i just upgraded to the 126.96.36.199 firmware but it was also happening before. when i connect up to my dsl (ZEN) the router connects on the correct ip address and with a subnet of 255.255.255.255. now i have 8 static ips so shouldnt it connect on as a sub net of 255.255.255.248???? and when i try to set up public ips on my computer it wont work. any one got some simple instructions for setting it up. surely its just a case of assing one of the free ips (not broadcast or network name) to the pc. turning on routing and pointing the pc to the routers ip as a gate way? come on waht am i missing? oh and turning on remote admin to the ip range of the pc.
