Time Warner and Public IP's

By Tagle ·
Hello all, here is my question and thanks in advance if someone can help me out here.

Link to our router =

I use a Linksys Wireless Broadband Router connected to Road Runner. At
this moment our basestation is using DHCP for our client computers and is set in routing mode.
Everything works fine and we have no problems as of yet.

The basestation is configured with a static IP address that Time Warner allocated to us.

1st. We order 2 servers and 2 more PC's.
2nd. Time Warner gave us 5 more static IP's for us to use.
3rd. We want to give our 2 servers and 2 extra PC's public
static IP so we can remotely connect and administer them
if needed. We diont want them using the DHCP from the basestation.
4th. What steps do we need to accomplish this?
5th. I tried giving one server and one PC a public static
IP but I can seem to get out to the web.
6th. Can this be done?
7th. Our internal netwotk is using the defualt DHCP and
network setting are 192.168.2.x and so on.
8th. The basestation is using a static IP TW gave us.

We have a Windows 2003 server and 4 windows xp clients.

NAT and what not.

Your local segment is using a private IP. The router is doing the work of translating this to a public IP.

Your 192.168.2.x goes out to a public address.

Now, how to do this in reverse? You must setup static routes within your router from a public address to the corresponding local address, and allow what ports and protocols you need. Your server and wks that you would like to have "public addresses" will have private addresses on 192.168.2.x and the router will do the work of translating them.

Without a hint of malice, if this much is beyond your understanding, get someone in to help. Its not so dificult, but will make you very unhappy for many hours if you dont understand.

What is the desire end result of all the router configs?

I'm trying to figure out what it is you're trying to do because I could have a simplier solution for you.

Please advise.
