Windows 7: How to attach a static IP to specific PC

That configuration will work great. If any of your other PC's are getting a dhcp address that is no longer in the range you should run ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew. So they can be in the current new defined range.

Yes, that is one thing to try.

Change 192.168.1.2 (as shown in your screenshot) to 192.168.1.8

Restart the router.
(If you do not see a way to restart the router via the browser interface,
...turn the router off via a power switch or by pulling the power cord out
...wait a minute or two
...apply power to the router again.)

Restart each computer on the network.

If the computer that has 192.168.1.7 assigned cannot connect to the internet, change the router settings back using one of your other computers.
So it is possible for this not to work, too?

No it will work. But any pc that has the address of 2-8 will still keep the address until there lease is up so best thing to do is run ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew for them to get new addresses.

You will need to add the static address for you 1 pc.

I've already answered that question in an earlier post :-)

But I'll repeat it here in more detail. I use a static IP address on a laptop (for reasons that I'll not go into here). When I visit homes in my area to work on computers, I sometimes have to change the DHCP range on their routers to include the static IP address that I'm using or I cannot connect to the internet.

If DHCP is enabled, then all computers must use an IP from the DHCP range.
If DHCP is not enabled, then any statically assigned IP address will get thru.
My guess is that the manufacturer of the routers thinks this is a security feature.
This is not true for all routers - but it is true for most routers in my area.

So - I do not know if it will work for you until you try it.
