I'm based in brazilian nets (i lives in Brazil) however..
in Brasil, regular wired connections have dynamic IP, you should "get" the adresses, gateway, IPs and mask, DNS, automattically, and not define then manually.
Only Companies, Universities, uses STATIC IP in Brazil...
If your net uses STATIC IP net, please post here, since the procedure is different.
