3. Select "Ethernet" from the left panel
From the left panel, select the option "Ethernet".
Then on the left side click on "Change adapter options".
4. Select the adapter to configure
Select the Ethernet adapter to configure, then do a right-button click on it and select “Properties”.
5. Find and select "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/iPv4)" and click on "Properties"
In "Ethernet Properties", find the Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/iPv4), click on it, and press "Properties".
6. Select and fill out "Use the following IP addresses"
Once you are there, select "Use the following IP addresses", if not selected, and enter the values as following:
IP address: 10.1.0.111
