2 How to put Static IP in Windows 11 from CMD

One of the most important network components is the IP address since this is similar to our personal identification and in the world of the network it is the presentation between the devices that allow us to connect to the immense world of networks..

 

 

The IP address gives the administrator the opportunity to have control over each computer (in the event that we use several PCs) since with that IP it is known if the computer is active and its details.

 

IP addresses can be of two types:

 

dynamics
These are managed by DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) and are delivered to the equipment through a concession which has an expiration date, so that today we can have an IP ending in 11 and the next day one ending in 20, this is ideal for teams that do not have specific tasks

Static
As its name indicates, it is a fixed IP address and is usually used for equipment with specific tasks such as a server, this is because other equipment and services depend on it and if its IP changes, communication will be affected.

TechnoWikis will explain two mechanisms to establish a static IP in Windows 11 if necessary for an administrative task.

1 How to put Static IP in Windows 11 from Settings

 

Step 1

This is one of the simplest methods to assign our static IP in Windows 11, for this we first open CMD and validate the current IP with "ipconfig":

Step 6

We activate the IPv4 switch and then assign the respective IP addresses as they are:
  • IP to use on the PC
  • Subnet mask
  • gateway or gateway
  • DNS (alternate)

Step 7

In the case of DNS it is possible to assign a much more secure encryption:

2 How to put Static IP in Windows 11 from CMD


This is another option to assign a static IP address in Windows 11.

 

Step 1

We can use the Terminal or the CMD console, we open CMD as administrator:

Step 2

We list the current IP with the command:
 ipconfig /all 
image

 

Step 3

We take into account the name of the current network adapter of the equipment, now we set the new IP address using the syntax:
 netsh interface ip set address name= "ADAPTER" static IP NETWORK MASK GATEWAY 
image

 

Step 4

We assign the primary DNS with the syntax:
 netsh interface ip set dns name="ADAPTER" static IP_DNS 
Alternatively it will be possible to set the secondary DNS with the syntax:
 netsh interface ip add dns name="ADAPTER" IP_DNS index=2 
image

 

step 5

We validate the changes by executing:
 ipconfig /all

Let us remember that for the DNS we can use public servers such as:

 Cloudflare: Primary: 1.1.1.1 Secondary: 1.0.0.1 Google: Primary: 8.8.8.8 Secondary: 8.8.4.4 OpenDNS: Primary: 208.67.222.123 Secondary: 208.67.220.123 SafeDNS: Primary: 195.46.39.39 Secondary: 195.406.406 
By using a static IP we will be able to perform much more direct network tasks knowing that it will not vary constantly.
