someone i know is using the same router i am (linksys wrt54g) and it constantly changes its ip# (he's trying to host a cs server). i somehow got my router not to change its ip constantly (i guess) but i forgot how (i guess). anyone know how?

Nah, your friend must have a dynamic IP address whilst yours is a static IP address. This can be changed if you talk to your ISP.

You do mean an Internet game, right? If you mean a LAN game, then that's a different ballgame...

Are you positive that it did change at one point? You probably just never noticed, but it stayed the same at all times. I didn't notice I had a dynamic IP until I actually compared them side by side one time.
