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.
