In order to change from a dynamic to a static, enter your control panel, and double click on network connections. Then right click on your network card, and select proprties. Now double click on tcp/ip and change it from obtain ip address automatically to use the following address. Enter an address you want to use and now you are static.

The program at the command prompt is ipconfig.

Type ipconfig /all

Tell me what you are trying to accomplish? Static ip means one that you assign rather than assigned to you.

I have a Counter-Strike: Condition Zero server. I want to have the same IP all the time so my friends dont have to keep looking for my server.

Unless you are assigned a specific ip address from your ISP you will not be able to use a static ip address. Your isp has to assign that and they usually dont these days. Instead you should use a dynamic dns client like dyndns.

You would need to get the dns servers from your isp. Leave them for obtaining one automatically for noe

OK sorry i forgot to check if USE THE FOLLOWING DNS SERVER ADDRESSES gave the option to pick OBTAIN DNS SERVER ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY or USE THE FOLLOWING DNS SERVER ADDRESSES. When i choose use the following addres it only gives me the option to USE the following dns server addresses. How do i find my DNS servers from my IP? Is there a formula or something?

No there is not. The dns servers can be totally different for your isp than what your ip address is. Just give their support a call or check their website's support pages and it should be listed somewhere
