I have leased a block of public IP Addresses from my ISP. How do I configure my router to use them?

Your router MUST already have a static IP Address for your main ISP connection. Usually the block of additional addresses will be numbered quite differently from your base IP Address
Note: The first and last IP Addresses in the block are un-usable. Thus if you lease a block of 8 IP addresses only the middle 6 are available to be used. For example if your ISP specifies the IP address block of 188.8.131.52/29, the list of allocated IP addresses is:
184.108.40.206 Subnet Address
220.127.116.11 Broadcast Address
The following steps will show you how to configure your Vigor router to enter two of the IP addresses
a) Add 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124 into IP Alias of Internet Access.
b) We could view these IP addresses on NAT Setup/DMZ or Open Ports.
