Static IP addresses
I have a fair number of devices on my network and sometimes I get connection problems. My thinking is that some of them can be related to IP address conflicts so I hope setting fixed addresses will remove some if not all problems.
But I have never done that before so have no idea how to do it and I have zero experience with Macs.
Can somebody kindly help me to set up static IP addresses.
I have the following:
Virgin wireless router, with the following connected to it via Ethernet
- Netgear router (with its wireless set to off)
- MacMini (wireless off)
- Powerlilne Ethernet adapter
- BluRay player
And via wireless:
- WinXP netbook
- Ipod touch
- Ipad (future)
the following are connected to the Netgear router via Ethernet:
- Humax freview receiver
Two other things are connected on the other side of the powerline network via Ethernet:
- A Win XP desktop (wireless off)
- Squeezebox touch
So this makes 12 devices on the network.
How do I set static ip addresses for all of them?
