    When I go to cmd, ipconfig/all it gives me all the same numbers as before. Nothing has changed

    DHCP on the router doles out addresses, and we are manually assigning the address. You could also try toggling your static IP address to another number, and reboot the phone (eg. 192.168.2.21) and retry. We also have to consider your encryption settings/password, but I want to ensure the IP assignments are within the specs of your existing lan/wlan. Currently, is the phone surfing after your router reset?

    Nothing WILL change..that exercise was simply to get your lan parameters.

    Yes the internet is surfing after i've reset the router, but this doesn't last long.

    AHA! I suspect you might have given your phone, your computer's IP address! Lets give the phone the 192.168.2.21 IP, reboot the phone and retry.

    Thanks very much for all your help!

    Okay. On the phone, do you have or can you get a terminal app installed? We need to ping the gateway (router) from the phone. Once installed, open terminal and type 'ping 192.168.2.1' (no quotes) and enter. This will tell us if the phone is still connected to the gateway.
