    could you please give more info on your network?

    I see you are using an access point, do you have a router also?

    That's your problem then. Broadband providers typically only allow one IP, unless you pay for two or more. Buy yourself a cheap router and plug the AP into one of the LAN ports. That or call your provider and lease another IP.
