Well, unless your using something really funky, you must not be setting up
the static addresses properly.  There is no magic involved in this.  If the
static information is setup correctly, a machine on your internal network
should work just fine.

Some common errors (when setting up static ip):
  Check the subnet mask - for a network, the mask is
  Check the gateway - make sure you point the gateway to the internal
address of your firewall/router
  Check your routes (netstat -nr). The default route ( points to
your gateway.

Good Luck.
