wmosconie Posted April 26, 2008 Report Share Posted April 26, 2008 I have been working on this problem for DAYS!!!I have a Linksys WRT54GS but I don't think that's the problem.About two months ago I was downloading just fine... but then... I signed up for a static IP from my ISP. The reason I did this was so I could continue to log into a secure server outside my network. My network consists of a Zhone DSL modem, Linksys router and four PC's including one Toshiba laptop which I am using now.I followed the instructions from PortForward.com and now have a static IP for my laptop. I double and triple checked the proceedure and everything is to the T. It SHOULD be working.Somehow I think the static IP for the modem from my ISP is interfering with my ability to download. The reason I think this is I haven't been able to achive a forwarded port since I got the IP from them. When I talked to my ISP on the phone to set up the router... they made me use PPPoE to allow for the newly assigned static IP for the modem.Can someone tell me if this assigned static IP from my ISP is the problem? If so, is there a fix? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
