Manually set network settings
If your network doesn't automatically assign network settings to your computer, you may have to manually enter the settings yourself. This topic assumes that you already know the correct settings to use. If not, you may need to ask your network administrator or look at the settings of your router or network switch.
To manually set your network settings:
- Click the network menu on the menu bar and click Edit Connections.
- Then Go Ethernet tab and choose Device Mac address.
- Go to the IPv4 Settings tab and change the Method to Manual.
Click Add and type the IP address, network mask and default gateway IP address into the corresponding columns of theAddresses list. Press Enter or Tab after typing each address.
These three addresses must be IP addresses; that is, they must be four numbers separated by periods (e.g. 188.8.131.52).
Address : IP Address
Netmask : Subnet Mask
Gateway : Default Gateway
DNS Server : Preferred DNS server
Search Domain : Alternate DNS Server
- Click Save.
