What Network Configuration Should I Use?
We recommend that you use DHCP to get your IP information. You do not need to do anything to register your computer in DHCP, it will be assigned an IP out of a pre defined block. If you do not want to use DHCP or you can't, use the information below to configure your laptop.
Warning:It is important that you not use the hostname and IP below anywhere but the associated laptops station so that others can use the IP when at the laptop station.
