Fixed IP Query

There are a couple of programs and websites that i want to use where a fixed ip address is needed.

Now i understand i can pay plusnet £5 to set on up for me but how do i set my router up for this?Huh
I am on unlimted fibre and I use an Apple Airport Extreme connected direct to the BT Openreach Modem
Any help would be appreciated

Re: Fixed IP Query

you don't need to do anything with your router, you're just assigned the IP address and it'll be picked up on your connection.

Re: Fixed IP Query

@dvorak A reboot is needed: (http://www.plus.net/support/broadband/products/IP_addresses_broadband.shtml)
"3. How to switch between a dynamic & static IP
Plusnet Unlimited / Unlimited Fibre
Go to Add-Ons, which you'll find under Connection Settings in My Account
From here, you can see your current IP address settings. Switch between static and dynamic by clicking the button.
Please note:
There's a £5 setup fee to activate a Static IP
You'll need to reboot your router before the change takes effect
If you remove a Static IP, you're unlikely to get the same address if you switch back in the future
Add-Ons will not appear for accounts where switching is not available"
