Due to address conflicts
You may have to configure your routers IP address due to many reasons. One of the most common reason is the network conflict of an IP address. This problem happens when your system gets hooked to the assigned static address and Local Area Network. In order to resolve this issue, you will have to assign your address to another person’s device and connect it to the same network.
Things to be kept in mind
While changing the IP address of the router you will have to remember certain things. If you are using cables, or a broadband connection then you will have to assign your static IP address while changing it. Then if you are using a dial-up connection then you will have to assign a dynamic IP address. You can confirm this by going to Command Prompt and typing 'ipconfig/all' on your system. Then if the DHCP enabled option says 'No', then it indicates a static address and if the DHCP enabled option says 'Yes', then it indicates a dynamic address.
In order to configure the IP address of a 3Com router you will have to follow certain steps. First, you will have to launch your web browser, then you will have to enter your routers IP address in the address bar. Then you have to enter a user name and password. After that, locate the router settings and change your routers IP address from its current settings. Then click 'Ok' to save the changes you have made.
