You can purchace a block of static IP's from your ISP. I think mine are costing me $5 a month for 5. Originally yes, I had a single Static IP. Using a block the router is set up as transparent and the computers handle the work. In this case I have 2 computers under Static (Servers), 2 cameras with Static IP's and the Netgear router with a Static. There are about a dozen computers all total. The gaming computers all go through the netgear and have dynamic IP's.

And yes, reseting the old Linksys would fix the problem for a short time. It was old and dying. I sold it for $2 to some poor dumb sucker.
