How to Set/Configure Static IP on Windows 11 (Video and Graphical Tutorial)

in Information Gateway5 months ago

Greetings!

Welcome to another edition of my Windows 11 tutorial. Today's topic is how to enable, configure, or turn on STATIC IP on Windows 11. In my first attempt to change the IPv4 settings on my new Windows 11 machine I tried to do it in the old way, but I noticed that it seems to be not working so I checked the settings of the Windows 11 then I found out that Microsoft seems to change the way how IPv4 is managed in Windows 11. This is what I found out... Check the video tutorial below. And next to the video tutorial is the graphical tutorial that I based on the video tutorial.

Nice and very easy to follow tutorial.

I am just wondering, what are the reasons why we should be configuring our static IP? I've seen that being done a lot of times by persons I know. I think I might have done that once or twice too. It just didn't stick to me the reason that I did it. 😊

Thanks for sharing.

In my case, I use Static IP to easily manage the devices in my network that is connected to a Router (via Wi-Fi or LAN cable).

Ohh see. Now I am getting the use cases for it.
I rarely manage my router so I don't usually mess with the Static IP.
Thanks for the feedback.

You're welcome and have a nice day ahead.
