There is 2 method for it.
first connect your server directly to router lan port and configure your router as bridge mode.
Thenn set static ip address in your server lan property.
Seconds configure your router as static ip set in wan settings that static ip and set in NAT settings and open all port and forward that traffic to your server lan ip address.So you can access server from internet .
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: D-Link DIR 655 - DHCP server but no internet

This usually happens when the router has timed out trying to grab an IP address from your modem.

I suggest unplugging your router and modem, waiting 1 minute, plugging in your modem, wait 1 minute, plug in your router, wait 1 minute, then try to connect again.

If this solution has helped you, please take the time to rate me.

Richard have you tried setting up static ip addresses on the MACs
If you have other p.c's on network with auto ip assignment then alter the DHCP server lease to 192.168.1.10 to 192.168.1.240
then make ip address static 192.168.1.241 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 default gateway 192.168.1.1 and on the other mac
make ip address static 192.168.1.242 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 default gateway 192.168.1.1

DNS-servers translate names, such as 'www.fixya.com' to IP-addresses, because routing of IP-packets on the Internet is done using the IP-addresses, not by using the names of each computer.

If you have a router between your computers and your cable-modem (or DSL-modem), then the router can automatically supply the "Primary DNS Server" and "Secondary DNS Server" and "IP Address" to your server computer, if you configure the network-adapter on the server to "automatically obtain an IP Address".

As long as you leave your server running, the "dynamic" IP-address that it obtains will, in effect, become a "static" (namely "non-changing") IP-address.

Hi,
You may want to enable the DHCP reservation feature of the router.
What is DHCP Reservation and how do I configure it?

What is DHCP Reservation?
A DHCP reservation is a permanent IP address assignment. It is a specific IP address within a DHCP scope that is permanently reserved for leased use to a specific DHCP client.
You can configure a DHCP reservation in your DHCP server when you need to reserve a permanent IP address assignment. Use reservations for the DHCP enabled devices like print and file servers or other application servers which always have the fixed IP address on network.


Step 1: Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here
Step 2: When the router's web-based setup page appears, click Setup.
Step 3: Click on Basic Setup.
Step 4: Make sure that DHCP Server is Enabled. Then, click the DHCP Reservation button if you want to assign a fixed local IP address to a MAC address.

Just a bit of explanation. E0 interface is for inside network (LAN interface). E1 is for outside (ISP or WAN physical interface). Dialer1 is for PPPoE (the "actual"/logical WAN interface). The 1.0.0.13 is ISP provided static IP address for the use of the server. This configuration example is for running FTP server, which uses the standard TCP port 20 and 21.

The LAN uses 10.10.10.0 network with 255.255.255.0 subnet for both servers and workstations. All servers within the LAN use static IP address. The router is configured as DHCP server to give out IP info (IP addresses, subnet mask, DNS) to workstations that are configured as DHCP client.

Basically I suggest that you deploy NAT (Network Address Translation) and PAT (Port Address Translation) to setup your own servers behind Cisco router. The NAT is used to translate the ISP's given static IP address to your local IP address. The PAT is used to translate TCP ports (the port 20 and 21) between the two IP addresses.

When using NAT/PAT, keep in mind that the Internet-accessible servers are seen from the Internet as their NAT/PAT-ed IP address (the Public IP address) and not the local IP address (not the Private IP address). This understanding is very important when you or someone need to test connectivity to the server and/or when you need to create filter (access list or ACL for short) to allow only certain incoming traffic from the Internet and block others.

Side Note:
For more info on NAT/PAT concept, check out the following FAQ
»Cisco Forum FAQ »NAT and PAT; Introduction and Implementations

Instruments used in this illustration are pretty much standard for running your own servers. Please note that IP addresses, username, and password are changed. However, you could always modify the configuration to suit your situation.

This sample configuration assumes that you have a block of IP from ISP. There is a dedicated Public IP address for the router WAN interface (the Dialer1 interface) and another dedicated Public IP address for the server PAT IP address. If you only have a single Public IP address for both router WAN interface and server PAT IP address, there are several ways to configure the router.

One way is to use the same command as shown in sample configuration.

view plaincopy to clipboardprint?
  1. ip nat source static tcp 10.10.10.2 21 1.1.1.14 21 extendable
ip nat source static tcp 10.10.10.2 21 1.1.1.14 21 extendable
This one configuration way is suitable when you have static IP address from your ISP and you know exactly what the IP address is. In this case you have the 1.1.1.14 single static IP address for both the WAN interface and Public server IP address.

When you are unsure which IP address you receive from the ISP, or when your Public IP address keep changing; then another way to configure the static PAT is following

view plaincopy to clipboardprint?
  1. ip nat source static tcp 10.10.10.2 21 interface Dialer1 21 extendable
ip nat source static tcp 10.10.10.2 21 interface Dialer1 21 extendable
With situation of dynamic IP address, at some point you still need to know the exact Public IP address you receive from your ISP for server connection testing and production time. To find out, you can issue show ip interface brief command on the router. You will then see the associated WAN interface Public IP address.

Unable to access Internet, WAN IP Address present


First you will need to open up your internet browser (Internet Explorer/Netscape) and go to http://192.168.1.1. You will be prompted for a username and password. By default there is no username and the password is admin. Once you arrive at the routers setup page click on the Advanced tab. Once the page finishes loading, you'll find you will be on the "Filters" tab. Look down and make sure that there are no numbers other than 0 in the boxes on that page. If there are, then you will need to replace them with 0's and click Apply, then Continue. Once you've done that, you're going to want to look for Dynamic Routing at the top, and then click on it. Once that page finishes loading, make sure that the "Working Mode" is set to Gateway, not ?Router?, and that tx and rx are set to Disable not RIP-1 or RIP-2. If a static IP address has been set on the computer, verify the gateways matches the Router's LAN IP Address. If there aren't any installed gateways, add the Router's LAN IP Address. When setting static IP Addresses, you must also input the DNS servers. For more information on assigning static IP addresses, please see the related article on assigning static IP addresses. If you?re still having difficulties, please contact Linksys Product Support.

Multiple WAN IP Addresses with a Linksys Router


Yes, however we recommend using the following procedure is the only way you can do so without a block of IP addresses. The example below is for instances where you have multiple public IP addresses that are not in block form. For our example the ISP has given us 3 Public IP addresses. One goes to the FTP server, Web Server, and the Router. You can setup the router for whomever your ISP is. If you have a dynamic IP address and you're unsure on the setup, please see the article on setting up the router with a static IP address. If you have a static IP address please our article on setting up static IP addresses with the router, and it will describe how to setup the router with a static IP address. Once the router is setup, it will provide the 3 PC's (In our example) with internet access. The remaining two public IP addresses should be assigned to the WEB Server and the FTP server. Note - The Web and FTP servers will not be on the Local Area Network of PC-1, PC-2, and PC.
