Static IP issues and setup
Posted on 2008-09-29
I live in an area where are only option for internet is a direct wireless fixed direction antenna,dish on my house that points to a repeater on a water tower. The antenna on the roof is connected via Ethernet to a POE Injector. The POE is then connected to my Netgear router. The company (SkiWi) has issued me a static IP, but to setup my router they said to have the router gather IP automatically from them (the ISP). That being said, the router status displays a IP that is totally different than my static. This is causing headaches with port forwarding and such. Is there a way to set up the router to show my 'true' static ip?
