If you only have 1 DNS you only fill in one thing. Dont make much difference.

I did. At www.portforward.com I found theAmbit router tutorial, I set up a static IP, and the tutorial Ambit images are exactly the same as my router's page. EXCEPT, there is no option to port forward on mine. I have clicked every link multiple times. Portforward.com says to go to "Gateway setup" then to "port forwarding. Which I do, but when I go to gateway setup, I only have two options. None of which are port forwarding. It also says "Basic Gateway Setup" instead of "Gateway Setup". I dunno if parental controls are involved, but my parents didn't set any.

Here is the closest thing to the port forwarding thing of the two options I have under gateway setup:

I did put in that 1 DNS Number but i still can't host, Badspot can you help out here?

Eh Sorry for the Double Post...But here is what I see for the DNS number(s)

DNS 1: 255.188.146.145

It's usually 255.255.255.0, no need to change it.

How do you know your ping is dead? Who is telling you this?
