Some install firewalls and more so that would be nice to know about. As well as if this was for the ethernet or the wifi adapter.
I?m doing this one for a friend
He?s running a Dell laptop OS: XP Pro
He?s un-able to manually assign IP address by selecting ?Use the following IP address:? in the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties window.
The Default is set to automatic
What happens when he tries to manually enter numbers is;
The numbers are entered and he hits ok.
A dialogue window appears stating that he must restart his computer for these changes to take effect. (Weird, I nerve have to restart in order to do this)
He restarts and then when he goes to check his TCP/IP settings they are whipped and set back to automatic again after the restart.
Any suggestions on how to fix this?
