Specs: Windows XP
Hi there,

I have a problem with my home networking using a 1 static ip provided by my ISP.

I have an Aztech 605ew Router/modem ADSL2/2+ Wireless G Gateway and running Windows Vista.

Im new in this networking with static ip.

my problem is i wanna connect 3-5 computers on 1 static ip.

3 on lan
2 on wireless.

what my provider gave me.
1 static ip
1 gateway
primary dns server
sec. dns server.

and my modem ip is 192.168.1.1
how do i configure my network.

im new to this pls use some other static ip then the one in the range of my modem ip(in your example)or is it completely different?

cause i cant configure and connect to the net is i dont change my modem ip or my gateway. in my modem it says this (PPP IP Address) i dont know what this is but if i change this i can connect to the web. in doing that my login to my modem changes to that.

someone please help me im staying in a small town and i dont know what to do.

Regards,
Allen.

You need to configure the router/modem to use a static connection.

To do this, open your web browser and type in the IP of the router/modem (you said this was 192.168.1.1) into the address bar. On the left hand side, there should be some options. Locate Advanced and click WAN. There may be an option for new connection. If so, click it. There should be a page to appear. Type the name of the connection. Beside type, click the combobox and select Static. Type the IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, etc. as assigned by your ISP. Click Submit.

Rayburn,

thanks for your post.
I tried that, prehaps you know a way around it as i dont.

I make a new connection. here is how the page looks like (WAN PAGE)

http://img177.imageshack.us/my.php?image=wanpage.jpg

My ISP asked me to use PPPoA)

in my WAN page there is nothing that lets me enter a static ip.
but i can do it in the LAN Configuration page here:
http://img177.imageshack.us/my.php?image=lanpage.jpg (The LAN configuration includes my ETHERNET and my WLAN (LAN GROUP 1)

if i go to the : Use the following static address.
What do i enter in the following fields?

Internet IP:
Netmask
Default Gateway:
Host name:
Domain name:

i enter in the IP address the same as my computer it doesnt work or connect. I enter it in the same range as the ISP IP address also doesnt connect.

The gateway i enter in the same as the ISP it doesnt connect, i use the default router gateway the same result.

*Note: my router DSL light and internet light is GREEN.
it only works if i enter in the PPP IP ADDRESS in the same range as my Static IP. even thought after all that i come back to the same page and try to do the static ip at "use the following static ip" i cant connect online again.

i even tried to enable the DHCP server in the same range as my ISP static IP. and put ***.***.***.2 - ***.***.***.254
also same result and i also tried off (server and relay) nothing

Is it that i have 1 static ip only from my ISP i cant connect more than 1 computer? im really confused.

Here is what my network suppose to look like:

I'm not at all familiar with that model router but the ones I've worked with (Linksys, D-Link, etc) would all allow you to statically assign TCP/IP addressing to the WAN port and use a PPoE connection. Maybe you need to replace that router with one that's more configurable.

Your wan pic is the basic config. What about the Advanced wan config? I see it listed on the menu.

It's on page 31 of the manual,

ftp://ftp.aztech.com/support/singapore/ADSL/DSL605EW%20User%20Manual%20v1.0.pdf

in the advanced/new connection manager choose type "static" and this will bring up the boxes to put in the ip address, mask etc...

Thanks for the replies and all the help.

I appreciate it so much
in this advanced page for the WAN (static)
http://i40.tinypic.com/2s0zkm8.jpg

correct me if im wrong :
IP Address:The address for the router in the range of my Static IP given by ISP ***.***.***.2 - ***.***.***.254

Subnet Mask:Given by the ISP or do i just use 255.255.255.0 ?

Default Gateway:Given by the ISP.

DNS 1:Primary DNS Server given by ISP
DNS 2: Secondary DNS Server given by ISP

Mode:Do i put bridged or routed?

This is the network configuration desired:
http://img177.imageshack.us/my.php?image=networkdiagramk.jpg

So my Lan Page is like this:
http://img177.imageshack.us/my.php?image=lanpage.jpg

So now my WAN is static in the configuration above.
My Question is for my LAN it also requires the following:

Internet IP: Do i put a different IP for the LAN or Follow WAN?
Netmask: Given by ISP or 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: Give by ISP or default
Host name: ?
Domain name: ?

Do i enable DHCP server? im trying to setup a home network with all fixed IPs. if so do i enable Assign ISPDNS,SNTP?

Thanks so much, it has been a few days almost a week i have been trying to do this. This has been a real good experience.

Regards,
Allen

I don't know how much info an ISP gives to those who use static IP addresses, but it looks like if everything is static, they would give you the default gateway, and DNS as well. Did they give you this info? If so, enter it where it says to. As for Mode, I don't know but Routed sounds more right to me.

"Do i enable DHCP server? im trying to setup a home network with all fixed IPs."

I don't have much experience with this. I always have all PCs on my network set to DHCP. DHCP is only for clients that get the IP directly from the router. I've not been able to get the clients on my network to connect to the internet with a static IP on all clients. There's probably a setting in there somewhere, but since DHCP has always been ok for me, I haven't fooled around with it. Perhaps someone else will chime in with experience with it.

I agree that maybe you should get a modem/router with more configuration options.

Why do you have a static ip, are you going to be running a web server or something?

1. Why do you have a static ip, are you going to be running a web server or something?
Ans: Yes i have a specific static ip from my ISP not one i made myself. No i'm not running a web server.

If you ask why dont i used a dynamic ip instead, is because in my country, the dynamic ip speed is shared and it causes traffic problems.

So i'm on my own static highway where only i am the lone user.

Lets not confuse lan with wan. You have a static wan ip along with all the isp info given. Put that into the wan settings.

Make you life simple. Engage the dhcp server on the lan side of the router for your pcs. Then set all the workstations to autoassigned ip and upon next boot should get their ip from the router.

Thanks guys for your reply,

I appreciate the info, but the thing is i need to use a static lan ip for the network.

Network:
3 WAN - Desktops
2 WLAN - Laptops(Wi-fi)

Due to i need them to be fixed and not switching or changing around their ips this way it will be hard for me to share my printer and other hardware with the connected network. If im on the dynamic i would have to reconfigure the TCP/IP setup everytime the computers are booted. As far as i know with the DHCP Server, the IPs are randomly distributed.

I got the wan part done already. example as below:

WAN Configuration
Static IP: 202.168.133.150
Subnet: 255.255.255.252
Gateway: 202.168.133.149
Primary DNS: 202.133.0.5
Secondary DNS: 202.133.1.5

Now how do i setup my LAN on static in sense of numbers?
Question
1. Can any of the below be in a different range from my WAN aside from the Gateway?
* If possible with my WAN setup, could you show in terms how would my LAN look like in order to connect. As i see a green light on my internet, but no connection, i guess its due to my LAN configuration.

LAN
Static IP:
Subnet:
Gateway:
Host:
Domain:

That's all i need to know.

P/s: Sorry for the trouble just need to get this done.

Regards,
Allen

"...this way it will be hard for me to share my printer and other hardware with the connected network."

I have my printer shared on my network and DHCP is still enabled.

"Can any of the below be in a different range from my WAN aside from the Gateway?"

Not sure what you mean here. You can manually change the IP of all clients on the network and assign them manually, but if your network is like mine, you'll lose internet connectivity when you do that. I'd just set the clients up on DHCP and be done with it.
