Satellite DW6000 with Wireless Router G.

Ok, out in the field we have a Satellite DW6000 running through a Wireless Router G. (linksys) and also a network printer hooked up. Our tech in the field said that when he goes to turn the computer on..that both are handing out dhcp. If the satellite hands out dhcp first then the printer will not work. If the wireless router sends out dhcp first then everything will work. We have the wireless router and network printer on the same router ip range. This is the first time I ever heard of something like this. Is he correct about the satellite sending out dhcp also? What could be the problem here, as to why the printer will not work sometimes...(as far as connectivity). He did say that if you turn off the satellite and then boot up computer all the way and then turn the satellite on....then there is no problems...it will work everytime. Thanks for you help!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The only manner in which the Satellite could be issuing DHCP leases is if the system has a server operating system running on, such as Linux, 2000 Server, or another third party DHCP server.

What type of router is issuing the DHCP leases?

    This is just the regular Linksys Wireless G Broadbrand Router. Same kind you see in Bestbuy. I think the tech in the field is a little off. We are only running Windows 2000 in the field. We have a PC Connected to Wireless Router. Then Satellite connected to Internet port on Router. Then on one of the empty ports we have the Network Printer connected. We have two other satellite DW6000 out in the field and we don't have this problem. I believe our tech is pulling a fast one on us. Making it seem like there is dhcp problems. I don't think so.

    Here is a quote directly from directway: "When ordered with either single or multiple Static-public IP addresses, no NAT or DHCP is performed, requiring an additional router solution. Net2dish recommends that you order our 4-Port Mini-router (Linksys router) if you select a Static-public IP address and wish to share the connection with a network or multiple PCs." This site has some product info http://www.net2dish.com/direcway/dw6000-details.html

    It is possible that you have a dhcp conflict. If the Satellite is plug in to one of the lan ports and not the wlan port, it could be issuing IP addresses instead of the router to the network since it appears to function as a router. From there website, they state "The DW 6000 terminal passes IP data packets to and from any IP device on the LAN and has the functionality of a typical IP router." The wireless router should be protecting you from this problem if it is connected correctly. Dan

    I had an issue with the IP address and wireless addressing. I made a call to the Dish HDesk and they walked me through the setup of the router. I do not have the setup with me, but my wireless clients now can obtain an IP from the Linksys. Tom

    I found out what the problem was. The tech in the field never upgraded the firmware. The original Linksys out of the box has bugs in it. So with the upgrade, it fixed everything. Thanks All!
