I made my LAN static (again) and had a problem with the DNS. Someone set it up for me a year or so ago static. I did not pay attention and thought my DNS IP was the same as my GATEWAY IP. As you can imagin this caused alittle more than a problem. While looking at the settings of my router I notice three DNS listed. Well that solved that problen. I entered the three into my DNS field in my NIC and I was off and running.
I found the DNS in my router setting. What if I did not use a router and still wanted to set my computer up with a static IP address? Is there a list of DNS IP addresses? I read that there are 13 Dynamic Name Servers on the net. Is this true? Can I enter all of them in the DNS field? Should I ? Where is the list?

If you did not use a router, then you would need to have a 'static' account from your IP. There are usually quite a bit more expensive. You would still use the DNS servers provided by your ISP.

Yeah I know. Cox charges $30 more a month for a static IP and to unblock ports 80 and 25.

DHCP $49/mo 4000kbs/512kbs, ports 80 and 25 blocked

Static $79/mo 4000kbs/512kbs, no ports blocked, 1 static IP address, $5 each additional static IP.
