You pay for a business-class connection...

 

Running a (web) server out of your home violates the TOS for residential service...

Policies are ok. Where can I find info on costs of static IPs?

@manimik

 

Static IP's are only available on Business Accounts.  Here is a link you may find helpful:  https://business.spectrum.com/.  You would need to contact Business Sales for pricing.

Why do you want a static ip?

twc/ spectrums home IP's are pretty stable

just be sure your modem is a modem only and you're using a seperate router and both are on a UPS

It could as simple as that @manimik just wants to avoid DHCP on his LAN when the modem or router resets after a power outage.  THAT we can help him with.  NOTE: This will not work if you rent a combination modem-router gateway unit from Spectrum.

 

First, set your user-owned router to begin its DHCP addressing at 192.168.1.100 

Next, set the server's IP address to 192.168.1.98 and

If your server is for video, set the camera IPs starting downward from 192.168.1.97

Then, while you are at it, set your wireless printer to 192.168.1.99
