Dynamic IP to Static IP

Hey! I followed to guide on portforward.com to onfigure my dynamic IP to a Static. When I type into the Command Pormpt " ipconfig/all " when it displayed under the correct netowrk, my IP adress it was 192.168.*.** So I chnaged that to my Static IP but made the number 1 different so say it was 6, I made it 7! Then When i needed to connect my website, in the configuring I set my IP to a External IP which i gave me on whatismyip.com.. Did I do this right? or was a suppossed to use the IP that I set which was 192.168.*.**? NOTE; My website did not work with the External IP yet it did witht he Static one I set but not for others..!

    I don't have a router. I just have a hub that I use to connect all my computers to the same network.

Your dynamic IP is the one that you modem is connected to. The 192.168.*.* is just you local area network addresses.

What does you router have for IP address information?

    You might by able to find out what the dynamic IP is by going to My Network Places, view network connections, move the mouse over to your network connection, press the right mouse button, press status.



    What does you default gateway setting say?



    The best way to find out your IP address for you modem though is to call your provider.



    As a network technician I would recommend hooking that system up to a router when you can. You will have better security on you network and with a built in firewall that most routers have you can feel at ease about getting hacked.



    Not to mention the fact that your network will go a lot faster since a hub has to repeat every data signal into every line of the hub to find where the data is supposed to go to and can cause data collisions to occur making your network run very slow.



    Good luck on that.

My asus wl-500gP v2 can't connect to the wan properly... I get the message "you have set the wrong dynamic or stic IP address for you WL-500gP V2." I'm confused because I have it set to dynamic which...


Your ISP address is dynamic, which means every time you log on to your ISP, your WAN IP address changes, this helps to stop hacking. Your ISP even though it is cable uses PPPoE/PPPoA, so you should set your router to this, not dymamic, setting your router to dynamic will make your router look for a different IP address every time your computer tries to log to it, your computer should have e.g 192.168.1.2, which is static, you can check this by going to command prompt and typing ipconfig, see what it brings up. hope this helps and post back if you need further help.

Need to renew ip address for my emachine T3516


just right click on your local connection on the desktop by the clock and click on "repair". this should clear the cache and renew the IP addy and DNS for yur connection. OR

Follow these steps to quickly release and/or renew the Internet Protocol (IP) address of a computer running Windows XP, Windows 2000, or Windows NT. Here's How:
  1. Click the Start menu button on the Windows taskbar.
  2. Click Run... on this menu.
  3. If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'cmd' (without the quotes) in the text box that appears. A command prompt window appears on the screen.
  4. Type 'ipconfig' (without the quotes) to view the status of the computer's IP address(es).
  5. If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'ipconfig /release' to let go of the address.
  6. Type 'ipconfig /renew' to obtain a new IP address (whether or not the computer is holding a current address).
Tips:
  1. If it is not necessary to view the current IP addresses on a computer, simply type 'ipconfig /release' or 'ipconfig /renew' (without the quotes) in the text box that appears in Step 3.

  2. To bring a computer back onto the network after moving it to a different location, or experiencing an unexpected outage, first release, then renew the IP address. Computers on DHCP networks often (but not always) re-establish network connectivity automatically

Dynamic IP address


Dynamic ipaddress - is temporary, the ip changes when you disconnect for example.

Normal, or static ip - It's the same address from day to day.
