I'm experiencing some problems connecting to servers (game-related usually) through the DGN1000 router I was provided by Orange with our internet.
So far I've tried to operate through a static IP/DNS using a DNS I've got for orange online -
(Primary DNS: 126.96.36.199
Secondary DNS: 188.8.131.52)
The static IP (which I've read is the IPv4 code in my cmd) doesn't seem to work, the internet simply stops working after I've inputted that, let alone with the DNS involved!
I've tried setting up the ports for specific programmes, but so far I've had no luck - I think the static IP etc is the sticking point.
Any advice or help would be really useful, I'm not much of a techy (obviously) so I'd really appreciate it.
Edit: I just wanted to add, I've tried using DMZ briefly to see if that alleviates the problem temporarily but it still seems to be unable to operate, should that not fix the port issue (albeit not permenantly)?
