Setting IP and DNS
Leave it as it is, although it's a static IP it's assigned by the ISP (but
it's always the same!), some routers won't work if you assign it yourself.
DNS servers can be assigned if you want to use a different pair.
My router is currently set to dynamic IP address allocation and
dynamic DNS servers - "Get Automatically From ISP"
Everything works just fine.
My ISP has given me a static IP address and lists its DNS servers.
Are there any advantages in actually entering the IP address and DNS
server details into my router? If so, what are they?
