linksys router with 2 ip addresses


well i just ordered a new ip address for my cable modem
but i have all the computers connected thru my linksys wireless access point router

i was wondering if it was possible to bind an ip address to just one of my computers and have the other 2 have the other ip

i could hook a hub up to my modem and then my router to the hub and one computer to the hub but my old hub decided to take a poop on me



just wondering if anyone knows if it is possible

The purpose of the ip address is to be found by incoming data..
So you would only need it if there are servers that need to be found.. or returning packets..

The outward control is handled by the router NAT or bridging..
You have to choose between a NAT configuration, = port forwarding,
or bridging, = frame forwarding

Bridging requires a different MAC address for each computer, (which is normal)
but it can't handle 2 MACs with only 1 ip number..

For that, you would need a NAT configuration in the router and do port forwarding for each incoming ip number..

Ok..

YES, if...
If you connected a hub to the modem, one pc could connect to the hub and have one ip number,
and the router also connects to the hub and has the 2nd number.

The 2 pcs would be behind the router as normal, with one number on the router, using NAT to find the internet.
For the internet to find them, you need to have ports forwarded to them..

OR if...
If the router can handle 2 external numbers, it can send incoming connections on one ip number to just one pc.
It would also need to be able to handle the outward connections correctly..
2 pcs use one number and 1 pc has the other..

Question is whether the router has enough programming option to do this..
