How to assign a Public IP address to a home pc on a home network
I'm slightly embarrased by this post, but in my defence it is 2.30am and I should really be in bed!
Essentially, what I am trying to do is assign a public IP address to a PC which is currently on my home network, which currently has a private range.
Here is what I currently have:
Home Network: 192.x.x.x Subnet 255.255.255.0
Router WAN: 82.x.x.x Subnet 255.255.255.255
Public IP's 217.x.x.x Subnet 255.255.255.248
Ideally, I would have all normal "home" devices remain on my private 192.x.x.x range using my router as the gateway which also currently has a private address of 192.x.x.1. The router isn't the highest quality router in the word - it is a Tenda.
Now, I know that the easy way around would be to just throw away the idea of my private range and give the router a 217.x.x.x and set all of my devices to pick up 217 addresses via DHCP from the router, but ideally what I want is for all of my current home devices to not have to be reconfigured.
While there is a fair chance that I might wake up refreshed and know exactly what to do, I would be interested to know how others would/do go about this?
