Hi,

I need to connect to extrenal server overseas and I put a request for static IP for our business. They just called us, and gave me the static IP. Any set up is required on my PC to use this IP? Does router need to change?
I went to IPaddress.com and I still see the dynamic IP address we originally had.

Thanks in advance

You need to configure your router with the new IP address.

What kind of router do you have? And yes, it will effect everyone very briefly after you change the IP.

It is a Linksys router.

In the web based configuration is where you setup the new IP. Should be under WAN or something similar.

You need to look at your manual or give me the model number. Generally you logon to the linksys by putting 192.168.1.1 into the address bar of your web browser and it should take you to the login for the router.

The default password and user name is admin admin.

You should see an option to configure the static IP address. You see where you can change it form Dynamic? Leave all else alone.

Is this Static DNS1? I don't see any other option under Basic set up, network address server setting.

You need to enter the DNS server IP address that was given to you there (this should have also been supplied by the ISP). You should also have a WAN setting where you can change the connection type form Dynamic,static, or PPoE.

this is a first time I am doing it. could youplease direct me what to do exactly:

under Internet set up:

when I select Static IP then I see the following: (replaced numbers with x's)
Internet IP address: xx.xx.xxx.xx
subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 64.xxx.xxx.xxx
Static DNS1: 0.0.0.0
Static DNS2: 0.0.0.0
Static DNS3: 0.0.0.0

under Network setup:
Router IP address: 192.168.1.1
subnet mask: 255.255.255.0 (its a drop down box, any can be selected..)

under Network address server setting(DHCP):
DHCP server: Enabled
Startinf IPAddress: 192.1681.100
max no of dhcp users: 50
WINs: 0.0.0.0

After you select static IP plug in the numbers you were given by the ISP.

So it will look like this:

select Static IP
Internet IP address:  (I put static IP)
subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 64.xxx.xxx.xxx
Static DNS1:  (i put primary DNS server?)
Static DNS2: (I put secondary DNS server?)
Static DNS3: 0.0.0.0

no changes to the rest....is above right?


I was talking to ISP and they told me this Static IP is assigned to modem and I do not need to do anything is this right?

do I need to ask ISP for subnet mask and gateway as well? or use the dafault?

Is Static DNS1 actually primary DNS ip I have been given?

The should have provided that information with the static IP address. I would call and verify it all.

okay got it, he said default gateway is the same as static IP, and if didn't work then you can change the last three digits to 1 and subnet mask: 255.255.255.0

to clarify this, what is static dns1 mean?

This information is provided my the ISP you should have a sheet that looks like this

x.x.x.x -x.x.x.x range of IP addresses
x.x.x.x subnetmask
x.x.x.x gateway
x.x.x.x x.x.x.x DNS servers.

The default gateway cannot be the same as your IP address. I would call back and ask to talk to a supervisor.
