The default network settings are typically to use DHCP and the network card driver is usually already installed by the computer manufacturer. However, if students do not have the network card installed or do not have their computer configured to use DHCP they can follow the instructions below to make the configuration changes to connect a Windows computer to the wired network.

STEP 1: Plug into the network with a cable

STEP 2: Open the Device Manager Window to select your network adapter

STEP 3: Network Connections

> Properties.

STEP 4: Ethernet Properties

In the Networking tab, a list of network components will appear.

STEP 5: Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties


STEP 6: Final Step

Restart computer and test your network connection by launching a web browser.

If you are not successful, call the IT services Help Desk at (414)-288-7799 to arrange for assistance.
