Connecting Computer To The Network

We will be connected to a wired network automatically when plug in the network cable. If we are not connected, the network may not have a DHCP service (DHCP is responsible for assigning network settings). In this case, we have to manually enter our network settings.

Manually entering your network settings

  1. Right click the Network Manager icon in the system notification area and click Edit Connections.
  2. Click the Wired tab, select the connection and click Edit.
  3. Click the IPv4 Settings tab and choose Manual from the Method drop down list.
  4. Click Add and enter your IP address and other details. Enter the address of your DNS server too.
  5. Click Apply. The network should now connect if you entered the settings correctly.
