Port Forwarding Help

    Hi,

    I've got a Linksys WRT54GSV4 Router that am having port forward problems.

    Am not very good with routers, I can just do the absloute basics. I've been trying to read around about Port Forwarding. I know how to do it but its just that I have 3 pcs connected to my router and the internal IP addresses are not static.

    The possible IP's I can be given are 192.168.1.100 - 192.168.1.104.

    What I want to know is instead of having to setup static ips because that caused problems with my last D-Link router (which was a crap routter) and I haven't read up how to do it on my Linksys, How would I be able to Port Forward all of the possible Home Internal IP Addresses instead of having to keep going in to my Router Settings?

    I've tried searching google and the linksys forum but I don't know the technical teminology to be able to find it and know thats the correct thing I need to do.

    Thanks in Advance and am sorry if its a dumb query.

    Some of the third party firmware allow you to assign static IP Addresses by MAC addresses. If you upgrade the Linksys firmware to a third party firmware do it only from a wired connection and only after you have reset the firmware to factory defaults. You can set static IP Addresses for your wired or wireless NIC's. You can do this by selecting start on you taskbar, control panel, network connections and right clicking the NIC and selecting properties and changing your TCP/IP protocol to use a static IP Address, in the same subent as the DHCP server on your router is giving IP Addresses. Use the subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 and enter the Local Address of yor router as the gateway address and enter the DNS server addresses from your ISP. The DNS server address can be found on the Status Page of your Router.
