Are you saying that you need a static external IP? If so, you would have to talk to your ISP about that. If you have your router setup properly, those other services should work. Its strange that you can view web pages, but cant download stuff. Makes me think it isn't a problem with your IP.

Having a DMZ or static IP's should not affect the reliability of your computers and other network equipment. Usually these outages are the fault of your ISP.

I would also just enable uPnP (Universal Plug and Play) on your router. It may make port forwarding much more simple for you
