What you're saying makes sense Bill, I have only I computer so I thought I would make the router's lease time very long to mimic the static internal IP if I'm understanding you. Reading the tutorial now, thanks for that Non, and to all you guys for your help in gaining a little light on the subject. -- S
Yes that is correct, just type in the DNS server addresses that you want to use in you routers control panel settings, there will be place to type them in manually. You don't have to do this but if you want to use your own DNS servers you can just type them in. This isn't the same as using static IP's where you would type in the IP's, gateway,subnet and DNS of each machine.
For DHCP IP assignments leave the computer's settings on auto.
