There's a IP protocol version toggle in the GUI method below.

Command Prompt/run as administrator
 ipconfig /all
Note fields:
 Subnet mask
 Default Gateway
 DNS Servers
 netsh interface ip set address name="Ethernet0" static

where "Ethernet0" is your network adaptor and all those funny numbers
are your funny numbers.

For DNS:
 netsh interface ip set dns name="Ethernet0" static

GUI method: Open up the Settings app/Network & Internet/IP
settings/Edit/Manual/toggle on IPV4 and toggle off IPV6 (if necessary)
and the rest is self-explanatory.

All untried.

language and full of fratellanza and abnegazione, but which really said, with
the adjectives removed, that I had been given the medals because I was 
an American. - "Another Country"
