help using a router

i have a broadband router. I am able to surf the internet when i enable its dhcp utility but i cant figure how to get my pc to surf with out it turned on. the routers ip addy is
192.168.1.1
sub 255.255.255.0

so i made the pc
ip 192.168.1.2
sub 255.255.255.0

but still no dice. should i have placed somthing in the gateway as well?

sorry 192.168.1.1 is the gateway

e.g

 
 IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.2
 Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
 Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1
 DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 194.168.4.100
                                            194.168.8.100
