How do I assign a static IP address to my adapter on Windows 2000?
Step 1 Right-click on My Network Places and select Properties.
Step 2 Right-click on the Local Area Connection which represents your network card and select Properties.
Step 3 Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click Properties.
Click Use the following IP address and enter an IP address that is on the same subnet as the LAN IP address on your router. Example: If the router´s LAN IP address is 192.168.0.1, make your IP address 192.168.0.X where X is a number between 2 and 99. Make sure that the number you choose is not in use on the network.
Set Default Gateway the same as the LAN IP address of your router (192.168.0.1).
Set Primary DNS the same as the LAN IP address of your router (192.168.0.1).
Secondary DNS is not needed or enter a DNS server from your ISP.
Click OK twice. You may be asked if you want to reboot your computer. Click Yes.
