    Thanks man but I didnt want to run wireless and sorry for the aditude but it took 2 weeks and a tone of anger to get a answer lol but I thank you as I said. Now let me explain to you what I have. I run a gaming server a CSS server and have for 3 years. Never had this problem where my internal IP address changes on all my system's everyday. my outside IP address never changes. If you can tell me what in my setting of my Router I can change to stop this plus I have it set to get ip automatically I dont know why its changed after 3 years but it changes everyday. thaks again for your help.

    You can look into Static DHCP. I don't know what you are using for a router, but if it's a WRT54G or GS before the V5 hardware, you can upgrade the firmware to aftermarket and assign IP addresses by MAC address, then they will be fixed.

    You can also just assign fixed IP addresses in the subnet of your network but outside the DHCP assignment range for your router's DHCP server, that would ensure that the IP addresses for the clients never change.
