    After i cant tell you how long... Does this sound right?

    - I set up a static IP on my PC. something outside of the dynamic range in the router.
    - Logged into my WCG200 and in the port- forwarding i choosed the port I'm using for my P2P and entered the static IP from my PC set up.

    Am i really done? was it really that easy or am i missing something.
    Do i also need to set up a static ip on the router? I've tried this and set the PC static address the same as the router and had to re-set my router.

    It is that easy...

    If you set the PC's static address the same as the router, you would confuse the heck out of your network, as two devices would then be fighting over the same IP address. Setting a fixed IP address outside the DHCP of your range is the proper thing to do. Congrats.

    Thank You! javascript:emoticon(':cheering:')
    I cant tell you how many tutorials mention once you set your PC's static IP, now go and set up your routers static IP address.

    Static IP is one of those things that's so simple, it's easy to overcomplicate it in a tutorial. ;)
