I called my ISP for an IP add they have provided for my account.Because I wanted to use static IP addressing to enable peer to peer networking.However they said my modem can only be configured with dynamic IP add.Is there any other way so I can use static IP address?

Why do you want to enable Peer to Peer networking? There may be a better solution

Thanks raw for the fact that it can be possible :thumbsup: . From the time I read your post, I tried to google on how and it just suggested to install windows component for p2p.So I did.Want only to know, is this what you also did?Or there can be other way around?

First of all, when u have dynamic ip address, ur ISP assigns a random ip address each time u logon to ur ISP server. this happens whenever u turn on ur router or reboot. But once the IP is assigned it will NOT change untill u reboot or exceptionally if the connection drops. So you can use any P2P program for that session, including torrents, games, etc.

Second, if you want to run something that requires a static IP address as a strict requirement. You can use http://www.no-ip.com's service. You have to sign up with them for FREE. They would assign u a url (e.g, http://raw.bounceme.org) which would always redirect to ur ip. Your dymanic IP address changes are reported and updated to their server by using a little app that runs on your computer. So no matter what ur ip address is, whenever someone accesses the assigned url, it redirects to you. You can use it for personal use only, for http server, ftp server, mail server, p2p, games etc.

I hope you find it useful :thumbsup:

DynDNS provides the same service as no-ip.
My Linux User group raves about it, i have never tried it.

I'm still not clear why you believe you need a static IP for P2P.
My best guess from your post is you want to be able to access
your files from somewhere else using your IP address.
My ISP claims dynamic IP's, but my address has only changed one
time since i've had my service. Unless your ISP actually does rotate
your IP on a regular basis I wouldn't worry about a static one. As long as
your modem stays on you already have a "static" dynamic IP.
Try this test. Visit this site once a day for a week, if it shows you the same
IP every day you will be ok.

I have dynamic IP connection. I dont know about others, but my ISP forcibly reconnects every 24 hours, thereby changin IP address. I have tried to keep the router ON, but no use :thumbsup:
