I port forwarded the appropriate ports and my NAT was open last night, now my PC's IP changed and I cannot get it open again

Recommended Posts

My ISP changed my modem from a Puma chip one to an SB8200 but I guess that changed my PC IP from 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.8.

 

Ok so no problem right? I just changed the IP for all the ports to 192.168.1.8 but it is still moderate. Any ideas?

Changing the modem wouldn't affect the IP your PC gets as the XR is the one giving your PC an IP. Reboot the PC/Router now you've made this change and should work fine after that.

So I rebooted the router to see if that would and it changed my PC’s IP address again?  This is going to be a pain if I have to deal with this every time my router reboots.
 

On all my old routers it was set it and forget it

If that is the case give it a reserved IP in LAN Settings and then it won't change until you change it

Ok thanks that did it. Gave it a reserve IP and then changed the ports to that IP and I am open again.
