Default Re: Wireless router issue

I do take issue with the Wii always pinging the DHCP server for an address every 30sec or so; the assigned address is good for two hours, for crying out loud...

You could try this:

Click Start,
Click Control Panel,
Double Click Network Connections,
Right click your wireless connection, then click properties,

In the box that says "This connection uses the following items:", click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), then click the properties button.

Make sure "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically" are selected.

OK your way out of all the boxes and hopefully all will be good after that.

I have it set to obtain it automatically, the problem is I don't want it to. I need preferred DNS server address and alternate DNS address.

You should be able to login to the router and find your dns server on the Internet page of the setup. Depending on the router it might have a different name, but look around on the settings pages and one of them should have a DNS server the router is using.

Or while it is set to automatic and working you can go to Start>Run>type CMD>type IPCONFIG /all> and it will tell you there what the dns server is.

Don't take life too seriously -- no one gets out alive. Plus, who wants to arrive to the hereafter in pristine condition wearing a suit and tie?
