I'm unclear on exactly what you are talking about.

your setup should go: Modem from the ISP plugged into the router's WAN/Internet port and then all other devices plugged into the other 4 ports on the back of the router or connected wireless. You unplug the power from it all, plug the power into the modem and let the lights settle, do the same for the router and then start your PCs. All IPs the router will take care of.

If you are making the static IP of the PC that is the issue, that should be the IP address of the router. If you don't know what you are doing, follow the directions that came with the router. Almost all of them have a fold-out that has the steps with pictures.

If you are forwarding ports you need the IP address of the PC you want to forward ports to. In a command window type ipconfig that is the address to forward the ports to.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif
