Finally remember to click OK to save settings.2) Select Use the following DNS server addresses, as shown in the following figure.
And then type the DNS server IP address, which should be provided by your ISP. Step 2 In Category view click on Network and Internet Step 3 Click on Network and Sharing Center Step 4 Click on Change Adapter Settings Step 5 Right click on Local Area Connection and click Properties Step 6 Click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IP) then click Properties .
One way that I’ve already written about is logging into your router and reserving an IP address for a particular device.
The advantage to this method is that all the changes are being made in one location, so it’s easy to see which devices have static IP addresses and what the addresses are.
To get fixed IP settings, select Use the following IP address and Use the following DNS server addresses, then enter the IP address, subnet mask, default gateway and DNS server manually.
After completing the steps, the manual configuration will not change even if there’s a DHCP server leasing IP addresses in the network.By default, when you type in the IP address, it fills out the subnet mask for you.The Default gateway and Preferred DNS server should both be set to the IP address of your router.The best way to avoid this conflict is to log into your router or whichever device is acting as the DHCP server and change the IP address distribution start address.If you start the address at something like .10 or .11, then you’ll have several IP addresses free that you can use to assign as static IPs.In the Network and Sharing Center window, click on Change adapter settings on the left-hand side.This will open the Network Connections window where you will see a list of all physical and virtual network devices. Now click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) to select it and then click on Properties again.This article will explain the second method, but only for Windows and OS X.Note: When assigning a static IP address, be sure you are not choosing an IP that is in the DHCP range, otherwise you might get a message about an IP address conflict, which is what happens when two devices have the same IP address on the network.To check if you configured the settings correctly, or to tell if your device is using static or dynamic settings, use these steps: Whatever you’re configuring, an Ethernet or Wi-Fi adapter, it’s recommended to assign an IP address within the network range and outside of the DHCP server scope to allow proper connectivity and avoid address conflicts, because if two devices share the same IP address neither of them will be able to connect to the internet.If you don’t see the option to edit the networking settings, it’s likely because you’re not using the version of Windows 10 that supports this feature.
