DSL Router: Pirelli DRG A125G
Switch: SpeedTouch 585 DSL Router
- connected (cable) with two computers, one XP, one Windows 7
- DHCP Disabled.
The XP computer connects without problem, acquiring automatically the Default Gateway of the DSL Router. But the Windows 7 computer is not able to connect: Status "Unidentified Network", Connectivity "No network access". Default Gateway "Blank", IPv4 on different subnet: 169.254.164.18 instead of expected 192.168.1.x
The Windows 7 pc connects fine on Wireless Connection, but the problem is the Local Area Connection, which is what I want to use.
So what should I do from here, shouldn't Windows 7 be able to acquire correct settings automatically, when XP does?
I see now the problem is not with Windows 7; It's also on XP if switching LAN ports, so rather; Only one pc-LAN port on the switch acquires working IP/gateway. Testing with only a single computer, DSL router connected to Switch LAN-1, then pc must be connected to LAN-2 for it to work, else it fails with "unidentified network / no network access". So may I assume this is incorrect setup of the switch?
Just discovered that SpeedTouch Port 3 and 4 are defined as "video". I guess this means it can not work as a switch...(?) http://img1.uploadscreenshot.com/images/orig/8/22719475753-orig.png
