    How to permanently set IP in OS X

    sponsored links


    ***Advertisments***
    Got a MAc and XP machine set-up. My wireless Buffalo router is set up just fine.

    But the connection between XP and MAc is using an ethernet connection. The IP keeps changing everytime I re-boot the Mac.

    I've looked under network in system prefs. I got my ethernet set to DHCP.

    I just don't see a way to set/fix it permanently. Anyone got some advice with that?

    Thanks much in advance.

    I can never get networking between the two to work consistently, but the IP doesn't change.

    My hunch is that you need to set it to configure manually rather than automatically.

    Networking is much too complicated.

    Yup set it manually - mine are always the same.

    Just open Sys Prefs>Network and select Show "Builti-in-Ethernet"
    Then from Configure IP select "Manually"

    Thanks for the replies. Actually, Craig Sharmat also had the same answer about going Manually.

    Cheers.
