Changing the IP Address Settings on Your PC

This guide will take you through changing the IP address on your computer. This can be needed when configuring IP cameras or certain network devices like the wireless bridges which we sell.

Configuring the Ethernet settings on your computer

Click on the Windows icon and type ethernet, select change adapter settings from the list and then click on “Change adapter options” on the right.

Double click on the “Ethernet” icon which shows up and then click on “Properties”. 

Select the “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCIP/IPv4)” and click on “Properties”. 

Now change to “Use the following IP address” which you will want to fill in with the relevant information for the device you are setting up.

Here are a few examples of settings you may want to input:

Comfast Bridge

  • IP Address 192.168.10.20
  • Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0

EnGenius Bridge

  • IP Address 192.168.1.20

Gamut IP Camera

  • IP Address 192.168.1.20
  • Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0

 

You can now press ok and then ok again to save the settings which will have everything configured for you as needed.
