The adsl modem (dsl 502T) was telecom suppiled then i brought a wireless router as an add on,  now I cant forward certain ports through my computer. I currently have a dynamic i.p. adress, i want to be able to change that to static in order to forward these ports.  Whenever I try change my i.p. adress type to static my internet stops working.

This is my current connection in more detail...

ADSL CABLE>>DSL 502T MODEM>>ETHERNET CABLE FROM MODEM>>WIRELESS MODEM>>ETHERNET CABLE FROM WIRELESS ROUTER>>CPU NETWORK SLOT.

I just want to know how to configure a static i.p. and be able to forward ports without breaking that flow of connection and not sutffing up the internet.

ALL HELP WELCOME.

If you can access the Internet now then you are almost there. You should be able to configure your wireless router to hand out DHCP addresses on a range, and limit this range to a certain number of address. Then manually configure your PC to use an IP address in the same subnet, but beyond the last reserve IP address.

If all works well then you should be able to start doing port forward.
