I need to change the IP address of the network adapter that connects to the Internet from dynamically assigned to statically assigned (or vice versa).

Cause:  The DHCP server at your Internet service provider (ISP) has switched from using a dynamic IP address to using a static IP address.

Solution:  Reconfigure the network connection.

To reconfigure the network connection
  1. On a computer running Windows Small Business Server 2003, click Start, point to Control Panel, point to Network Connections, and then click the network connection you want to reconfigure.

  2. Double-click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and then modify how the IP address is assigned to the network connection.

ImportantImportant
If you are using a router to connect to the Internet, you must use a static IP address for the external interface (the interface that connects to your ISP) of the router. For more information, see the router manufacturer's documentation.
