If you are asking if you can set a static address on your broadband, this is a function of the IP and not something that you do.

Call your ISP and ask if you can have a static address.

you will have to configureb static nat on the router first
you have to go to network connections on your pc-lan-properties-tcp-ip-select use ip address
give it something like 192.168.1.1 as your gateway will be probably in the 192.168.1.x range- you find this out on your router
subnet 255.255.255.0
put in your isp dns server addresses as well

First tell us that you are using single machine on router ..? and
properly wired the cables like from ISP Modem........>ROuter........>to your winxp machine or to switch then you configured the router ...?means you can browse your router interface in browser ( IE7.0) using http://192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 which is default of router IP ...ok if yes then you configured the router like IP address / Subnet Mask/Gatway & DNS/ DHCP .....from ISP...right..? then on your winxp system ( Network card is installed/configured )right click to my network places>properties>then right click to Local Area Connection >properties and selecet the TCP/IP > properties and give there static IP range as of you gave in router like ..if your router IP =192.168.1.1 so give in winxp system=192.168.1.5 & same subnet mask as ISP provide and gateway =192.168.1.1 ..router IP ...and DNS addresses are same as ISP DNS.....
