Hi there Null-Byte,
Two new computer entered the household and threw my delicate DHCP balance out of whack. I've tried converting to a static IP through these means:
All to no avail. After double checking everything before and after I make these changes everything seems to look legit but I can't connect to the internet.
All these public vs private IP's have confused me a little so to neatly explain it. I had the IP x.xx.xxx.18 but it got changed to x.xx.xxx.230. I have reverse handlers set-up to connect back to my previous IP which I am trying to get back.
Getting a static IP through my ISP has failed. It's "Not a necessary function for our service to work and neither is the password to the router.", so I can't get anything from them.
If anyone has any helpful hints, tips or tutorials or a simple "You're shit out of luck." I'll greatly appreciate it.
