Setting an IP address

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
How do u set up ur computer internet connection to use the same IP address every time the computer is turned on. Does that make sense. I've done it before, its just been a long time... Also, im doing this on my XP machine, I believe its probably different on my Vista machine...

First find what IP your router usually gives out. Start > run > type cmd and enter. then type ipconfig. Write the info down (IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, and DNS servers)

go to control panel > Network connections > Right mouse click the adapter you are using and go to properties.

In the scrolling window find Internet Protocol [TCP/IP] and double click it.

Here type the info you got from the ipconfig command, except change the last number in the IP address to something different. something high like 60 or something. then just save it all.
