When using static IP addresses on home and other private networks, they should be chosen from within the standard private IP address ranges listed:

  • 10.0.0.0 through 10.255.255.255
  • 172.16.0.0 through 172.31.255.255
  • 192.168.0.0 through 192.168.255.255

Now enter the IP address.  This step is specific to each network.  Ex: 192.168.1.128
Then enter the gateway, which is the base ip address of your network.  (based on previous example): 192.168.1.1
