TCP/IP Stack Configuration for Static IP Addresses

Overview

Once you have leased a block of static IP addresses, you will need to configure the TCP/IP stack on each individual computer with one of the static IP addresses. You will also need to specify the subnet mask, gateway and domain name server.

As mentioned in the follow-up e-mail you received from Qwest®, the static IP addresses you have leased will go into effect by 5 p.m. on the next business day after you leased them. Please do not attempt to update your TCP/IP stacks prior to that time or you may loose Internet connectivity.
