The following is from the event log. I do have a wireless router, and the range defaults to the 192.168.1... range. I can not change it to 137.

Event Log follows:
The DHCP allocator has disabled itself on IP address 192.168.1.102, since the IP address is outside the 192.168.137.0/255.255.255.0 scope from which addresses are being allocated to DHCP clients.

From what I understand (and I am not a network expert), "192.168.137.0" means that the range would fall under the 192.168.137.0 to 192.168.137.xxx (the router would be 192.168.137.0 and others can be anything higher) where the xxx represents the maximum allowable number (I forget) so you can choose 192.168.137.3 or 192.168.137.152, etc. or change the range to match the needs of your network. Servers and network core equipment is typically the lowest numbers and typically are set as fixed and for most computers they are assigned by the DHCP. For "192.168.1.102" you would need to change the range to 192.168.1.0 as above.

As I said, I am no network expert and if I am wrong in my understanding of it or of your question, I am sorry and others may add or correct this. You really should have put this question in the Network Forum for better results.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Use your router's configuration utility which opens in any web browser.

I know how to open it in the web browser. What do I do after I get it open?

I did not realize I had cut off my opening message. I wanted to ask how do I "change the scope to include the IP address, or change the IP address to fall within the scope."?
