On this page, you
will find the network settings of your PC for use with a router
solution (either hardware or software solution). This information
is published on a seperate page, as it's being used for several
other pages as well. The settings work for TCP/IP networks, either
UTP or BNC (coax)
based, using a router. This router can be a separate
device, a (A)DSL/Cable modem or
a server with for example WinRoute,
all of them with DHCP activated.
This page focusses on Windows 95, 98 and
Related pages for different Operating Systems
are: Windows 2000 and XP, Macintosh
OS 7 of 8 and Macintosh
WINDOWS 95, 98, ME
Configuring the PC's for use with TCP/IP is relative
Start the PC (Win9x/ME) and click with the right mouse
button "Network Neighborhood" and choose "Properties".
No select the "TCP/IP" protocol that
goes with the network-card connected to the router and click"Properties".
Make sure "Obtain an IP address automatically"
is checked. Click "OK" and click "OK"
once more. The computer now would like to restart: do so. The configuration
is done now.
TIP: Sometimes the connection
appears to have a problem finding the router. In the previous window,
click "Gateway" and add a DEFAULT GATEWAY.
This should be the IP-address of your router!
You can verify (after the reboot) if the settings did
OK, by starting the WINIPCFG application. This is done
by clicking the Windows START menu. Then select the RUN
option and type WINIPCFG and press enter or click 'OK'.
The application now appears. Make sure you select the proper network adapter
(so: NOT the PPP connection which is selected by default).
