How do i set up a static ip address

You setup a fixed ip on the portal and then everytime you login you will get that ip. Your router is still set to get a ip from dhcp but you will have the same one everytime.

I assume you do mean the internet ip not one for your own network

What product type are you on? Only certain products have a static IP option either by default or requestable.

@neildalzell

Looking from your join date, I assume you're on a BBYW product, and not one of the legacy ones.
This explains the type of addressing based on account type

From this:
Quote
Account Type Default IP Address Optional alternative
Broadband Your Way (all options) Dynamic Static

I think that being an 'optional alternative' would mean a static IP would have to be requested via a ticket.

Not 100% though, maybe someone could clarify?

Port forwarding problems has nothing to do with a static internet ip unless you are not using NAT which 99.9% of routers use . To port forward the target pc mus have a static ip
