Ok I知 looking for some advise, This is what I am trying to do, I知 trying to setup 4 computers through 1 cable modem but each computer needs its own IP address. Now I've talk too my Internet provider (Time Warner Cable) about getting 4 IP addresses for the modem and they said this is possible the modem will support 5 IP addresses. Now I understand that the cable modem will support 5 IP addresses and that the cable modem will be the same (Gateway) for the 4 computers. What the ultimate goal is to be able to get 4 computers on 1 table so my roommates and I can play on a server such as (party poker) or (Ultimetbet) together, I've tried to setup a small office network in-house but the problem is the game server detects 1 IP address coming from the 4 computers only allowing 1 computer per table. I'm also using a 4 port Linksys router model #(BEFSR41)
Now I知 not sure if this is possible or If I will have too get 4 separate cable modems for this to be possible. Any advice will be much appreciated.

Hello Nukeman1916 and welcome to G2G, :tazz:

You are able to accomplish exactly what you are wanting to do by simply using a STATIC IP range instead of an AUTOMATIC. with a STATIC Ip setup you predetermine (or Make-up) what you want each PC's IP address to be. You can accomplish this with the current modem and router you have.

As for four seperate modems, with most cable operators you are only allowed 1 modem per account (paying customer), so you shoiuldn't be able to do that. You deffinatly dont want to lease 4 seperate IP's from your ISP either as they are not free and we dont want to pay extra, for something we can setup for free.

Let me know if your still watching this post and you need directions on how to setup a STATIC ip.
