But I do need help with portforwarding with the exact same router, and setting up a static IP. my prob is with the DNS settings. Ive done everything that was suggested at portforwarding.com, all Im saying is that when I use command prompt in XP, the DNS settings only have one, which is the same as the default gateway for the router. all I wanted to know is if this is normal, do I ring up my ISP, or is there another way to find my DNS settings.

That's normal. If your internet access is fine now it will continue to be fine with a static IP and that one DNS setting. If you want to know the DNS server(s) assigned by your ISP look in your router's WAN (Internet) status section.

I think I understand now. when I assign IP address's for the home network, is that considered as a static IP address? and the only DNS that is in command prompt is the default gateway for the router, is that correct? Everthing is working correctly now, I just would like to make sure that my understanding is correct.

Even though it appears you're having the same problem, please start a new thread when you have a new issue. It's very difficult to keep two problems straight and who's working on what in a single thread.

I've created a new thread for your issue here.

Thanks for your cooperation.
