Modem with 2 ip numbers

Q: Modem with 2 ip numbers

I've had this dsl modem for a couple years now and have always to my knowledge been able to use it via only one ip number.i've been streaming video using webcamxp and other software/.today my modem began acting stupid by disconnecting once an hour and if I shut off pc of at all,i wind up having to manually reset the modem by unplugging it for a few seconds and then back in again.i eventually noticed that while the webcam is streaming video ,my lan connection on the pc shows the ip number i'm familiar with while my dsl modem shows one that's new(so to speak) I entered both ip numbers in to the webcamxp and found that the modem streams using either ip number..if I go to the what's my ipnumber site,it will display whichever number I have entered in to the webcamxp software//.is it normal for a modem to use 2 numbers as I don't believe this has occurred in my case before.i'm wondering if it has to do with the modem suddenly disconnecting now and then and too,having to reset it everytime I boot.i have att dsl ,no live landline just dead phone cord from the modem to the wall.

If you have other devices and they also loose internet connection at the same time, I would recommend contacting AT&T.

Hi all.

I have a "brand new" V92 modem (I know, with all VOIP options today, that sounds stupid).

I'd like to use dialer.exe or other free/native software to dial out local phone numbers. Olitec (the modem constructor) provided me a driver for Vista that seems to work good in Seven. Once installed, I can dial, my friend's phone rings, when he pics it up I can hear him, but he can't hear me. Some times I hear my own voice in my head set instead (a distant echo). My mic is working ok. I know that cause other applications can use it.

I'd also like to see an incoming call on the screen. Can that be done ?


A:Using a V92 modem to call local phone numbers (no VOIP)

Depends on the "voice telephone" software you have and what it's capabilites are. A PC makes a poor voice telephone and for that reason the "hot" thing to use it for a voice phone back in the old XP days has diminished to the point dial-up modems are not even offered as an option on many new PC's.

Hey everybody.

I don't know if the title is a good one for this problem, but here goes.

I have a column that has numbers in this format: 54321-1234

Now, I want to take off the last 4 numbers, and the dash, from all the numbers in the column, using a formula. So that the output would be: 54321.

I want it so the first 5 numbers stay the same, but the dash and last 4 are gone. Is this possible?

This was asked before by KlausdB:

"I have 4 x HDDs on SATA AHCI (Intel Controller) in Native Mode and 1 x ESATA on Win 7 Pro X64.
I noted that looking in Admin. Tools\Computer Management\Storage (as an example) the 1st HDD (Port 0 in the AHCI BIOS) is showing as "Disk 2" instead of my expectation of

"Disk 1".
Selecting the Drive's Properties correctly shows the "Location 0 (Channel 0, Target 0, Lun 0)".
I also note that the Disk Number allocation in Windows will change randomly after some reboots/startups - going anywhere from "Disk 1" to "Disk 4".  I can force/replicate this

behaviour by removing the ESATA drive.
Is this expected behaviour?
It doesn't appear to create any operating issues at this stage, however, is there a way I can force the Drive to always map to (eg) Device 0 --> Disk 1, Device 1 --> Disk 2,


 This was answered by Nicholas Li:

"As far as I know, how the disk is plugged physically and the order it is displayed are not related. For a simple example, if a drive is plugged to SATA interface 4 and it is the only disk, it will be displayed as Disk 0. If there is no related issue about
the disk order, I think we can safely ignore this."

I have three SATA hard drives :
Main system/boot drive , WD Caviar Black 1 TB, connected to the SATA 0 port
A backup drive, identical WD Caviar Black 1 TB, connected to the SATA 1 port
Another dirve, Hitachi 1 TB, connected to the SATA 2 port
When I installed Win 7, only the main drive was connected... and it remains the only drive with active/system/boot partitions.

All three drives reporr correctly in the BIOS, and in the right order, but why is it that only one of the drive (the one on SATA port 1) has a "SATA:" prefix and the others have a "HDD:" prefix ?

Why is it that the assignment of Disk #0, 1, 2 ( as seen in Disk Maanger or DiskPart) does not seem to have nay rhyme or reason?

I would have expected:

- the hardrive connected to SATA port O, to be assigned as Disk 0
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 1, to be assigned as Disk 1
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 2, to be assigned as Disk 2

but instead, I have:

- the hardrive connected to SATA port 2, is assigned as Disk 0
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 0, is assigned as Disk 1
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 1, is assigned as Disk 2

Just curious why that is.

I am assuming there is no way to chagne this. Its not something I would dream of reinstalling Windows 7 to correct ( even if it did correct it).

A:SATA port numbers vs assignemnt of Disk numbers/

Best advice, leave it alone. It may bother your (and others) sense of order but it won't affect how anything works, and no re-installing Windows won't change it.

There is a phone dialer hooked up on this computer will that make a difference if it will dial out or not? there is only one place to plug the RJ11 line in. Most have the phone jack and the line jack this one doesn't. This guy had a bunch of spyware and a few trojans etc on his computer and asked it I would help him.

