How to input IP Address

I over-enthusiastically 'cleaned out' my computer.

The upshot is that I can no longer access the internet or email.
I checked with BT who assure me that there is nothing wrong
with my Router or their phone line after running some checks

I cannot config /release or renew as normal.
I am left with 0.0.0.0

It seems I need to enter the IP address 192.18.2.1
into my PC, (presumably Windows).
How/where do I do this, please.

Thanks...Robert

Ooops!! That should be 192.168.2.1.
No matter...I just need to know where to enter it and how.

Thanks again.

Try your Web browser address bar.

I think it is 192.168.1.1 and you enter it in the address bar of your
browser. It will then open a web page on your router.

But before you do that, have you run the New Connection wizard in XP?

Your best bet is to click Start / Help, then look for help
on TCP/IP. The item "Configure your TCP/IP Settings"
is what you need.

Re: How to input IP Address

Thanks to you all for your responses.
I am most grateful. None of the options
appear to work, and some, like inputting to
the browser address bar I had already tried.
I must have another issue here.
Maybe I need to reinstall WinXP....Yes??

Regards
Robert

Before you do something that drastic, have a look at:

No, you do not need to reinstall XP.
Instead, you must setup the network using the wizards.

Go to a command prompt, start, run, cmd.

Type ipconfig /release and press enter, then ipconfig /renew and press
enter.

Do you get a message that no adapter is in a state that it can be released
or renewed?

No, you do not. The problem is elsewhere. Plus, that address is likely
*your router* and you will generate an address conflict. Use 2.5 instead,
for the moment. However, if you use fixed IP addresses you also likely
need to know the DNS server addresses; if you don't know this and do need
them, you'll get to the router and nowhere else.

Set your network adapter to DHCP (automatic) rather than fixed, and this is
in Control Panel, Network, right-click on the adapter and choose Properties,
then TCP/IP and properties.

If you can't release and renew and have this work, close from there, go to
Device Manager and uninstall the network adapter, then restart the system
and allow it to be re-detected and reinstalled.

Finally you can reset TCP/IP by going to a command prompt and issuing the
following command:

netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt

Also try 192.168.0.1 It is typed into the address bar just like you
would type yahoo.com or whatever.

Open a CMd prompt, type:

PING 192.168.2.1

... and report back with the results.

You should look at the wiring again too. The "modem" should plug into
the router port that is by itself, all the way to one side. Then run a
cable from any of the five adjacent ports to the computer's NIC or
Ethernet card.

Other things to try:

Flush DNS

Click Start, Run, type:

IPConfig /FlushDNS [Press Enter key]

NETSH

Click Start, Run, type:

netsh winsock reset

Press Enter key

Restart the system

You can also try this software download from a working machine:
