Network Connection Configuration for MS Windows

The below guide has been tested on MS Windows 10. Screenshots are taken from Windows 7 thus may slightly differ from other Windows versions.

Please Note: tipically Windows network settings are automatically configured by the system. In case of problems, you may follow the steps below to carry out a manual configuration.

 

 

Pre-requisites

  • You must have full Administrator rights.

In the LAN or High-Speed Internet section, identify the Local Area Connection referring to your network controller (its name may differ from computer model to model), right-click on it and choose Properties (be sure to click Continue in case the UAC – User Access Control – message pops up).
     
    Please Note: many adapters/controllers are generically named Local Area Connection. Under the same name, for example, you may find as well the Cisco Systems VPN Adapter or the 1394 Network Adapter. The settings of those adapters/controllers should NOT be changed!
