why is my computer not showing my static ip?

January 17, 2011 at 12:17:38
Specs: Windows 7
I got a static ip from my isp. I set up my static ip manually through my linksy router with the help of a tech guy from linksy. I need the static ip to connect to a private network for my new job but cant connect to that network. I went to whatsmyip and found that my old dynamic ip is still showing up externally, it looks like my ip4 is using the dynamic as a preferred. My question is do i need to manually change the network connection on my LAN and wireless connection under ipv4 to change it from automatically obtain TO use the following address and put in my static? And do I have to change the DNS also? I am on a home network with one desktop on vista home premium and laptop windows 7. Sorry if the wording is confusing never had to do this before. Thanks for any help with this problem :)

Open the router interface to see if the static IP from your ISP is there.

ok so it is not set! I dont get it? Why didnt it stick? It is on automatic configuration DHCP. I mean we just set this up? What do i do now obviously i know that i will have to reset it up. Is there a reason it reverted back to that setting? And do I have to still change that on my LAN and Wireless ( that is the ipv4) or should just setting up the static once again on the router enough?

Call the ISP to correct the static IP that you said was given to you.

The internal IPs on the LAN don't matter.
