Did you remember to follow this guide to set up a static local ip? http://www.portforward.com/networking/static-xp.htm

You open up the web browser and type in the IP of the router ( usually) in order to get the router to make setting changes. Is that what you are talking about? It doesn't say anything on the page I linked to about using your browser for anything.
