I don't want my wireless router's automatic DHCP.

I'm using Windows XP; how can I connect to the router with a static IP?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

In case your router accepts a static IP (without any further ado). Go to Control PanelNetwork Connections:

enter image description here

Right click on your WiFi card, Properties, edit the TCP/IP settings.

If your router won't work like this, then set it back to automatic (the way it was).
Then go to the router's webadmin page, and use the "static DHCP" option to assign yourself a static IP.
