I can see how it would change from network to network. This was on my home network.I'm not certain, but I believe that it is dependent on what network you are currently on.
Ex. each hotspot would yield a different ip, but the ip would be consistent per spot.
If that makes any sense
Hah, that's Deep Magick. Next thing you know, they'll be coming back here with more problems after they configure those settings incorrectly.Your IP address will change if you are using DCHP to handle the assignment of an IP address to your iPod Touch.
To get a static IP address:
- Go to Settings > Wi-Fi
- Then tap on the blue (>) symbol after the name of the wi-fi network you want to connect to.
- Tap the button Static.
- Give your iPod Touch it's own IP Address, Subnet Mask, Router and DNS.
Key phrase you used in your solution is if you do it properly.There is a way to set up (most) wireless routers to always assign an IP to a particular machine. It's probably under the DHCP settings in the router configuration. Try that: if you do it properly, you'll run into less potential problems than using a static configuration.
Wow, that really is the worst solution. It's way easier to change router settings, it usually only takes one click on the 'always use this address' button or similar. This is just very basic home network management.Key phrase you used in your solution is if you do it properly.
If someone doesn't know how to set up a static IP address then I wouldn't think they'd be able to browse to their router and change the correct settings.
I'm gonna have to strongly recomend against doing this. If you give your touch an ip address in the dhcp range and then dhcp hands the ip out to another devie you will have issues. Therefore I recomend that you figured out how to login to your router and assign static ips through DHCP via MAC address'sBasically, with your iPod Touch connected to the wi-fi by DHCP, copy down all the numbers you see (IP Address, Subnet Mask, Router and DNS). Then tap the Static button and just enter those numbers in. All done. If you've transposed the numbers correctly, then it should connect.
