Static IP and DMZ options help

Hi all,


I am changing broadband provider and they are offering a number of free static ips.


I use Xbox and Playstation online with one in a DMZ and one with port forwarding.


Would there be any benefit using the static ip provided by the ISP?


Would it help ping, stability, upstream or any other aspects of quality?

Can you clarify a little please?  Do you mean your ISP is offering to give you two IP addresses to your home instead of the usual one?  If they are, this could help with NAT issues since each machine would effectively be on a different network.  The downside would be that it may cost more.  Also whether they are static or dynamic makes little difference.

If you're having NAT problems, putting one in the DMZ and port forwarding the other is unlikely to help.  To get two consoles to operate together with an open NAT, you'll need a router that fully supports UPnP.  If you can do that, you won't need two IP addresses from your ISP.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
