hi,

OS : WIN XP

my PC is connected to a LAN and the ip address are autoatically assigned.

call me crazy but i would like to have a specific IP address to my machine (currently its 10.100.96.44 and i want to change it to 10.100.96.96)

i vaguely remember that even though the IP's are assigned dynamically there is a way to obtain the IP address one wish to have.

can any1 help me out??

Yos you can assign a static IP even though your router/server is DHCP. Go to your router and write down the DNS IP adresses.
You will need to
1) Enter your machines IP address in your NIC's properties
2) Enter your Gateway address. This is your router's IP address.
3) Enter the DNS IP addresses from your router. You ISP will provide them upon request also. The more the better but 1 will do.

Fairly simple.

You will need to obtain the DNS IP addresses. Call your ISP, they will provide them for you. They should also be in the status window of your router.

there is 2 ways u can do the dns entry. you may enter the router's ip address as the dns server, it in turn, will automatically adjust the dns server appropriately.

also, within the command prompt, if you type in "ipconfig /all" it will give you all the imformation about yuour internet services you need to make your static ip work.including your current dns server addresses

this will save you a phone call and potential wait, albeit, this will also give you the correct information, both ways are correct, i was merely giving you a couple of other options

have fun
