    Not to make life more complicated than it needs to be, but... you could put a router between your network and the modem. Your router would have an "external" address of 192.168.0.1 and would assign internal addresses in the desired range.

    Or perhaps there is a configuration option for the modem that isn't apparent from its interface. Have you looked up the manufacturer's web site or tried its support?

    Can't you change the configuration of the Teleflora application to use a different IP range? Is the 8-port device really a switch or is it a router?

    Re: LAN IP Range ?

    Thanks to both of you for the responses. I haven't had a chance to work on this in the florist shop because of Mother's Day -- much too busy a time for them to have Anyone do anything that might interfere with their Teleflora application or business. I can safely say the 8-port switch clearly states on the cover that it is a switch. Using the browser-based interface to the DSL modem, I was unable to find anyway to set a different internal IP range.

    Our list of options includes your recommendations:
    1. My XP Pro system allows for an alternate IP configuration but her OS's do not. I haven't been able to learn of an approach (such as set only the DNS addresses to the ISP's DNS's) to get around our situation. My plan is to spend a little more time poking around then go to another step.

    2. I need to get access to the equipment again to get model numbers to see if there is something I can do with the DSL modem that I could not find via the browser interface.

    3. We did not expect the application to be tied to the IP range. The owner asked me to help her do this because of the charges associated with the application's tech support. Now that we have this problem, those charges will seem more palatable. I assume there Must be a way to change the IP range looked for by the application... but who knows.

    4. If all else fails, I know I can throw a real router at it.

    I'll post our solution when we get there.

    Thanks again for your help and gray matter.

    If you want us to try to help please post all the OSes involved, the make & model of the switch, and the make & model of the DSL modem. Someone here will almost assuredly have experince with the OSes and may have experience with the hardware involved. BTW, is there an installation folder for the Teleflora app anywhere on the LAN? If so, have you tried searching the registry on that machine?

    Done! I found a manual for the DSL modem online. The 'modem' can be profiled to be a full router. After a number of power off/resets/guessing at the base password, I was able to change the router's ip address and masking to support the values of the ip range already manually set in the server and workstations. Thanks again for your insight and thought processes.

    Enjoy!
