  3. Mark the Show Advanced Options check box.                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Click on the bottom checkbox to show advanced options
  4. Under IP Settings, change it from DHCP to Static.                                                                                                                                                                                                             Change DHCP to Static
  5. When using static IP addresses on home and other private networks, they should be chosen from within the standard private IP address ranges listed:
    • 10.0.0.0 through 10.255.255.255
    • 172.16.0.0 through 172.31.255.255
    • 192.168.0.0 through 192.168.255.255
  6. Now enter the IP address.  This step is specific to each network.  Ex: 192.168.1.128
  7. Then enter the Gateway, which is the base IP address of your network. (Based on previous example: 192.168.1.1)
  8. Tap Save and let the network reconnect.
