Bt Broadband static IP

A friend has a BtBusiness Broadband account and they have given him a static ip address and a 2wire 2700HGV router modem. Is it necessary to manually enter the IP address that they have sent him into the router settings or is it automatically set? If it needs to be entered manually does anyone know what the rest of the settings should be Primary/secondary DNS, gateway etc. I can't find any info on BT website at all.
Any help appreciated
Thanks

Yes you will have to enter the static IP address. Obtaining it automatically will be of no use.

As far as I can remember, I think the prefered DNS server should be 192.168.1.1 ( the router ). The subnet mask is usually 255.255.255.0.

the default gateway should be the same as the dns server. 192.168.1.1 (or try 192.168.2.1 if the 192.168.1.1 willnot work)

Give those a try, it may go.

It is awhile ago and I may be wrong.
