2 Ways to Easily Change IP Address in Windows 10

Geekers - An IP address or what is often referred to as an IP address is a row of numbers that is used as the identity address of each computer on a network.


There are times when you need to change the IP address on your PC to connect to the server or you want to change the IP address for other purposes. In the following article, I will explain how to change the IP address in Windows 7, 8 and 10.



Changing the IP address manually is usually called a static IP and for an IP address that is obtained automatically from the server and can change, it is called a dynamic IP. Immediately, here's how to easily change the IP address in Windows:


A. How to Change the IP Address on a PC / Laptop (Manual)

9. Enter the IP address you want. In entering the IP address, make sure you first adjust it to your network's default gateway. For example, the default gateway is 192.168.1.1, so you can change the last digit to the number you want (from 2 – 253). In the example below, the IP address I want is 192.168.1.10. For Subnet mask, Default gateway and DNS Server more or less like this. Finally select OK.

B. How to Get an IP Address Automatically (Dynamic)


For example, if you are connected to a Wifi network, your IP settings must be automatic (dynamic). To get an IP address automatically, you need to connect to a PC or device that uses the DHCP service.


So you don't need to bother changing or manually setting the IP address on your PC or laptop. You do this simply by selecting the Obtain an IP address automatically option.

You often encounter this DHCP service in cafes that provide wifi hotspots, or even at your school. So you don't need to manually set the IP address to be able to connect to the internet.


Make sure you also know the basics of changing the IP address. It is highly recommended that you deepen your knowledge of subnetting (in the future I will make a special article about subnetting). Do not let you carelessly change your PC's IP address, which will actually make your PC's connection with the server or other PC break up. Good luck!
