Okay I had no idea how to name this in the title but I'll explain my question. I want to ask a question about this:

I have a laptop and I am hosting a game server at the moment at home. Now my problem is while portforwarding I have to add in my ipv4 address while portforwarding. My laptop is connected with wifi and my ipv4 address is changing everytime I boot my laptop.

So I am actually wondering where to ask this. I have no experience with http://serverfault.com/ whatsoever, so my first thought was for http://superuser.com/ but I remembered Serverfault. Now where should I ask this?

Definitely not serverfault. This is not a professional IT environment, and you'll be hounded off the site for asking about your "server" with a wifi dynamic IP... – Wooble Dec 20 '13 at 15:00
This is definitely a super user question. – Servy Dec 20 '13 at 15:00

From the Help section of ServerFault :

it is not about…

  • Anything in a home or development environment
  • Product, service, or learning material recommendations
  • Career, salary, personnel, employment, or formal education
  • Licensing, legal advice, and circumvention of security or policy
  • Unauthorized hacking, password cracking, or system misuse

So right there you know it's not for you.


From the Help section of SuperUser :

Super User is for computer enthusiasts and power users. If you have a question about …

  • computer hardware,
  • computer software, or
  • personal and home computer networking

This is more like what you want to ask. You have it. SuperUser it is.
