My home network is running on one DSL. I know that the DSL assigns the same external ip too all the computers, I was wondering if I could subnet my computer some how for it too gain its own external ip.

Possible solutions?

Would adding a second DSL make it at all possible?





Also : Sorry I haven't gotten back too you on that port issue, I didn't know what too say, it just seemingly started working.

You could switch over to a business class DSL and get two or more static IP addresses over the same DSL line. The real question would be why do you want two addresses? Most things acan be done with one address and the use of the proper router setup.

Well I am currently hosting a small server over here, and none of the other computers inside the LAN can access the site, or connect too the server, as everything is set too the same ip.

You need to do to things. First get a router and set it up to access the internet using the single IP you have been assigned. Secondly using either the router or your server set up DHCP for you local LAN. Make sure your server's and router's local IP addresses are in the same subnet.

You are having problems because every computer in the LAN needs a unique IP address based on the same subnet mask. One IP will more than meet your needs with the proper setup.
