    Help what? You are connected to a router and your computer's IP address is 192.168.0.100. Your (the router's WAN) public IP address is 72.140.0.199.

    Are you having a problem?

    Open internet explorer and type in http://192.168.0.100 failing that http://192.168.0.1 that should bring up the settings page. If not check with the Manufacturers site and read the manual.

    My first guess would be 192.168.0.1 as the router's address. If you prefer to not guess open a Command prompt and type

    ipconfig

    The Gateway address is the router's LAN address.

    Hey, I have the exact router!! I have good news…if you didn't change any settings before, the username is admin, and the password is left blank. :)

    The default login info is as Jason08 stated. If you don't know your username/password you need to reset the router to factory default settings. If you don't have the user manual on CD download it from D-Link's web site, support section.

    Since you can't get into the router to reset it, you'll have to push a paper clip into the reset button on the router.

    The difference between dynamic and static, is dynamic can change automatically, whereas with static it won't change unless you change the numbers entered in for the IP settings.