I don't know the model or the type. The stuff I put in when installing it in the control panel(it was already physically installed in the computer, but wasn't dialing) is a bunch of guesses.

This is all the info I have about a modem that refuses to work right:

"Port: COM1" - I set it up that way when intalling through the control panel and I have no idea if that's how it should be set up.
"Interrupt: 4

UART: NS 16550AN

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Hi All...

I just got a new PC on Monday - here are the specs off the top of my head (I am at work, PC is at home) - HP Pavillion 764, 2.6 Ghz., 512 MB DDR Ram, Lucent Modem, 120 GB hard drive, 128 MB nVidia GeForce MX 440 video card, Windows XP Home.

I connect via MSN 8 dial up. No cable/dsl in my area at all.

Ok, with my old PC I would get a consistent connection of 32000 bps. Now, with the new PC I am connecting at 21.6 or 24000 bps - which makes for a huge performance hit since I am an online gamer.

I was ok with the 32k connection - a lot of latency - but this is worse with the 21 & 24k connection.

I am still using the same phone lines, dialing the same #'s and using the same version software for internet connection.
The only difference is the PC, OS & Modem really.

Why am I connecting slower now and how can I fix this?
Do you think I should swap modems?

So like the title says, i used to have a Cable modem internet in my house a while ago, then i asked the company for a DSL connection, they never asked for the old Cable modem so at the moment i have both modems working, my question is, is there any way to put them together so i get the speed from each modem put into a single network?

Thx in advance.

First, I have a computer which is connecting with an external modem. It has worked fine for a year, but now the modem connects then redials over and over again. It is connecting and verifying then says logged on then immediately redials. I have replaced the external modem with the same result. It's on COM3 and I changed that and the modem speed. I'm thinking about reloading windows because I'm out of ideas. What do you think? It's windows 2000 pro.

Now on my Mom's computer. I got mad and deleted here TCP/IP Dial-up in Network Neighborhood because she was going over her 5 hour limit on the internet and yelling at me about it. So I quickly disconnected it because when I deleted the dial-up connection my nephew made a new one and took her over her 5 hours again. Long story, sorry. Needless to say I broke it. She has Windows ME and I haven't been able to add the TCP/IP Dial-up back and get it working? I don't know what else to try. Any ideas?

Hi Everyone,

I can't seem to access my Westell 2200 from the usual address:
I can't remember if I may have changed any settings to have this happen. I know my DLink 634m has no addresses with configured with it.

I've even tried connecting the modem directly to a computer to access it and no luck. I've already done the "hold reset for 10 seconds". Is there another way to do a hard reset so everying on the modem is factory default? Is there another way around this? I can't access my modem and I can't get Internet either.

Thanks in advance

So I am updating my churches network and came to a setup I have never seen before. No one at my church knows anything about the setup except when they built the addition (about 5 years ago) they ran "a bunch of Cat5". They ran 3-8 jacks in every room. I have a closet full of about 50 cat5 cables of which only 16 actually have RJ45s on them and only 5 of which actually go to a computer. That stuff I was able to figure out. What perplexes me is the hardware setup.... I have seen modem to router to switch.

This install has a Comcast Modem with a built in 4 port router. 2 lines go to separate magic jack pro jacks. One is a straight cable to a wireless linksys router. The last is a straight cable to a 16 port switch. There is then a crossover cable from the wireless router to the switch as well. So on the switch port 15 goes direct to the modem and port 16 is a crossover to the router and back to the same modem..... I can figure out for the life of me why there is a loop going on here.

In either case the setup worked. So the duplicate line did not have an issue. I am so lost.

A:Modem to Router to Switch back to Modem, what....?

I would disconnect the cable going from the switch back to the modem/router combo. You're right. This loop is not proper. Loops should never exist on a switched network. I'm curious as to whether traffic is being forwarded around the network properly or if the switch being used has spanning tree support and might have shut down one of the ports wired up to the upstream network device.

Hi everyone. I have had a laptop given to me which has a Pretec 33.6 modem card in it. The rub is that it doesn`t have the dongle with it. Let me tell you, I have spent 3 days doing google searches, went to Pretec web site, went to all the sites supposed to have all the dongles, and E-bay, don`t find anything that says Pretec 33.6 modem dongle for sale. Since it is my first encounter with a laptop, and a modem card, that I am off base here, and that the dongle doesn`t have to be a Pretec, but could be another brand, and still work. Any insight, and or help into pointing me in the right direction to a purchase will be appreciated.

My uncle has an HP all in one unit Omni running Home Edition SP1 64 bit that connects using a cable modem. The other day it stopped connecting and Ipconfig displayed an invalid IP address - 169 something.

I brought his unit home and connected it to my DSL modem. Immediate connection. IP address 192 something. I took it back to his house and it didn't connect again. He had the cable guys there for 3.5 hours Tuesday. They showed him that their laptop connected using his modem. I wasn't there to see it.

However he has an ancient XP laptop that connects just fine using his modem.

I now have his unit here at my house, and, once again, it's working perfectly.

