server will not connect using static ip, SMC8013WG-CCR. modem/router


I have comcast business internet and I have a SMC8013WG-CCR modem/router. No matter what I try the server will not connect using the static ip. If I set it to auto obtain the IP address, it uses the dchp server on the router and everything works fine. Anyone have any idea on what could be wrong?

Try this, set your ethernet card to get things using dhcp. Then write down the config and modify your ethernet card for static ip using a ip address outside dhcp ip range. I think it will work.
