Cannot set Static address

I`ve tried my usual tactics, can anyone tell my why the ip4 properties are grayed out and will not let me set a static address ?

This is moms PC, Thanks all

Believe me I'm no expert on such matters but I do have a idea.

Could it be a permission problem on Home Network?

Hey Brian,

No you have another one listed in "Network Connections" that has its properties enabled?

What do you mean by "usual tactics?" It maybe a conflict with ipv6. Try disabling it, check proxy settings, also the suggestion here. TCP/IPv4 Properties Button Disabled... ??? - Microsoft Community

What do I mean by "usual tactics" by that I mean I have tried every thing I know in my head, which is a lot

Every PC I`ve ever worked on brings up the Local Connection Properties, this PC will not, and it is not setup any different from the others.

I already tried all that towns ip6 is not used yet.

I will look into what Jack has suggested, I did once but I`ll go over it again.

Brink I uninstalled the adapter to change its name back to Local Area Connection, so that`s fine now

There is only 1 adapter (on the board) on this PC

If you use virtual machines, you may have a virtual switch that this needs to be set in instead.

No VM`s

And it`s not joined to a Home Group

This is an odd issue.

Yes it is odd because your picture (post #1) shows this computer Joined to a Home Group.

When I uninstalled the adapter, it knocked it out of the group, but I still can`t do a thing with it, oh the agony

I have 3 other PC`s in the house joined to the Home Group, and none of them are giving me this issue.

I`m gonna slap another NIC in there and see what happens, maybe it`s garbage.
