View Full Version : [ubuntu] Setting up a static ip through router?

Can this be done? If not should I just plug up directly into my modem?

Thanks in advance

Yes it can be done. The specifics depend on the router. On my Thomson Speedtouch I have a check box "always use the same IP address" on its configuration for a particular device. On my Netgear WGR417v6 it's done through the LAN IP menu option.

Yeah through the router is always how I've done it.

Leave all computers on the network on regular ol' DHCP / automatic. And let the router assign addresses based on MAC addresses.
