DHCP question
« on: September 10, 2007, 06:00:24 pm »
Ok, so I managed to get MCE up and running last night.  I haven’t had much time to play with it yet but I am absolutely excited about it.  Any way during the setup it was coming up that MCE had detected a possible file server and wanted to know what to do about it.  The Ip that it provided though was my internal network at home is using Now initially this freaked me out thinking that someone had hacked my wireless.

Then I noticed that the flickr images weren’t being displayed.  This made me wonder if the system was broadcasting DHCP and it was freaking out my router. 

So basically is MCE still broadcasting DHCP, and is it still scanning the systems on the network to find media?

It looks like you need to change the IP address values that the DHCP server assigns it's clients. 192.168.80.* is the default for the LinuxMCE install. You can adjust this and other network stuff in the admin site. Just navigate the menu to Advanced->Network->Network settings.
