Is it possible to use a manually configured IP address and still recieve internet from the ROuter ?

Using a router, whenever I choose an IP address manually, the internet becomes unavailable. Is there a specific IP address needed in order for this to work?

Thanks for any info.

Where are you choosing this IP address? In the network config of your machine?

It is certainly possible, and to me, even preferable, to use static IP addresses for the machines on the LAN connected to the router. It makes communication between machines and special configurations of the router for a specific machine easier than doing it by Mac address.

You need simply assign the IP address in the connection's properties to a static address instead of an automatically assigned one. And then configure the router for that addresses specific ports and protocols.
