Hi there I has just wondering if it was going to configure a network through a switch using Telstra clear that require a Static IP address. Can someone let me know if this is at all possible. Thanks

It the switch is a router/modem and has NAT then yes you can. You would config the router to the static IP and then put all your PC's on a private IP range and have their default gateways pointed to the router and it would do all the translation.

If it is just a straight switch with no router then no. However it would be the modem/router that has the static IP on it and the switch just does forwarding to the correct place.
