How to Perform a Manual IP Settings for Android Devices

The wireless connection of your Android Phone or Tablet will be automatically connecting to the Wireless Access Point or Router in normal circumstances. In such cases, the IP settings will be assigned by the Router during the setup phase of your wireless connection. The IP addresses will be different each time you are connecting to the wireless network.

In some cases, you may want to change the default IP settings to connect with a static IP setting or you want to see the IP Address details that are currently connected. We can see the IP settings of Android Phone or Tablet very easily and change them Manually if necessary by the following procedure.

Open Settings from your Android Phone or Tablet. Go to wireless settings. Now you can see the connected Access Points there. We can open settings by long press on the corresponding connection.

You can also configure the proxy server settings from here. For IP configuration, we will select “IP Settings” here.

In the IP Settings options, you can see the options for “DHCP” and “Static” options. DHCP options will be the default one which will automatically get the IP settings from the connected Router. Here we have to select “Static” option if we want to set the IP address manually.
