Problems connecting to internet with Static IP
I have a problem with connecting to the internet. I have bought a new tablet PC (Archos 101) which runs Android 2.2.1
I have a home network with 8 static IP addresses. I have set up the WEP key and connected to the wireless router. This says it is connected on the tablet. I have also set up in the advanced settings the static IP details, including the gateway and subnet mask.
The problem I have is that even though it connects to the wireless router, when I go to the tablet browser, I can not get onto the web.
I have 2 other laptops and 2 iPod Touch's connected wirelessly and with no problems.
Can anyone help as I've struggled to find a solution.
Many thanks for your time.

I use the a netmask 255.255.255.248 same as you giving 8 IP adresses 5 of which are usable for devices,2 are reserved by TCP and 1 used for the router.
Make sure your DNS setting is set to your gateway address. To prove if it is a DNS problem enter the following in the browser address field BBC - Homepage this is the IP address of the BBC obtained by doing a tracert for BBC - Homepage
Hope this helps
