    does the router have to be static? if it works otherwise, then you should be fine.

    I belive it has to be static cuz it will not work otherwise. I was present when it was set up i just dont remember what the ip was.

    if the other PCs are static do an ipconfig and you should use the gateway address, which is most likely the unless some change the IP range of the router / network.
