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?

    Does that plug into your hub?

    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.

If you reset the modem and ip address will not change and remains same hence it is static ip address.If you reset the modem and the ip address change ,it is dynamic ip address.
You can get the Ip address from your internet service provider.you can check the ip address using the site Ip-details.com .

How to obtain public IP from Time Warner


<p>There are two basic types of IP addresses of internet service providers (ISPs) to provide customers with Internet services: a dynamic address or DHCP and a static IP address. A static IP, as the name implies, uses the exact same IP, and you're online all the time. The DHCP IP configuration uses a "stack" of available IP addresses each time a modem is online and an IP address of the network of the ISPs is simply grabs the first available IP address from the stack. The IP configuration of DHCP, then it is very easy for a new public IP address from your provider at any time <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Unplug the cable modem from Time Warner. Total count of 30 seconds and close. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Allow the modem to reboot every five minutes. During this time, goes through the boot cycle, contact your provider and ask for a dynamic IP address. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Navigate to the computer's IP Configuration Manager. For most versions of Windows, the easiest way to do this is to open the Start menu, click All Programs, then select "Command Prompt" from the "Accessories" menu (for future versions of Windows, you may need to the right button on the Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator "to show itself sufficient permissions on IP of the computer information). <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. IP address to test your computer by typing "ipconfig" and "Enter" Command to the numbers printed next to "IP address", like "IPv4 or IPv6 address." The number displayed on the public IP address of the DHCP as the modem from Time Warner will receive net. <br />

Changing NAT settings on TG585


Judging from your user name, I take it you want to switch your NAT settings so that you can play your xbox online. In order to do that, you're first going to need to set up a static IP address and then forward your ports on your router from there. Here is a simple and easy to use guide from portforward.com, just follow the steps outlined in the pictures and you should be able to get this up and running in no time.

Can't connect my xbox 360


You gamers drive me nuts. XBOX can usually guide you through but their techs bail on you pretty fast and blame the ISP. If you are going directly from the modem to your xbox you have to reset the modem after you plug in the ethernet cable. Modems hate an unplugged or moved ethernet cable and stop talking if you mess with it. Most gamers don't set up the xbox correctly from the beginning. Comcast is the easiest ISP to set up for. They use a DHCP (dynamic) IP not a static. That is the biggest setup mistake. No DNS server, everything set to automatic. Hope this helps. Get a job and take care of that crying child we hear in the background. The game will wait.

Ip 3rd time is chainging.all time speed is going down


what ip are you referring to? most internet service providers provide dynamic ip addressing to their residential customers and dynamic ip addressing means that your ip address will be changed periodically. Static ip addresses (ip adoes not change) is usually provided for business consumers.
as for the speed, if you subscribe to 4Mbps speed package, what it actually means is that you willbe getting UP TO 4Mbps speed. that would explain why your speed goes down. you will not always have 4Mbps.

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.

Forwarding from seimens 5830 how to get access


Hi,
You havent suggested what site you are wanting to forward one of your routers ports too, most people make this request for torrent download and/or gaming experience/improvement. Either way you need to know what port the software you are wanting to open a port for is currently using so you can tell your router which port to allow unchecked access.

I use this very informative support website for port resource info, click this link and choose your router type, in your case select Speedstream-5450 which will be the same setup as the 5830

http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm

That should take you to this page

http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Siemens/Speedstream-5450/Speedstream-5450index.htm

Then select the software you are wanting to open the port for.IE: Utorrent or world of warcraft Etc... That will then open a detailed walkthrough on setting up rules for your routers port activity. You will need to follow the guide for each port you open, if the guide is not listed for the exact software you are using just read through the one supplied for Utorrent and change the port numbers to the ones you are using.
The software you are using should show you what port is in use at the time you are using it, some software may use a different port everytime you open the software or allow you to allocate a port permanently (which is not recommended safe internet practice especially if your ISP supplies your connection via a STATIC IP address, most use a DHCP allocated IP address)
Failing that you can find the port currently in use information using the command prompt- for winXP and Vista type c:/netstat-b for win2000 type c:/netstat-p Look for the software you are using it will be on the left hand side and look something like [Utorrent.exe] follow the line of info too the right and look for the 4-5 digit port number.

Wheeeew, Good Luck :0)
