Windows 7: Static IP under Build 7100 64 bit.

Static IP under Build 7100 64 bit.

Having problems to create static IP.

Hunted around here and found that I need not worry about IPv6 but I can't get static IP to work with IPv4 on Win 7 -64 bit.

Haven't changed my router or other PC's (XP) in the network. When I use the exact IP settings that worked under XP, Win 7 rejects them and auto fix goes back to auto select IP.

Is there something special I need to do?

BTW auto assign works, but I want to manually select the IP.

You can safely disable IPv6. I do.

In system tray, right click network icon. Choose Open Network and Sharing Center. Click on Local Area Connection | Properties | double click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4).

Set ip address the same as your router's config page address, except change the last part of it to anything else.

Example: Router is 192.168.1.1
Make your ip 192.168.1.50

or Router is 192.168.0.1
Make your ip 192.168.0.50

Subnet mask = 255.255.255.0
Default gateway = router's config page ip address, usually 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1

Enter the same ip for preferred dns server as default gateway/router's address.

Ok your way out. You could reboot also, but probably not necessary. If your router doesn't have any setting preventing it, you will now have a static ip address working correctly.

Check it from the command prompt with the command:

ipconfig

So the only difference I see is no entry in Alt DNS - I'll give it a go. Amazing it worked, I unchecked IPv6 didn't use alternate DNS information and it works.

Many thanks.

I have tried this several times and it has not worked for me in 7077, 7100 or 7127. Each time it has come up with the orange triangle in my network tray icon and when you troubleshoot it....it goes back to auto select.

I think it is a problem with IPv6 more than anything but so far I haven't fiddled to turn it off.
I really should as it is creating problems with my Billion Router / Modem. I am having to Power Cycle the Billion once a day as it loses DHCP whenever the lease expires on my Win 7 machine.....

No, not a problem with IPv6 as that is not necessary to get a working ip address under IPv4, as you'd like to do. Turning IPv6 off may even help, ya. Things that come to mind are:

-are you choosing a unique ip address? one other than any other machines or devices on the network?
-disable the DHCP server on router completely. Not needed (if all devices on network will be setup static.)
-make sure the are no unnecessary restrictive settings in the router. An example would be the built in firewall preventing the ip address you are choosing, as in it's blocking a range.
-make sure that if mac address is checked and verified by the router, that your nic card (or onboard lan) is included to be allowed

Basically, if it isn't working for you, the router is most likely preventing it for one reason or another.

Britgeezer: Glad it's working for you. You could add the dns server that your ISP provides as the alternate entry, but that is unnecessary to do.

Hey torrentg
Thanks for the reply....after a lot of searching it appears the Billion doesn't like the teredo tunneling interface....I am not sure of all the techy reasons...
So...I have set a fixed IP on my PC and then set a fixed Host on the Billion, only for this PC at present. I will see how that goes but I am pretty sure the others are OK in using the Billion for DHCP. I hope they are as I really don't want to have to go through setting them for the XP laptop, PS3, WHS, Network printer, iPhone and Winmobile.....
It would take time away from downloading new builds and posting in here...

+ Rep for your help and guidance.

checked, I've tried to deactivate the router's firewall with no success

no check on the MAC address

and I have disabled IPv6.

I'm out of ideas for now, with a dynamic IP everything is fine, but I need a static IP for routing applications.
Oh and I have another computer on win XP with a static IP, and it runs perfectly.
My router is a linksys wireless-G (WAG200G) btw

Thank you
