Infinity Hunter asked 5 months ago

Hello everyone.A few days ago,i connected my PC and my mobile to my network.On my PC the dynamic IP was 192.168.1.x but my mobile was 192.168.12.x ,and my mobile also cannot connected to the internet too. On my PC i went to 192.168.0.1 and went to DHCP client list but there weren't any device named like my mobile. On my mobile i went to that default gateway: 192.168.12.1 and there weren't my network
NOTE: now it fine but sometimes it cause that problem.Other devides when connect to my network sometimes cause that too

Thanks for your question.

My guess is that your network is the 192.168.1.x. This is the network your PC connected to. It sounds like your mobile is connected to someone else's network. You'll need to go to the wifi settings on your mobile device and delete the current connection and attempt to connect to your own. Your mobile device should also be setup to dynamic (DHCP) as your PC is setup. Once your mobile device connects to your network, it will also get an IP similar to your PC, 192.168.1.x.

but the name of the network on my mobile are same with my pc

If the network name is generic like 'linksys' then that makes sense. I suggest deleting the network from your mobile and reconnecting. An alternative is that your router has advanced DHCP settings and is assigning IPs from two different blocks. One from 192.168.1.x and one from 192.168.12.x as you mention above. Although this is not likely for a home based router, it's not impossible.

I moved your new question to this thread as they're both related. Once your IP address issue is fixed, you should be able to get to any site that your DNS can resolve. We need to figure out how to get your mobile device from 192.168.12.x to the 192.168.1.x network.

My network uses router, And my network's name isn't like "linksys". Sometimes, my network can not connect to some sites too. Like a few months ago, i could connect to Twitch, but i could not connect to Twitter. I also counld not connect to some url like x.wordpress.com( all sites like it).
Anyway, how can i fix those?

Not being able to get to certain websites is most likely a DNS issue. This is not uncommon. You can set DNS defaults in your router to use something other than what your ISP assigns. I suggest using Cloudflare DNS of 1.1.1.1. What kind of router do you have? Who set it up? Were any settings changed from factory defaults?

i have an TPLink router.My isp setup it and i think i does not change anything from factory defaults. And my dns is 112.197.1.254 and 8.8.8.8
Note: i does not change anything

The 112 IP is that of your ISP DNS. The 8.8.8.8 is Google's DNS. I would replace the ISP DNS with either 8.8.8.8 or 1.1.1.1. I have a feeling you'll see better success using either of those vs. your ISP. Since your ISP setup your router, you can call their support line and they can resolve the issue you mention earlier regarding your mobile getting a different IP address than what's assigned to your network. They can explain exactly what's going on and provide a resolution.

I set my primary dns is 8.8.8.8 and it all works!. It also faster than before too. I think  it will no more 192.168.12.x on my network. Thanks you very much
