I have a linksys router and my internet connection provides a static IP. I know the static IP connection works fine, because if I configure my computer with the information, I can hit the internet just fine.
The problem happens when I configure my router with the static IP information. My computer can pick up an address through DHCP from the router, can ping/connect to the router, but the router won't route any packets to the internet! It's like it's dropping them?
If I configure the router to use DHCP, it can get a public IP from my ISP fine, and my computer is able to hit the internet.
I've tried about everything, but I can't seem to fix this problem. I've reset my router to default settings hoping it would fix it, but it hasn't. I've even started up a bootable OS (Knoppix) thinking it was my installation of Windows, but it still didn't work there either.
Can someone help me configure my static ip?
