I want to share the one static IP address my office has (small office). My boss has the DSL coming into an IP telephony box/router, with one Ethernet port coming out.
ipconfig shows the gateway to be 72.24x.xx.xxx, and the one PC that is hooked up is one digit higher: 72.24x.xx.xx(x+1).
So thought I could hook up a Westell router off the telephony box’s Ethernet port, set the Westell router’s public LAN to the PC’s static IP address, and then assign DHCP to the PC.
It isn't working - my questions are:
Will the router translate the IP addresses through an Ethernet port instead of the DSL uplink? (There is no Ethernet uplink port per se.)
Do I have to set a default gateway on the PCs?
The router wants IP provider info. What should I tell it?
