|I have a home desktop pc, iphone and several laptops (friends) that connect to the internet through the (Linksys WRT120N Wireless-N Home Router).|
I have a dynamic ip from my isp and i'm using dhcp and nat and all the devices are connecting to the internet just fine.
I wanted to make my pc a server for use with several things such as remote desktop (3389), and source control (svn port 3690), so i requested a static ip from my isp. Here are the settings given:
no dhcp, no nat
router ip : 188.8.131.52
router subnet: 255.255.255.252
computer ip: 184.108.40.206
The problem is that now only the pc with the static ip can connect to the internet, and i want the other devices to connect to the net also.
i did some research, so i understand that to do that i must :
1. assign the static ip to the router instead of the pc
2. re-enable nat and dhcp
3. port forward the needed ports to the pc so i can access it remotely.
i have limited network experience (software developer not network admin :) ), so detailed configuration steps would be greate.
sorry for the long post, i tried to make the problem as clear as possible. Thanks for your help
