Windows 7: Assigning static IP address on Linksys E3000 router?

Here are the pics showing where to make your changes.

Navigate to Control Panel>Network and Sharing

click on the Local Area Connection
Then Click on Properties
Then Click on Internet Protocol Version 4
Then Click on Properties.
You will see an IP Address as well as the Preferred DNS Servers.
Write down the DNS Numbers since they will disappear once you click on "Use the Following IP Address"

Type in your IP Address and Subnet Mask, and the Default Gateway is the address of the router, which is normally 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1.

If you forget to write down the DNS numbers, you can grab them from your router or another PC.
I included an image of the Router page where the numbers are, I erased the numbers on my image for privacy reasons.

Why does everyone keep posting the same picture of the IPv4 properties? This isn't a complicated deal at all.

It seems very obvious to me how to proceed after my last post, you can either use IPv4 properties for static IP's or DHCP reservation, I just thought I would point out both ways to do this.

Hmmm must be an echo in here lol.

Your "last post" was #4. In post #6, the OP asked for more instructions; hence the partial echoing of your advice.

Well I would have filled out the IP's for him but at the time I had no idea what router or default gateway he was using. Echoing LOL I like that.

I did mention this though:
I don't know what your default gateway is, or the range of IP's your router is using, or which DNS servers you might want to use, or the subnet mask but all that info can be obtained by looking at your routers set up page or the ipconfig all.

Though I still don't see any info from the Op's router posted here and Zepher still ended up guessing at this information. If the Op wants precise information then we need to have all the stuff I already asked for.

I guess this stuff is so obvious to me but maybe not so obvious to others.

Let me say this again.... I'm NOT very adept at networks!!! It may be obvious to YOU, but it isn't to me. That's why I asked for help!

You obviously missed this post - Assigning static IP address on Linksys E3000 router? as I DID post a screenhot of my router settings!

Further more it's not like I'm some newb here, if someone asks for info, I'll provide it.

And unlike a lot of people I have no problem admitting I don't know everything.

Zepher, UsernameIssues,

I've not ignored your suggestions, I just haven't looked into them yet. Will do that tonight after I get out of school.

Thanks.

I think I just missed the picture the first time I posted, that does make it easier.

It's important to point out that if you use static IP's you have to use IP addresses that are out of the range of your DHCP server, otherwise the IP's could be re-assigned to another machine on your network.

In your case DHCP uses the range 192.168.1.100-149 so you can leave DHCP turned on if you use static IP's starting before 100 or after 149.

I guess Zepher didn't see the router set up page either because the addresses he used aren't correct.

The IPv4 static IP for your machine should look like the picture below. This will allow you to keep DHCP enabled while having a static IP for just this one machine. Notice how the last number "150" is just outside the range of DHCP addresses that your router uses.

I just used Google's DNS as an example.

The address in my post is my machine. I went ahead and moved it outside the DHCP range.

Hi guys,

Sorry for getting back to you so late but school and finals has kept me busy. I'm good now.

Anyway I used the suggestion Zepher gave.....



Though it's way to early to tell if they'll be future problems I do have internet connection and was even able to connect remotely. Just need to see if they're stick, they should but....

Anyways thanks for the inputs. All is good for now

Peace
