I tried setting up 2 different IP addresses on my laptop but what ended up happening was now I got my Local Wifi network + the "Unidentified Network" on my Current Connections.

How do undo this? I can't seem to find the remove button. Well actually I did find the button but it doesn't seem to show me the IP Address that was secondly listed.

I followed this when I tried to add a second IP Address: http://www.ehow.com/how_8469143_multiple-ip-addresses-one-computer.html

Apparently it seems to lag when I start up my computer because it's trying to connect to my wifi.

1 Answer 1

If your Local Wifi router is using DHCP to issue IP addresses, you can just set that Wireless Connection in windows to use DHCP. Go to the following:

  1. Start
  2. Control Panel
  3. View network status and taks
  4. Wireless Network Connection (Your local Wifi)
  5. Properties
  6. Select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
  7. Properties
  8. Click the top Radio buttons in each section: "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically"
