    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.

    "the DNS settings only have one, which is the same as the default gateway for the router."

    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.
