would i be correct? i rang my ISP and got what i believe to be my static ip address and its obviously different to the one above. so my question is how and where do i gain all the info needed to be able to enter the correct details,to create a static ip on my pc in order to port forward the ports? the details needed are:ip address,subnet mask, default gateway, preferred DNS server,alternate DNS server
thanks and any replys will be appreciated

Your public static IP address (the one assigned by the ISP to your connection doesn't matter for port forward). What you need is a static IP address for your PC - and configure this on your router.

Currently your IP address is 10.1.1.3 and is assigned by your router. What you have to do is check the configuration on your router and limit the DHCP to only give addresess on a range - for example maximum to 10.1.1.100.

Then you manually configure your PC to an address such as 10.1.1.101 or greater. You do this on your network adapter configuration.

Next you configure your router (usually though your web browser by going to 10.1.1.1) to forward the required ports to your PC's address.

That's it. Your ISP doesn't need to be involved.

hi,thanks for the reply

can i be cheeky and ask you for idiot proof instructions?,as im not 100% sure what you ment
if not thats cool,again thanks for the help

this is what ive done
i used your example of an ip address (10.1.1.100) and made a new static ip on my router (advanced/virtual server/new ip) and saved and rebooted router.under network adapter configuration (internet protocol(tcp/ip)prperties)i changed the option to manually add the ip numbers:ip address 10.1.1.101
                 subnet mask 255.0.0.0 (this happened automatically)
                 default gateway 10.1.1.1
                 preferred DNS server 60.234.1.1
                 alternate DNS server 60.234.2.2
(i got these numbers from my router (home/DNS config)i also changed the scroll down window to, use user discovered DNS server only, from use auto discovered DNS server only)was this right? the DNS numbers were still there just darkened as in not in use (i guess).
obviously i still have internet so i cant have stuffed up my connection,question is,did i do it? and right?

cheers
