http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, I'm a little new to linux and networking. I have a small server that I want to use as storage for my home network. I have a wireless router acting as a bridge that is getting wireless signal from our main router in the home and turns the signal into wired for my network. I have a 8 port switch hooked to the router which all my computers are connected to. Everything works fine if I just use DHCP.

I'm running Ubuntu Des (Hardware)
