OK...I'm back to the only place/people that consistently gives me accurate help when troubleshooting. Thanks in advance!

I'm trying to re-setup my dad's old (2006) D-Link Wireless Range Extender (was working fine with a Netgear Wireless G router; replaced that router with the same model, only newer). I think I've figured out how to log into it now (step one, right?), but I have to "manually configure my computer's IP address to a static address within the range of the extender" (like 192.168.0.XX) and then enter 192.168.0.30 into my browser.

My question: how do I "manually configure my computer's IP address to a static address within the range of the extender"? I imagine that's in the Network settings pane. Just not sure exactly what I should be doing once there.

System Preferences > Network > Advanced > TCP/IP tab > Configure IPv4 set to Manually > IPv4 set to IP you want, Subnet mask set 255.255.255.0, Router IP (depends on the router, but maybe 192.168.1.1). Then click OK and it should be set. That's how I have mine manually setup.

Not working for me...

Hi,
I have tried to follow these instructions and it doesn't seem to be working for me. My ip address is XXX.XXX.X.12. so I change the last two digits to ....22.
I left my router ip set as 192.168.0.1 and when i apply the changes I lose my internet connection.

i have played with these numbers a little to no avail...

using macbook running lion.

Does anybody have any suggestions?

The XXX.XXX.X.12 address is differing from "192.168.0.12" I guess?
Does it look like this?

You need to also set the Gateway and DNS server to the same as the router address, otherwise you won't have Internet.

You can input the DNS server IP address directly. If you know your ISP’s DNS server IP address.
