I have 4 pcs running Windows 7 Professional connected to the Internet through a Hughes Net hookup. The pcs need to be networked together and need to have static IPs. There is only one cable connection to the Hughesnet modem/router or whichever it is. Can a Cisco Router be used to connect the other 3 pcs without overriding the IPs? Do I need to set the Cisco to disable DHCP?
Software/Hardware used: Windows 7 Professional, regular HP desktops
