Default Gateway problems
BBATES Jan-24-01 03:45 AM
When I look under properties for my network adapter, I see a default gateway. When I run ipconfig the line is blank. I cannot access my router because of this. Does anyone have an idea?

Set it in the properties of the instance of TCP/IP bound to the network adapter (Win 9x,SE,Me). Larry

That is the problem....It is set there. But it doesn't show up when I run ipconfig. Nor can I hit the other side of the router. I can however, ping the ip of the router on the local side

If you have more than one network adapter in your computer, only one of them can have the default gateway assigned to it. Dial-up? Larry

I only have one network card. I am using an isdn router as the gateway

A dial-up adapter is a network adapter. Larry

None of the other adapters have a default gateway bound to them

You may want to try uninstalling and reinstalling all network components. I would check the gateway right after installing the stock Windows stuff. Otherwise, please send me your network configuration, Windows version, network adapter info, etc.. Larry

Well I've fixed the problem, but I would like to know what caused the problem. I've added a NT 4 Server to the network and setup a DHCP server. That is when the problems began. I was using my isdn router as a DHCP server before that and because I added the NT server, I disabled that function on the router. At that time, I couldn't access the other side of the router nor could I see the default gateway when I typed the ipconfig command, but in network properties I could see the default gateway for the network adapter. I turned the DHCP function back on at the router and removed it from the NT server and now everything works fine. The clients were getting their ip addresses from the NT server because I verified this with ipconfig. Now they get them from the ISDN router. I'm going to try static addresses and turn off the DHCP service at the router and see what happens. Any idea what is going on????? I have 4 clients, an ISDN router, and a NT 4 Server running service pack 6a. TCP/IP is the only protocol installed.
