I lost the driver disk to the wireless router i am trying to use, but i have the firmware on the computer. I just dont have a valid ip address for the AP i am trying to connect. What would be a simple solution without spending any money
since you did not give us the router info (Make and Model) it is hard to give you an address but here are some you could try.
most other once 192.168.1.1
also try 126.96.36.199
another way ti find the info is connect your computer via network cable and find your Gateway. for that do the following:
go Start then Run in XP - (Windows key plus R in Vista and Windows 7), then type in the following, including all the spaces:- cmd /k ipconfig /all -- then press Enter and from the black form that shows up, take a note of the numeric code beside the word "gateway" -- usually something like 192.168.0.1. Type exit to close the black form.