A:Connects with DSL Modem - Not with Cable Modem

It sounds like the Network Adapter in the HP is defective. The stall before the balls coalescing indicates a problem with hardware.

If all computers except the HP connect to the modem on the same cable (a 192 address indicates Ethernet connection) then you can assume the modem is OK and remove it from the equation.

If other computers connect to the modem using different cables then you might suspect the cable.

You could try uninstalling (removing from Device Manager) and reinstalling the Network Adapter. It should reinstall automatically on the next startup.

It might also be interesting to see what happens if you disable the device, to see if the startup stall disappears. You could disable it in Device Manager, but if you can disable it in the BIOS that would be an even better test.

if you are typing in word, try to change over to an arabic font (not Adobe Arabic).

P.S. you will be able to type english numbers when you switch the keyboard to english and your font is an arabic font.

Weird but since updating the driver on my ATI Radeon HD4800 card numbers have started appearing in the top right of two progs on my PC. One is Google Earth and the other is a plug in for Photoshop. The numbers are yellow or red and change at random with mouse movement. I'm not on any medication
I've attach a screen shot...
Any ideas?

Heres the story, and it happened to me too. I found the most current graphics driver. It made my screen twice as large and it could not fit on the monitor. Resolution changes and DPI changes would not help.
I would go back to the earlier driver. If it does not work use a system restore point.

I have some old hardware with an RS232 (9 pin) connection to my notebook. I have downloaded a driver for the Serial to USB converter, and my Vista Enterprise OS seems happy with it. However, the hardware only allows communication with COM ports 1 to 4, and as far as I can judge my USB ports are 8, 9 and 10. Can I renumber these ports to make communication possible, or is there another way of doing this?

I have found a program that may be able to help but I have never used it.

I have norton firewall and antivirus, and am glad I do. Anyway, when i get hit, i can trace it back to the general area, such as the lastest from University of Michigan. If i have the computer IP number, can i track it further. can you type the ip number next to www. and send it. if so are there complications? I usually get hit every time I am on the internet. High risk, the whole thing. I know which programs are allowed so they are not essential to the system.

i need a serial number for windows vist home basic i lost mine thanks for the help

A:Serial numbers

Hello Sammy,

If you still have your Vista Home Basic installed and activated with your key number, then you can use the program below to retrieve it from within Vista.

Product Key Number

If you have a OEM (store bought) computer then the key number will be on a sticker on the bottom (laptop) or back (desktop case) of the computer.

Asking for a product key number is not allowed since this is advocating piracy. It will get you permanently banned, so do not ask for one again.

I am going to skip the story behind this deal and ask how to get through to Windows and explain my delima. I tried to activate XP PRO after a complete transfer from one disk to an oem disk with XP Home. I was told that my numbers where bad after trying to activate, and that was it. I was not transferred or given a chance to talk to a real person, just contact vendor to whom sold me the disc. I had never had a problem in the past using this product. I have had the disc for over a year now with no problems. It has been installed several different times on several different computers. I had bought the disc along with the sp2 update install disc. It was selling as Windows XP PRO with SP2, Anyway, I do not expect help in a matter concerning bootleg products, but would just like to know a number I can use to get hold of Windows support personal and find out what the deal is. I can understand to many installs, but with that you can at least try and get new numbers and or talk to someone.

A:[SOLVED] bad numbers

Donk here again, It sounds as though I may be screwed. I Googled activation and found a site that has explained what the deal might just be. I new the disc had unlimited installs which meant an OEM install disc. Like I said, all had been good for a little over a year maybe two not sure, but they have now put into place a program that limits OEM install disc's. I just happen to have been sold said product. I had also noticed that after trying to return to said site it no longer offers my product, or any product dealing XP, Office, or Vista. I guess when you buy a product for a price that seems to good to be true well... it is. Buyer beware. It's called greed, I wanted something for nothing, and I got nothing.

I spent the evening trying to brush up on what all the numbers mean for purchasing memory. I am pretty compfortable with the Cas Latency and the other numbers such as ?4-4-4-12? (lower is better is my understanding) What I don?t have a handle on is the other numbers e.g.

OCZ Platinum Revision 2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory

DDR 800, what do I make of this number ?(800)?? Do I try to match this with the Motherboard Specs if it says ?Memory Standard
DDR2 533/667/800 and up to 1200 MHz?

And what about ?(PC2 6400)? What does this all mean?

I am putting a Christmas list together to do an upgrade,(budget = $1000) the following components are what I am considering for purchase. There is so much ram out there, it will make your head spin. This aspect seems to be the most difficult for me to figure out. I want to get the most bang for my buck. I am using this new PC for gaming, I don?t really dabble in overclocking, but it would be nice to go for it. Here is the list so far.

Also remember to post any problems or questions that you have in the appropriate forums

With regards to your question, the "800" refers to the clock speed of the ram (in MHz). As long as your motherboard is compatible with it then i think you'll be ok.

The rest of your hardware sounds good, you'll need more than a 250W psu though.
