Hi everyone! My BEFSR11 will not accept a Static IP address. Has this ever happened to anyone before? Basically I access the Web Configuration (192.168.1.1) and set the WAN Connection Type to Static IP. I fill out all my IP information: IP: 70.88.x.x Subnet: 255.255.255.0 Gateway: 70.88.x.x DNS1: 208.x.x.x DNS2: 64.x.x.x I'm sure my information is correct because I got it directly from my ISP, twice! I hit APPLY and it takes me to that screen that says: "SETTINGS SUCCESSFUL, YOU WILL BE RETURNED TO THE PREVIOUS SCREEN IN 5 SECONDS." However, when I return to the screen my settings are gone and the WAN Connection Type is still set to "Obtain IP Automatically". When I check the Status tab it still has the same old randomly assigned IP that it did before. Can anyone give me some suggestions on this? I thought the router was supposed to accept the information no matter what, even if it's wrong. Does the router have some kind of intelligent sensing to where it sees a different IP and won't let me use the one I got from my ISP? Thanks for everything! Aaron P.S. : Do I have the right firmware for my Router? I am using version 1.46.02, Aug 03 2004. I thought maybe I upgraded to the wrong version and now won't let me input a Static IP????
