Please see the related article on assigning a static IP address behind the router. If you still can not access websites, please try changing the static IP address you're using. For example if you're using the address 192.168.1.2, try 192.168.1.200. If that does not work please try the same static IP address on a different computer to see if it can use the information. If it can please try reinstalling your network card. If that doesn't work please contact Linksys Technical Support.

Static IP on machine, no outside access

Double check that the Default Gateway in TCP/IP properties is the routers LAN IP address (By default this is 192.168.1.1) Without a gateway installed, there will be no Internet access. After verifying this go to Start>Run and when the "Run" window appears type command into the "Open" Field, then click OK Once the Command prompt appears type in: ping 207.69.188.185. If you don't get a reply, the gateway is not installed. If there is a gateway already installed, check for any third party firewalls that may be installed on your computer. These can sometimes block Internet access. For more information please see the related article on assigning a static IP address behind the router. If still having problems, contact Linksys Technical Support.
