I've been getting pretty crappy download speeds on many P2P apps so I've finally decided to switch my network to static IPs and set-up port forwarding.
The thing is, I've been on DHCP since I bought my router and I'm not 100% on the stages to do this in. There's a fairly straighforward walkthrough for the port forwarding for my router here, and a static IP setup here. The thing is, it doesn't make it very clear as to how DHCP might come into this. When I run ipconfig /all the only info I get are the IP and DNS addresses assigned by the router for DHCP, and I get the feeling that this isn't the info I'm wanting (ie the DNS server is my router's IP, is this what I need, or my ISP's DNS server?).
Can anyone help with the order I should be looking at doing this in (ie turning off DHCP, enabling static IPs, getting proper settings) ?
Any help would be much appreciated, I've been putting this off for a while now, but I don't want to blunder in and fuck up my net connection right off the bat.
-------------------- The above is an extract from my fictional novel, "The random postings of Edame".
In the beginning was the word. And man could not handle the word, and the hearing of the word, and he asked God to take away his ears so that he might live in peace without having to hear words which might upset his equinamity or corrupt the unblemished purity of his conscience.
And God, hearing this desperate plea from His creation, wrinkled His mighty brow for a moment and then leaned down toward man, beckoning that he should come close so as to hear all that was about to be revealed to him.
"Fuck you," He whispered, and frowned upon the pathetic supplicant before retreating to His heavens.
