To keep the TV guide and video on demand you need to do this.

Ok, that other poster's post helps if you had a third party (own RJ-45 WAN port router) and want to keep FIOS TV working.

 

Since you do not, moving along.

 

You need to setup a Static IP on/for the computer that you want to host on and then forward to it.

 

There appears to be two ways of doing that, but I am not sure of that.

 

I am sure of one way of doing it, so I will tell you how to do that it that way.

 

#1 In the router go to Advanced -> IP Address Distribution 

 

#2 Make sure the DHCP Range does not occuy the whole subnet.

 

#3 If the DHCP Range occupies the while subnet, select for Network(Home/Office) the edit button under action that looks like a pencil/pen and then make the DHCP Range smaller.

 

For example if the router's LAN IP is 192.168.1.1 and the DHCP Range is 192.168.1.2-192.168.1.254, then you could make the Starting IP Address 192.168.1.100 (which would make the DHCP Range 192.168.1.100-192.168.1.254)

 

#4 Then on your computer that you want to host on/forward to, you make it's manual Static IP outside of the DHCP Range.

 

For example with the router at 192.168.1.1 and the DHCP Range 192.168.1.100-192.168.1.254, outside of the DHCP Range would be 192.168.1.6

 

Full Settings outside of the DHCP Range for example would be:

 

IP Address: 192.168.1.6

Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1

(At least one DNS Server required, but typically two) ex 4.4.4.3 and 4.4.4.4

 

//

 

The second way of setting a Static IP, appears to be go to Advanced -> IP Address Distribution -> Connection List. Then from the list, that looks like this UI

Select the Edit icon under Action.
