Setting up a Static IP connection on a Belkin router

A Static IP address is a fixed IP address that should be set up on a computer or router in order to acquire Internet access.  Some subscribers have a Static IP account that requires them to enter their Static IP credentials provided by their Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to a computer or router.

This article helps you to set up a Static IP connection on your F5D or F6D Belkin router.

Before you begin, make sure that there is an active Internet connection when you connect the computer directly to the modem using an Ethernet cable.  Check if you can go online using the Static IP address on your computer.  If not, contact your ISP.
