Unable to Edit TCP/IP Protocol Settings

I just upgraded a WFW client running Microsoft's TCP/IP 32 to Win 95 and cannot edit the TCP/IP protocol settings!  It was set up to obtain an IP address from a DHCP server, but now I need to specify its own IP address.  Once I select this option and try to add the address, it simply beeps and won't accept anything!  I've tried removing and re-adding the protocol but nothing helps.  Must I reinstall Win 95?

Go into the registry to:
HKEY_Current_User / Software / Microsoft / Windows / CurrentVersion /  Policies
Look if there are any restrictions on network or system settings.
Try changing values to 0 (zero) if you find any concerning network.
You could also use the policy editor from the Win95 CDRom.
It's located in \Admin\Apptools\Poledit.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for trying.  There are no settings at all for network in the registry area you mentioned.  It lets me change the option buttons on all the tabs, but it is only when I try to enter numbers in the addresses or gateway or in the DNS addresses.  It does let me enter a new DNS host or domain name.

Thanks for trying but it would be helpful to have the answer in a style of English that is a little clearer.  Do you mean that yes, the only way to correct the problem is to reinstall Windows 95?

I knew that reinstalling Windows would work, I wanted to avoid that since it will be such a pain.
