D-Link bluetooth kills LAN over sat feed- how to fix?

Discussion in 'Windows Networking' started by Timothy Buchanan, Dec 6, 2005.

  1. I use a Direcway 6000 and D-Link DSS-5+ to run a LAN for two PCs.I attempted
    to install a D-Link DBT-120B4 bluetooth on the USB port. The bluetooth
    installed and a connection was made between the PC and a Palm Tungsten, but
    the LAN connection was destroyed. IPConfig returns strange numbers. D-Link
    support says the IP Address needs to be renewed by my ISP, but Earthlink
    tech doesn't know anything about that.

    The DW6000 uses address, and there doesn't seem to be any way to
    change that. The switch assigns to the first computer, then .3
    and so on. Subnet mask is, at least on this computer.

    First - Is there any way to renew the IP Address from this end, and would
    that fix the LAN?

    Second- If that can't be done, would replacing the internet switch with a
    router that has a variable default gatteway address help? I have heard that
    bluetooth devices hate the address (which, if true, seems really
    stupid to me).

    Last- Any other suggestions for making this work?

    Thanks. Please post responses here.
