Question about Computers & Internet
This is just a try. Find out the Default Gateway on the other computers. If they are using a static IP then you need to get on. At someone else's computer click Start and Run and enter Cmd and click OK.
Now type in ipconfig /all. Look for IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS Servers. Write it all down. Then find an available IP address by using the Ping command.
In the same Window, type in ping and the IP Address of the computer you are at. That's just to show you what it looks like when you find an IP already taken. You'll see "reply from..." with the address you just pinged. Now ping again but change the last octal in the IP (the last number) in the IP address to something under 256. And ping again. Do this until you get a message "request timed out". You've just found an available IP.
