I need to know the IP Address, Subnet Mask and the Default Gateway settings to be entered in the Properties window of the TCP/IP Properties dialog box. These have somehow gone away. I was unable to browse the net today, inspite of the router connecting, and the router properties (192.168.1.1) page showing the status as connected. On checking the TCP/IP properties, I noticed that all the settings were blank. I had written down the original DNS server settings, which I entered in the Preferred and Alternate DNS Servers area, but I dont remember the IP Address, Subnet mask and the Default gateway settings. Right now, it is set to obtain an IP address automatically, but earlier there were specific values for them. Can someone check and let me know what these settings are?

Thanks!I have already entered the DNS server settings. What I dont remember is the IP address, Subnet mask and the Default gateway. I have a feeling the gateway was 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.2, but am not sure.

Actually theres no need for specifying any TCP/IP configuration values... Unless u want to do some port forwarding...In that case...IP Address: 192.168.1.2Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1Again the IP address u set completely depends on u... But make sure that u are adding the port-forwarding rules to the ip address that u have specified in this LAN configuration...
