Hi,
I am considering setting up a Static IP Address on my router; however, there are two other people that use the same router (wireless). What I want to know, is if I set up a static IP using my computer, will others be able to connect to it without their computer settings being messed with? If not, is there a way to only set up a static IP for one computer? Any information is appreciated.

Thanks

Hi,

I have a LAN set up with 2desktops(wired) and a laptop(wireless) my xbox 360 (wired)

Ive just set one of my desktop PC to a static IP address, thinking i was going to have to adjust everything but when i tested the laptop and xbox 360 these worked fine with no changes needed. So you should be fine aswell.

Hope this helps

By default most routers assign IP's via DHCP.
The starting pool is usually like - Start IP 192.168.2.2, End IP 192.168.2.10.
I set my static IP's outside the DHCP range to avoid any conflicts.
Server - 192.168.2.15
Wireless Cam - 192.168.2.16
Remember to set the subnet mask and gateway.

Thanks! I actually found that my router has the ability to "reserve" IP's, so I do not have to set a static (on my computer) anyways.
