You would be far better served using the DHCP reservation for this as it's better to just use a reservation from a known working IP address.

For a static IP to work it is required that you use an IP that is outside the range of DHCP or you could end up using an IP that is already in use or will be assigned to another machine later which won't work.

It's very simple, just follow directions which have already been posted.


I did try changing it to 192.168.1.xx digits. I'm connected to the router but I cant access the internet.

Could you explain what is happening that causes you to believe someone is spoofing your address?

If someone is spoofing your address at the office, you need to resolve that with your IT department. Changing the IP address won't prevent someone from messing around, if that's the case.

I'm going to guess that spoofing isn't really what is happening, but I don't know the situation. It might be error msgs about IP address conflicts.

Post a screen shot of what happens - why you think it's spoofing. Again, if it is spoofing, talk to your IT person or network admin. Spoofing is not something that should take place in a work environment.

Thanks

Well actually your router uses a default gateway of 192.168.2.1 therefore the static IP needs to look something like 192.168.2.xx not 1.xx

Use DHCP reservation if you are having problems with the static IP settings. It makes no difference either way and it's much easier to set up because you do not need to worry about using an IP that is outside the DHCP range.

Ikurrt, you are not entering "xx" as the octet, are you? "xx" means an unknown number.

Which is why I mentioned using DHCP reservation.

If you don't know what your doing this is much easier and saves me hours of trying to explain how IP addresses work.

.XX is just an example, you would need to use an actual number where .XX is. This number also needs to be outside the DHCP range so it won't be repeated.

This entire thing is really blown way out of proportion now, this is very simple.

Good catch Britton30.

Maybe this will help everyone.

Set your IP config to "Obtain automatically" for the IP address and DNS servers

connect and post an ipconfig - all
