Post#1 » Sat Nov 16, 2019 8:28 am

ok so a few days ago my modem died on me and my isp sent me out a new one i have the dreampi connected to my modem via Ethernet. what i need help with is i need to use port forward just in case any of the games i play online need the prts forward, how do i find my dreamcast ip address?

so heres what i need help on

#1 i need to know how to find the ip address of my dreamcast
#2 i need to know how to setup a static ip for the dreamcast if i even need a static ip
#3 i need to know how to forward the ports in my router/modem combo the router is built into the modem

also if it matters i only have 2 devices connecting via wifi my cellphone and my kindle fire all other devices connect via ethernet including my PS4

im rather new to the dreampi so if you have any suggestions feel free

Most routers allow DMZ, which I use so no ports were ever opened up on my router...and all games work.
