Configure your computer to use DHCP

- Make sure you have “Obtain Automatically” selected.
- You can verify your settings by running ipconfig /all at a Command Prompt
Add a second static, IP address
- Click Start and choose Run. Enter Regedit and press Enter.
Note: On Windows 2000 and NT you need to run Regedt32 instead.
- Navigate to
(actual GUID of the NIC may vary, select the one that represents your own NIC)
- Select the IPAddress key and double click it.
- In the Edit Multi String dialog box enter a second (and third and so on) IP address. Make sure you enter each IP on a separate line. Click Ok.
- Select the SubnetMask key and double click it.
- In the Edit Multi String dialog box enter a second (and third and so on) Subnet Mask. Make sure you enter each Subnet Mask on a separate line. Click Ok.
