How To Fix The Static IPV4 Problem in Windows 10



In the recent updates of Windows 10 Technical Preview built 10049 and later, there has been a bug arise  which doesn’t allows us to set the static IPp address in the Network Adapter. Well in the Microsoft technet the representative mentioned it that they have disabled the UI feature of the properties box for TCP/ipv4 on a temporary basis but we hope that they will restore it back in the next build or in the RTM version.

In our previous post tcp-ipv4-windows-10Download Windows 10 Pro Technical Preview Build 10056 we did mention that there might be many bugs in this build as this is just the technical preview edition and not the final build. Perhaps after installing this new build 10056 I thought that the Network IPV4 properties grayed out thing would have been fixed already after the 10049 and 10051 build. But to my bad luck it wasn’t fixed yet, so I thought of finding a solution and to my luck I recalled my old basic computing classes where we were taught to input the static IP details using the command prompt. Finally I had no problem in feeding the details in the IPV4 and the DNS in the Network Properties box.

 

 

How to fix the TCP/IP properties button and input the details manually :

Step 1 : Run Command Prompt as Administrator

And then press enter.

This will feed the values in the properties itself.

Step 3 : Type the following to change the Primary DNS server details.

[su_quote]netsh interface ip add dns “Ethernet” 8.8.8.8[/su_quote]

Do not worry if it shows incorrect, it will be fed.
