Default Wi-Fi Connection Questions

Hi. I am trying to get the Internet Radio to work, but having some problems. It says it connects to my AP, but I cannot get any channels. I was able to get the channels ONCE (1st time it connected), but since that time, it hasn't worked. For some strange reason, the Stiletto has the wrong IP address for the AP. The AP IP is "192.168.nnn.155", but the Stiletto has "192.168.nnn.156" with the correct SSID and MAC. Does anyone know how I can delete/change this? I've tried "Reset/Erase", but that doesn't clear it. I assume the Stilleto is DHCP enabled, but I can't get an IP address. Can I display the Stiletto's IP address? Is there a way to "release" the IP? I am very exprienced in setting up WLANs, but the Stiletto gives me very little to work with. Any help is appreciated.

TIA....JL

I'm thinking the 156 address is the address of your stiletto that it received from your router's dynamic IP address range. Typically it will be the next address in the allowable range. If it has the correct SSID then the issue probably is some security or setting. Normally I believe the Stileto address shown in the settings is the stiletto's IP address not the address of the access point.

What Kind of Access Point do you have. You might post some of the settings so others will have somthing to go on to help you

Thanks for your input, but the DHCP IP range for my network is 223-232. There is no way "156" could have been assigned. Looking at the info on the Stiletto's Options/Settings/Wifi Settings/Wifi Status screen, it displays:

Wi-Fi: On
Network: MYWLAN
IP Address: 192.168.nnn.156 (the AP has 155)
MAC Addr: nn:nn:nn:nn:nn:nn (This is the MAC of my AP)

Why would the Stiletto display mixed info? Is there a way to release these settings and start over? I am using a SMC WAP connected to a Hawking router.

Regards....JL

That IP sounds like it should work.. you really shouldn't have to worry about IP's anyway, just set the router to DHCP... Then all you have to do is make sure the router is visible and sending on 802.11 B.
I have three laptops, the stiletto, three desktops and a networked printer set up this way and it works.. I never had to deal with individual IP addresses, the router did it for me.

Possibly an incorrect or duplicate IP address could be the issue.

The IP address of the Stiletto can be found in the Settings->Device->Service Info screen. The IP Address should be a valid DHCP address that your router gave it.

You should be able to PING the stiltto. It does respond.

To disconnect to a previous connected wireless link, go to settings->WiFi->Network List Select the connection then press options and and select Remove this network.

You might have to remove the network connection to get it to re-connect correctly.

I don't know how the Stiletto got the IP 156, but it can be pinged. It is connecting to my home WLAN and the device is active on the network, but it appears it can't access the Internet. I have five (5) other wireless devices on the WLAN and all of them can access the Internet with no problem. As I stated earlier, it successfully accessed an Internet channel ONCE (Very 1st try), but it no longer works. Any ideas? The WiFi connection is not a make or break feature, but I would like it to work. The "Channel Unavailable/Service Not Reachable" message annoys me.

TIA....JL

SRFast,

If you are still having problems, try powering down your AP, switch (if you have one), cable/dsl Router and then power them up in this order:

1. power up your cable or DSL modem (wait until all the sync lights are stable)

2. Access Point or Router (if you have a switch between your cable or DSL modem and the Access Point or Router, power that up first - then the AP/Router). Again, wait until the device initializes fully.

3. Turn on your PCs or laptops and make sure they work

4. Turn on the Stiletto

I work in the I.T. field and this solves most of the weird wireless access problems with laptops and PDAs.

Good luck!

Mark.

It almost sounds like it has the IP but not the correct default gateway to get access to your DNS server. I agree to power down the Access point. I would go ahead and power down the router too. I've seen some routers with old bios's that had to power down all the time just to allocate a good DHCP address. Have you checked to see if your firmware for your Router and Access points are the latest. You might check this as well.

Router overlap: Two routers with the same SSID overlap, thus the stronger router is communicating with the selected WLAN device.

I've restarted all the devices with no change. I am going to try the Stiletto on another WLAN. I've asked my nephew to add the MAC address to his router and will go try it later today. I wish there was a way to release the IP and all the other WLAN settings from the Stiletto so I could start from scratch. Deleting the network on the Stiletto doesn't release the IP. Has anyone been successful in getting a new/different IP on there device? I tried reset/erase yesterday and that didn't do anything.

Update: I can connect to other WLANs and Internet Radio works. I need to delete all the settings related to my home WLAN from the Stiletto. Does anyone have any idea how I can accomplish this?

TIA...JL
