Hey everyone,

I am trying to establish a static ip address and so far I have come unstuck because the router I am on claims that I need to have an alternate DNS Server. But having gone through all the motions with command,ipconfig /all etc. I have found that I don't have one. It just states one. Does anyone know how I can get a static ip address without it or if I can find it out for myself.

WINDOWS XP -Operating System
WIRELESS USB ADAPTOR - Internet Connection

If you want a screenshot or anything else, I will be happy to supply them.

Thanks for your time.

Why do you need a static IP address? Most routers by default give IPs out to any computer that asks for them, taking care of the IP and DNS addresses.

Because I need to keep the same ip address for a game website. As it blocks my account well it doesn't let me sign in with a different one and it keep changing. So its just pot luck that I can get logged in on it.

I have one DNS server number but on network connections it tells me I need two.

That is my connection, now. If this helps at all.

Unfortunately we cannot help you circumvent bans from sites.
However I will tell you that your 192.x.x.x addresses are internal addresses - you can set them to whatever you like and you will still be banned from the site in question.

Hello p4pking_2007: :)

From what I could understand, you have to request your ISP to assign you Static IP as any IP assigned by router is transparent to outside world. Hope this would help
