You would probably have to get a business account that has static IPs available, but if you are talking about a private address, as in within your own network (local) then you can create one easily. We need more information, what modem do you have and do you have any other devices like routers etc.?The ISP gives out the IP, you can't just take it.
Static usually costs extra, if it's even an available option.
That's all you need for your local area networkThanks. I'm using a router.
This is what I ended up doing: I went to control panel > view network status > view status > properties > IPv4 > entered in the IP I wanted to use > entered in the default gateway > entered in my ISP's DNS servers. And that did it.
Well that's what happened when I tried it. It worked the first time but when I started my computers up in the morning there was a conflict. How do I fix it?no, just make sure that you don't use the same number twice. if your IP address is 192.168.x.y, change y to 250. that should work with no conflictions.
