  2. Click Network and Internet.
  3. Click Network and Sharing Center.
  4. Click Change adapter settings on the left.
  5. Right-click the connection you want to change and choose Properties.

  1. Left-click “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)” to select it, then click Properties.
  2. Select the radio button "Use the following IP address".
