Great, easy to understand, article. I have followed all of the instructions but still have one problem.


I have cable access and was told that my ip
address changes every 30 minutes ( is this dynamic?). I am also using a router.


I can get to my web page ok from this computer with my mac's ip address, but cannot from another computer over the internet.


It is my understanding that my computer is communicating with the router and the router communicates with the internet.


Is the problem with the changing ip address, my router, or something else?

    Yes, a changing IP is called a dynamic IP. If you were always assigned the same IP upon connect, you'd have a static IP.

    Unfortunately, that's about all I can reply to in this message. I'm a bumpkin when it comes to networking - I'm good at the stuff that runs over it ;) ...

      Yes it's DHCP and it means that you don't retain the same IP address.But IP Leases Usually last Longer than 30 mins. :)

        The IP Address of your router will not be Dynamic it will stay the same as long as you let it.
