    What is a standalone m/c?

    If it's a regular computer running a windows OS, it's quite straight forward.

    Go into the networking control-panel, open the "properties" dialog for your network card. Select TCP/IP and click on properties. Select "Use the following IP adresse" and enter your the desired IP (starting with either 10.0 or 192.168) and use a subnet mask (of for instance

    Click ok, and restart computer.

    Hope this helps, if not please clarify a bit more what the problem is.

    I take it that you're using Windows XP.

    You have to enter cmd in the Start => Run box to bring up a command line, and then enter the commands ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew to make the IP address renew itself, but there is also a Wndows 2000 utility that works like the Windows 9.x utility winipcfg (in XP) that has the options to do that. It is called wntipcfg.

    Just a thought, since you get the message "cable disconnected". You have checked that the cable is securely connected, and that there isn't any breaks in the cable?
    The latter isn't too easy to find, as the cable can work fine one moment, but then is dead the other.
