I have opted for 8 static IP's on my net ADSL, and im slightly curious as to how to set it up. Havent had to do it before so interedted in saving some time in configuration/testing. I have 5 PC's but only really need two to have their own ip's to the outside world. I will be using a netgear DG834N connecting to a netgear Gbit Switch. I assume that either I need to turn off NAT and then give each PC its own ip address, or could I set it up so that I have my rig and my housemates rig in a DMZ with their own ips, and then have NAT turned on, on the router, and have the other PC's behind this? We have software firewalls running on each of the PC's that need their own IP's. I do have a decent Netgear 26port (2gbit) managed switch as well if i end up having to use that for something. Basically, whats the esiest way to set it up so two pcs have static IP's, and i dont care about the rest as long as they have net connection, and my main rig is accessible to them over the LAN, and is it possible to do this while having the firewall on my router enabled. If its really difficult to do without the correct hardware then I can easily change it to 1static IP and go back to a normal home network.
