Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
If your console has an option to "enable DCHP" that will let it find out it's IP Address automatically.
If this does not work then goto a PC connected to the same network and click start then run (for Vista just type the following into the search bar at the bottom of the start menu) then type (without the quotes) "cmd"
At the black window that appears type "ipconfig /all" (again, without the quotes).
This will list a load of stuff with a line looking something like
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.5
You'll get one for each connection you have on your PC. (Wired, Wireless, Bluetooth etc)
To invent an IP Address for your console keep the first 3 numbers the same and pick a reasonably large number below 254 for the last one. For example, in this case I could pick 192.168.1.156. Use this as the IP Address on the console. If it complains about "IP Address Conflict" or "IP Address already in use" then you've picked a number already in use - just pick another. Unless you have 250+ PC's in your house, there will be at least one free number!
Other valid IP Addresses you might see in the black window could be similar to:
There are plenty of other "ranges" of numbers and if your PC has an address not starting 192 or 10 or 172 then you have a more complicated set up and may need further help!
Hope this helps,
