Right click Ethernet, select Properties.
Click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IP)->Properties.
Check "Use the following IP adress"

Control Panel / Network and Sharing Center / Change Adapter Settings

Right click on the network adapter / Select Properties

Highlight Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IP v4)
Click on the Properties button below

Manually enter the desired IP address, subnet mask.
You should be able to get by without a gateway address or DNS addresses.

OK. OK.

When you see the DNS settings you will most likely not need these if you just want to ping / access the machine with a switch or something.

Hi,

Since you would like to assign a static IP, you need to check the IP exclusion range from your DHCP scope and assign a IP within that range. Otherwise it will get clash if you give any IP address as you wish.

Note down a IP address from the DHCP exclusion list and perform a ping <IPAddress> and make sure that it's not giving reply.

Once you confirmed it, go to that PC Start>>run>>ncpa.cpl>>select the N/W card properties and select TCP/IPv4>>Properties>>Select Use the following IP address and set the IP address and subnet mask>>Also, set the DNS accordingly otherwise it won't resolve the query.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

what IP address you set in that adapter? make sure that it's enabled. Start>>run>>ncpa.cpl>>Right click the LAN adapter and Enable. Are you able to ping the IP address which you set?

Hmm..you are getting reply through mac address rather than IP. Have you created a host A record for this machine? if already not, please create an A record associated ptr and see it works.

It should be IPv6 enabled though you disabled manually. You need to disable it from registry

In the same article, expand "For more information" section>>Manually disable or re-enable IPv6 or its components, perform that and see it's working.

I just did a quick test with ipconfig /all in command prompt.

If you're ON PC-54 and Ping PC-54, you'll get the results you have - whether IPv6 is enabled or not.

Once you set the static IP address on PC-54, if you ping it from any other computer, it should give you the computers IPv4 address.

=======================================

On a side note - you must be on a HUGE LAN, running a Class A subnet?!?  255.0.0.0 as noted in your ipconfig information under Wireless LAN

Also...  If you're going to set the static IP on PC-54 and ping it from another computer, you should set both to the same subnet i.e.  10.x.x.x for your testing.

I suggest you do that same ping like this:

ping -4 PC-54

This will force the responses to be in ipv4 format - which is more readable for you.

I don't see any signs to suggest a conflict but I would not use 192.168.1.1 because it's so typically a router address.  Use something else just to be sure.  Your setup is complex enough that this may matter.
