D-Link manufactures routers and switches for home and office networks. D-Link has a configuration console available through your computer's web browser. The D-Link devices are manufactured and distributed with DHCP settings, which is the protocol that retrieves IP addresses dynamically. You can change these settings to set a static IP address on your D-Link switch. A static IP address does not change, so it is a permanent setting on your network.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open your Web browser and enter the IP address for your D-Link switch in the navigation text box. The default IP address for D-Link switches and routers is

  2. 2

    Click the "Home" tab at the top of the configuration console. This displays the current IP settings for the device.

  3. 3

    Select "Enabled" in the section labelled "Static IP Address." Enter a name for the device in the text box labelled "Name."

  4. 4

    Enter a static IP address in the second text box. Click "Apply" to save your console settings. The switch now has a static IP address.

Tips and warnings

  • The static IP address must be unique. It cannot be an IP address already used by another device or computer on the network.
