First off, the router works, it connects, port forwards, everything's okay... until I try to change the settings. I work at a University in a research lab, and I take care of a few servers. One of these servers connects to our network through a BEFSR41 v2 router firmware version 1.44.2. After making a request to the network admins to open some ports to the outside world, they told me that I should have a static IP for the server, and they assigned me an ip, gave me the entries for mask, gateway, dns entries, etc. I then put all of this info into the setup page of the router, changing from "Obtain an IP address automatically" to Static IP. But when I hit the apply button, nothing happens. The page with all the info just sits there, and if I switch away from the setup page and then come back, it reads automatic ip for wan. I called Linksys tech support, and after slowly going through all of my information, the tech told me that I cannot change the WAN connection type if it is functioning correctly. Is this right? You can't change from dynamic to staic ip for WAN if dynamic works? Doesn't seem right somehow.
