Use the DHCP Server

Assuming you are using a router, most provide a DHCP server option that automatically provides a IP address to each PC or device connected to the router. This avoids conflicts and usually makes setup much easier.

To activate your DHCP server in the router, you need to communicate with the router. You may need to look at your specific router manual on how to accomplish this.

For example, with recent Linksys routers, you access the router via your browser at address: 192.168.1.1. Select Advanced setup and login to the router. Under Network Setup, Server Settings (DHCP) make sure the option is set to Enable. Other routers will have similar access and settings.
