ok, my home wireless is let up to assign IPs using DCHP. this normally has never been a problem but I recently was invited to a bit torrent site and I needed to set up port forwarding on my router to to make sure I'm connectable to other seeds/peers. the only problem is port forwarding has to be set up to a specific IP. so occasionally I'll get an IP ending in .102 or something instead of .100 what it's set up to forward to.
I know I can solve this problem by setting up static IP's to all the computers in my house using the network, but my question is this; if I set up static IP's for my home network, will it only be static on my home network? I take my laptop around a lot and can see it making problems for me if I have my computer set up for a static IP and try to connect to another network.
so basically, is DCHP network specific or or will I remain with a static IP no matter what network I connect to.
incase the info is relevant: running OSX and a linksys wireless router.
That's what Jamil said.
