Here's the deal. I'm not a network guy, I've just been tasked with getting the office network back to the way it was.
The owner of a small company did not remember the password to our router, a Motorola Netopia 3000 DSL router. As such, we had to do a hard reset on the device. This in turn reset all of the information in the router and we've been working on getting it back "right" for the last couple of days now.
It is currently "up" and they have internet access but where we're having the issue is, is having the router dole out DHCP IPs to any machine in the office.
We have a stack of static IPs that I've used to configure the router but is there a way to configure this Netopia to use a static IP address, so I can access the router from outside the network, but give dynamic IP addresses on the "inside" of the network?
Right now we have a stack of 8 static IPs which doesn't leave a lot left over if we have people come into the office and want to get on the internet.
As alway, help is greatly appreciated.
