I need to configure a windows XP PC to get a static IP address from a Linksys WRT 54G router which is connected to a Westell 6100 modem, which is connected to Verizon DSL. The router and PC were set at automatic configuration DHCP and connected to the internet. I changed the router to Static IP and got the following:
Internet IP: 74.x.x.x
Subnet Mask:
Static DNS 1:
Static DNS 2:

Then I manually entered the following into the PC:
IP address:
Subnet Mask:
Default Gateway:
Preferred DNS Server:
Secondary DNS Server:

It wasn't connecting to the internet. I changed the DNS server on the PC to, same as Default Gateway, but still didn't work.

What should I do?
