if you can't connect to the internet using static ip, you need to know the
dhcp client's config on your pc.
as I stated before go to the network config and uncheck the roaming mode and
use the dhcp configuration, then in the console use the following:

cat /etc/resolv.conf

and write down the parameters and that would be the info needed to
configurate static ip address.

as I've just seen that your modem/router doesn't have a web-based method to
configurate port forwarding, so you'll have to read your manual to do that
using telnet, it's not difficult at all, although I haven't done it for
