Echolife / Hg520c

Specs: Windows XP
I have a EchoLife HG520c Router and theres only 1 PC connected to it, the real IP (external or public) is "189.143.xxx.xxx", the private IP (internal or local) is "192.168.xxx.xxx"

I want to connect without get a private IP, like a 56k connection.

Is possible assign the public IP to that PC, and how?

of course theres the DMZ, Port forward, NAT config, but i just want to know.

There is all to risk and nothing to gain but if that's what you want...

Simple: connect your computer directly to the modem and your pc will get that ip address

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

I do not believe that you can do that.
In any case you would be defeating the purpose of having a router. If that is what you want to do then by pass the router altogether (put it back in its box) and connect your PC straight to your modem.

The WAN port talks to the external world using a single IP address in your case "189.143.xxx.xxx". This may be a static or dynamic IP address dependant on your ISP and your subscription to your ISP. This address is allocated by your ISPs DHCP service.

Internally your router has a DHCP which will allocate an IP address to each PC connected to it. This can be done statically by you instructing which IP address to allocate to which PC (Mac code) or to let the DHCP in the router do it dynamically. These local IP addresses will be in the range "192.168.xxx.xxx". This is how the router is then able to manage / channel the external communication to and from the right PC.

Your router will also have an inbuilt firewall which gives you added protection.

I am also puzzled by your comment about a 56k connection. It does not make sense as you appear to be on a broadband connection?

Just to add to what mosaddique was saying............

Internally your router has a DHCP which will allocate an IP address to each PC connected to it. This can be done statically by you instructing which IP address to allocate to which PC (Mac code) or to let the DHCP in the router do it dynamically. These local IP addresses will be in the range "192.168.xxx.xxx". This is how the router is then able to manage / channel the external communication to and from the right PC.

DHCP is only responsible for assigning TCP/IP settings to clients who request it. Your router uses NAT (network address translation) to allow multiple computers on the LAN side, to access the internet through the single WAN port and it's routable IP address.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
