I had a Fedora box running using my static IP 126.96.36.199, etc, all configured according to what the ISP required. Just recently the hard drive failed (and I should have been keeping better backups) - while it is being recovered I would like to put up a webpage on my Archlinux PC explaining the problem - I presently do not have sufficient access to change the DNS record assigned to the domain.
When I change my ip address while my system is running to 188.8.131.52, ifconfig reports the new ip address, but http://whatismyip.com/ does not. When I change it and reboot, I can't ping - the message I recieve is "
connect: Network is unreachable" (when given one of google.com 's IP addresses - hostnames give me
ping: unknown host xxx). Until I have access to the DNS system, what can I do to make this work?
Edit: With new IP address, same problem, IP is now 184.108.40.206. Some commands might be useful:

Update: have new static IP addresses, verified to work in Windows... Relevant portions of /etc/rc.conf below:
