1 Belkin router 2 comps, same ips :(

Postby JackyD on Sat Mar 22, 2008 11:09 pm

hey guys, recently got a new internet provider and had to buy a router, bought a belkin router, not a expensive one, but ok one.But,, when my mate comes over with his pc and we both try and play source we both crash out coz we have the same ips...

i used to use a bt router b4 and there was no problem with having more than 2 pcs playing source at the same time.

Any ideas?

hmmm, well hopefully someone can enlighten us on how to fix this problem. coz if it cant be fixed thats wank :( anyway it comes up with something like a packet error when both trying to play source on the same server if the two ips are the same and the ports are different i.e 27005 and 27006, but we can play on seperate servers fine

try this

on your computer
Play Games > Right Click Counterstrike Source > Properties > Launch options

Add the line:

-port 27015

and on your mates computer use 27016

How do each of the computers connect to the router (wire or wireless, usb or ether)?

PC 1 ---> ether cable --->
.........................................Router -----> Internet / modem
PC 2 ---> ether cable --->

On the router settings web page are both computers listed with different IPs?

Or are both PCs bridged together, then usb to router?

PC 2 ---> PC 1 ---> Router ---> Internet / modem

This is the way its set up ;)

PC 1 ---> ether cable --->
..............................Belkin Router -----> cable modem
PC 2 ---> ether cable --->


On the router settings web page are both computers listed with different IPs? Yes

And it seems its not just if we are on the same server it does it if we both play css full stop.

If you can try a different router? - may be there is a problem with port switching on the router, belkin routers do pick up some strange problems, I ve been through 3 of them in 2 years - I`m now with a dlink 635.
