    I tried to do this myself, and the result was a computer without internet. My biggest impasse was that the numbers brought up from running ipconfig in command were different from the numbers in my router's setup utility. It's frighteningly possible that I just can't read and I just did something wrong, but if anyone could hook me up with a good article on it or some general instruction, it would be appreciated. I tried to follow the directions from PortForward.com, but I was unable to succeed. (port forwarding was my entire reason for this endeavor, so advice on that would be appreciated as well)

    Let's start with some basic info.

    Please supply the following info.

    The name of your ISP and country of residence.
    Make/model of the broadband modem. If dial-up, please specify.
    Make/model of the router (if any).
    Connection type, wired, wireless.
    Make/model of network card or wireless adapter.
    Make/model of your computer (motherboard if home-built).
    Version and patch level of Windows, i.e. XP-Home SP2.

    Also, let's see this:

    Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

    Type the following command:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

    I want to check a few things.
    Firstly, has your roommate been able to set up a static ip on his wireless connection?
    And you have tried going into the tcp/ip config and entering ip values there? - does this provide you with no internet?

    If you are behind a router, of course you can setup a static IP Address and is this case it will be in the 192.168.2.x range

    I'd suggest a static IP configuration as follows.

    IP Address: 192.168.2.201
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway: 192.168.2.1
    DNS Server: 192.168.2.1

    When I enter those values, an error arrises that says something to the tune of "Conflicting IP addresses" and then no connection. My roommate's computer is also off the network at this time, don't think it was conflicting with him.

    What we really need to know is what the DHCP pool for the router is. There should be very few addresses used anyway, so I'm not sure how you can get conflicting addresses. Are you sure you typed all the data correctly? After entering it, let's see another IPCONFIG /ALL output.

    It is safer to have all computers on, the
    start / run / cmd
    and
    ping the ip address you want to set first. This way you know there isn't a conflict before resetting the computer to use that IP.

    They you don't get the conflict error message and neither to they.

    Also if this is a wireless router, make sure you have security enabled. It's pretty easy for people in the area to be using it without your permission or knowledge. Or if you don't need it, disable the wireless portion of the router entirely.
