I have vista. Changed my ip from dynamic to static (i have bright house roadrunner). Played ok, but then started having internet trouble. connected to msn (homepage), but nothing else. Reset the modem, nothing. reset the router, nothing wireless router. Went back to dynamic ip, and everything is fine. According to roadrunner tech support, if i change to static, roadrunner won't work for residential. So, how do I play? I have for some reason dd-wrt on my lynksis router, should I go back to Lynksis' own firmware?

Just which IP did you change?

The PC, router, or modem?

There is no difference in static vs dynamic for basic game functions and you should not attempt to setup a real static IP (in your router/modem) unless you purchased one from your ISP.
