Static IP And Router Setup Questions
Posted on 2012-08-24
OK, I am with Windstream, and I just received my Static IP Through them the other day.
However, it is a little strange how they assign the Static IP Addresses.
This is how it is done, which gives 2 IP Addresses.
Router IP: 0.0.0.1
Usable IP: 0.0.0.2
I have the DNS At my hosting provider setup with an [A] Record to points to my "Usable Static IP"
OK, the Router has picked up on the "Router Assigned IP"
So, my question is this.
How do I assign the "Usable Static IP"?
I have a Linksys WRT120N (Needed a wireless, so I grabbed this one)
I have the router setup with Port Forwarding to my Server
But where do I assign the "Usable Static IP" Address?
Is this Router NOT going to work with this type of DUAL Static IP Assignment?
I know that with a single static IP address, I would simply just point the records and everything would work with the Linksys Router, however, with the dual Static IP Assignment, this does not seem to be the case.
I do have a Cisco PIX Router in storage, that I can grab out to use, if this Linksys setup is not going to work, however, I would have to do a Triple setup, as I will still need to Wireless Linksys Router inline.
Any thoughts or idea's on this totally messed up situation?
