I have a dsl modem, a wrt54gx2 router, and Windows XP pc's I want to be able to use static ip addresses on my PC's I want to know how to set up the router to allow for the use of static ip's on the pc's vs just getting DHCP. the modem uses PPPoE, and I was allowing the router to provide the user name and password. But I can't confirm that the router will allow the PC's to use static ip's such as 192.168.1.10, or 192.168.1.12 the reason I want to use static ip on the back side of my router is that the router is constantly loosing the ip address it receives from the modem, and my thought is that the modem and router were butting heads. I really have two questions/problems 1. how to confirm that I am able to use assigned ip address on my pc. 2. How to stop the modem from not providing the router an IP address. In the past I had a different linksys router (BRF41 or something like it)and it was easy to determine that I was using static ip's on the back side of the router. but don't have a clue where to look to determine that I'm using static ip on the WRT54.
i see...there is a part on the router that will allow you to assign a static ip but only if the ip address and other info are given and assigned by your isp...if you're gonna assign a static ip on the router, you may not be able to get online or get internet connection
I want my router to continue to be populated with the DHCP IP address from the ISP. I want my PC's to be assigned 192.168.1.10 and 192.168.1.20 I've done that in the past when I had a cable modem, but can't seem to do that with this DSL modem/ linksys Wrt54Gx2 router setup
