How to move a computer onto a switch and keep the IP address?

I have a Mac Pro set to DHCP manual assign and a certain IP address that cannot change. I also have a printer plugged into a certain network jack; IP address less important. I am moving the physical location of the Mac Pro near this printer and the printer's network jack is the only one available. I'll have to plug both of these machines into the same network jack via switch/router. What switch/router is the right one to buy in 2013 (bonus if I can find it at Best Buy) and what the right way to set this up so the Mac Pro is still reachable at the same IP address on the network?

WIFI networking: two routers on the same network

Hi, I am trying to set up a surplus router as a NAS and torrent appliance, to integrate into an existing network. The setup will use two routers, one to provide network and internet to everyone, the other will use TomatoUSB and will be dedicated to torrenting. [more inside]

Planning for telnet on DHCP

I need some help on networking and ip addresses. I'm working on a project that uses a RN-XV Wifly module to connect to a home's wifi network. To use the device you will have a GUI that on the back-end telnets to the Wifly module and sends a serial string of commands. So if the Wifly address is 10.1.0.17, it would send: [more inside]

I have 2 DHCP servers, just need 1 to work

I have an Actiontec GT701WG that can supposedly act as a DHCP server, but nothing gets an IP address from it. Manually assigning IP addresses works fine, but that's a pain with several devices. I also have a Linksys WRT54G that I thought I could use as my DHCP server instead, but I can't get it to connect to the Actiontec with the static IP settings. How can I make this work without buying new hardware? [more inside]

SOHO network with DHCP and static routing?

In a home network, I'm using static routing on a router connected to my ISP connection, and added an additional router using DHCP. From the DHCP side, I'm able to connect to the internet, but am unable to reach any of the static addresses, nor can any of the static IPs reach through to the DHCP side. (How) can this be made to work? [more inside]

Help me get my new Airport to play nice with my old Linksys router

I just picked up an Apple Airport Extreme and am attempting to integrate it into my home network, and my old router is jealous. My intent is to use the Airport to serve IP addresses to all my devices via DHCP, and use its wireless capabilities for my 802.11g computers (looking forward to 802.11n). I've pressed my old Linksys WRT54G into use providing wireless access to my 802.11b devices (2 wifi Internet radios), to isolate them from dragging down the .g devices' wireless access speeds.

Slingbox won't get IP Address from DHCP server

SlingboxNetworkingWoesFilter: I recently got a Slingbox, and while I am quite happy with the product in theory, I'm stalled with networking problems and the Slingbox fails to get an IP address from the DHCP server. Network routing is being provided by Mac OS X's Internet Sharing feature, and while the DHCP log shows numerous DHCP DISCOVER requests from the Slingbox, no IP address is ever assigned. Read on for details. [more inside]

Windows using a Mac Printer

I have a printer on my MacMini and I want to be able to use it for print requests from my Windows XP laptop. I was able to get it working using CUPS and the MacMini's IP address, but the problem is that since the Mac is on a DHCP wireless network, the IP address can (and has) changed. Now printing from the laptop won't work. How do I identify the Mac from the laptop without using an IP address? [more inside]

How can I setup Windows 2003 server using a Dynamic IP Address?

I want to setup a Windows 2003 server using my dynamic IP address that I have from Comcast. How can I make this happen? I have a linksys Gateway (WCG200) that has the server and a few other computers connected to it. I am trying to setup a small server for my printing/web hosting/file sharing/remote access needs. I need to see how to setup my DNS & DHCP settings for this to happen. Also I have my own domain name which I would like to use. Can I use programs from companies like no-ip.com to setup my web site so if anyone types my registered domain it will find my site? Remember that I will be using a dynamic address. Or the last straw is to get a static IP address. Where can I do so(for the cheapest price)?

Help me find the log for Windows XP Pro's connection sharing

I use the Windows XP Professional Internet Connection Sharing to dish out my DSL access to a couple of people residing in the same location. How do I find just basic log information about this service? It magically dishes out DHCP access to them, but I can't even find how many IP addresses have been assigned, how many connections are active, and so on.
