    Hi All,

    I've seen a post about static routing and was just wondering if it would improve things for me.
    Ive got 1 static IP and can get more. I run more than one computer but no servers or such, or at least when I run an FTP its only ever on one machine.
    But the reasons I ask is at times I have trouble with the WAG as most do and also I use some software that at times will connect back on random ports meaning the software firewall I used to use (but no longer do) used to do application controlled rules so it worked but the router doesnt seem to stand a chance. Also I'm sure putting the machine in question into the DMZ would also work so above that as well would static routing give me anything.


  2. Same ...

    Ive got the same problem ... ive got a linksys wag54g (CRAP) and i have recently migrated to an isp which allocates me 8 Ips .... and what i want to do is assign each of my 3 computers connected to the router (all 3 hardwired) a different external IP address (the internet ip addy). I think its something to do with RIP .... if anyone could tell me how to set this up it would me ore than helpful....

    Yes, this is exactly what I wanted to do, phoned Linksys Tech Support, they said it couldnt be done, but it does work, the fools, here's how...

    Log into the web control panel, go to security, turn off firewall and Block anonymous WAN requests.

    Go into Administration, turn on Remote admin.

    Got to the first setup screen, turn off the dhcp client, also change the ip address off the router to the second allocated IP address your ISP gave you aswell as the subnet mask, mine was

    Go into advanced routing and turn off NAT.

    Then assign your IP address manually on your computer to the third IP address your ISP has assigned you, use the subnet mask you used above, and the default gateway is the IP address the router gets when logging into adsl, the first IP address your ISP gave you.

    Do that and everything should work. Although I should warn you, I havnt been able to log into the admin screen for the router with this setup, although if needs demand, you can always reset the router, by holding in the reset button for 10 secs.

    Hope it helps.
