Post Router is acting as a DHCP server

A little bit more help if you can chuckl ...
My router (Belkin N1 Wireless Modem-Router) is operating as a DHCP server (I tried to set a static IP for it and noone on my network could connect to the net ... I think this is because my ISP resets and this is the reason why I got a domain name with dyndns -

I followed falko's howto for installing Ubuntu exactly and it configured DHCP (communicating with Belkin I guess) early in the install - then I set a static IP as per the Howto on my Ubuntu box. WAS this the right thing to do in my case?

Thanks in anticipation.
