+ 0 Votes Add route to your network ask.hemant 6 years ago Add route to your network instead of DHCP run on your router with help of following command. route add "ipadd" mask "mask" "your own domain" metric "metric". pls let me it works or not + 0 Votes Hmm sunrunnerster 6 years ago While I'm no noobie to networking, please explain to me what 'metric' is in this case. Also, does this mean on my router I should turn of DHCP? If I read you correctly, I add a route for each connection on the network? Also, how would I go about adding a static ip and/or route for the network storage device?
