i want to switch to static ip. in order to do that, do i have to disable DHCP server? if i don't disable DHCP server, do i keep static DHCP or not?

Yes you will keep the static IP. However, if the static IP you assisgn is in the DCHP pool then it might get assigned to another computer. If you put the static IP into DHCP's exceptions the nyou shouldn't have a problem

Why is it you want a static IP?
Were wanting to use a particular IP address?

Because you will only be able to have an IP that begins 192.168.0.x

To do this, supposing you want a static IP of 192.168.0.2 (don't use 192.169.0.1 as that is probably the routers address), enter 192.169.0.3 as your starting IP address and say 192.169.0.10 as your Ending IP address.

Then go onto the computer you want static IP for and (assuming XP) right click my network places, select properties, in the window that opens right click you LAN connection and go properties, select TCP/IP and click the properties button. In the window that opens select "use this IP address" and your IP of 192.168.0.2 and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 (it should fill this in for you)
