How do I set a static IP address on an Android tablet PC?

How to set a static IP address on an Android device?

Having a static IP address can be useful if you are connecting to the device, and you always want to reference the same IP address.  Normally, the IP address is dynamic and can change each time you connect to the network.

The procedure to do this is slightly different between Android 3 and 4.
If you have Android 3.x, use this procedure:
  • Open Settings
  • Touch Wireless & networks on the left
  • Touch Wi-Fi settings
  • Find the network you wish to connect to and long press it (touch and hold).
  • Touch Modify Network
  • Touch the IP Settings drop down and change from DHCP to Static
  • Enter the settings for your network - if you are unsure what settings to use, contact your network adminstrator

If you are using Android 4.0, then use this procedure:
  • Open Settings
  • Under the Wireless & networks heading on the left, Touch Wi-Fi
  • Find the network you wish to connect to and long press it (touch and hold).
  • Touch Modify Network
  • Touch the Show Advanced Settings check box in the lower left corner of the dialog box.  If the Show Advanced Settings option is not displayed, you may need to go back a step and Touch Forget Network, and then, when you reset up the network, you will see the Show Advanced Settings option
  • Touch the IP Settings drop down and change from DHCP to Static
  • Enter the settings for your network - if you are unsure what settings to use, contact your network adminstrator

This procedure only modifies the one network, not all networks.  You should still be able to connect to other networks the same as before.
