Hello!
Every time when I start my laptop I have to set up IP for WiFi manually in order to connect to Internet via router. Can I just set it up once and it will stay the same after reboot?

alexey@alexey-laptop:~$ ifconfig

You can set it up on your acces point. On my router i can enter a mac adress and tie a static IP adress on that. On the laptop/desktop you enable DHCP.

Something strange just happened. I rebooted my laptop and without me doing anything it connected to Internet (assigned the same 192.168.1.33 IP). Did I miss something about setting up or what?

It's made in Belarus ADSL YA-200A. Anyway... the problem has been solved by itself... so thank you for your time.
