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..!

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.
