Hi kianhow,

Here is a good website for you to start off with home networking

Good luck

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.
"function of the IP"

I meant ISP... need more coffee...
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 as your gateway will be probably in the 192.168.1.x range- you find this out on your router
put in your isp dns server addresses as well
