ICT 10Assigning IP Address
Assigning a Dynamic IP Address- In a home network with several computers
and devices, it is ideal to assign each of them a specific address. This is for the purpose of avoiding problems when you do troubleshooting which requires figuring out the IP address of each of them. It is also a means to prevent address conflicts between the devices. You can also manage them with ease if you have assigned their own addresses.
1.Open the Control Panel’s Network Connections icon.
2.Open the icon representing your computer’s network connection.
3.Click the Properties button in the Status dialog box.
4.From the list of items, choose Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
