frutchie asked 2 years ago

I have requested a STATIC IP Address from my Internet Provider and gave me one. They said that my STATIC IP Address is already activated but i should be the one to set-up or make the configuration in order to use it. My Problem is i don't know how or where i will set up my STATIC IP.
please help!

Hi frutchie,

Often times, your MAC for your router is tied to your account with your ISP. So they've probably done the assigning of the static IP for you.

If you go to https://www.whatismyip.com/ do you notice if the IP is new or not. The only thing you can do is monitor.

Now, if they've told you that you have to set it up manually, then you'll need to enter the information given to you in your router. If you don't have a router, then most likely as mentioned before your ISP has already assigned you the static IP from their end.
