Set a WAN Connection to a Static IP?

    I'm trying to set a WAN Connection to a Static IP as advised by a colleague, who says:

    Is this possible in HyperWRT and if so, could I please be pointed to the tab where I do this? :redface:

    Yes there should be an option in the wan settings to set to static. Though be sure you can use a static ip or you will cause yourself more problems then not down the road.

    Cheers...but.. :redface: ... where are the "wan settings" located exactly?

    Thanks mstombs,

    So I type in an IP address in the first line of the second url you gave me?

    Perhaps I should say what I'm trying to do...

    I have been running two WRT54GS's with HyperWRT Thibor 15c in WDS Mode as follows with my Wired Hauppauge MediaMVP Extender for several years.
    Server PC <=>WRT54GS (WDS+AP Mode) <=Wireless=> WRT54GS (WDS Mode) <=> MediaMVP.
    I now understand this is half duplex so you only get 1/2 the throughput. A recent demand for bandwith has me looking at other options. Someone else mentioned making the Router connected to the MVP a Client, with the caveat that "I would need to use (at least in dd-wrt) the wan side of the router and that I might have to change the wan ip to be within my subnet so you can access it"

    This sticky thread says:
    Does the above "Static IP" still apply for this? I thought static IP was only for (paid) fixed IP address from your ISP?

    Don't type values into the simulator!

    I don't know about wds etc (but isn't wireless always half duplex if send/receive for all devices on same channel?). The WAN port in the link is the WAN Ethernet port.
