    I use an older XP PC to store my TIVO recordings. The unit ran "headless" and I used VNC to connect.

    The PC sat on my network with a fixed IP of 192.168.1.13

    I had to replace my router and cable modem and my new network is 192.168.0.xxx

    Now I cannot connect to this older PC.

    I tried connecting a monitor and keyboard to it but the monitor connection is not working. I think it used a DVI connection which I no longer have.


    Anyone have any suggestions on how I can connect to this older PC and change the IP address?

    Thanks

    Why not change the router to 192.168.1.xxx?

    Assuming the XP PC is connected to a switch of some kind with a wired connection, take one of your other PC's, connect it to the same switch with a wired connection and then set the IP address on that PC to 192.168.1.10 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. The default gateway isn't needed and neither are DNS servers. You should be able to connect to the XP PC with VNC again to change the IP address.
