Hi Guys

I'm having problems getting the port forwarding to word on said modem. I have 
the main pc hooked up via the ethernet port directly and my others are 
wireless. I understand that I need to set up static ip's for port forwarding 
to work but that's where I'm running into problems. Already been googling 
around a bit to no avail. The most comprehensive instructions I've come 
across assume a windows system alas. And it seems setting up the dns and such 
is a lil different in ubuntu (8.04 here). Currently all my pc's are on 
roaming mode as it's the only way I've been able to connect to the net. Once 
I can get the static ip's working I SHOULD be fine with the port forwarding

DLink's tech site suggests the following using a windows system

Select the 'Use the following IP address' option:
IP address:
Subnet mask:
Default Gateway: (your router's address)
DNS: and (or whichever your provider is using)

Any help appreciated
