband not ADSL
So the laptop receives the signal from the router.
The PC is connected to the internet via a cable running from one of the router's 4 slots.
The router itself is connected to one of the 2 slots of a little white box (don't know what is called).
That little white box is connected directly to the main cable.

I hope my explanation was good enough.:)

The little white box you refer to will be the Modem.

Which socket are you connecting the Modem to the router. There should be four LAN sprockets and a WAN socket. The Modem should be connected to the WAN socket. Connecting it to one of the LAN sockets will produce the symptoms you describe.

If by chance you have an ADSL router that has four LAN sockets and an RH-11 telephone socket then it wont work with cable. Whati's the Model number of this Router and Modem?

You shouldn't have to. The router will do that just fine. Do you have a issue or were you just asking how to if you wanted to assign a static ip?

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
