What is your network setup like now? Do you have multiple machines behind a router? Just one? The most common would be:

DHCP enabled. This will remove the option of having to create static ip's because the router or server will assign the computer an IP address, subnet, and a gateway. Your ISP should provide the DNS server address. Or is this a workstation at your work or school maybe that doesn't access the internet?

Ooooh, ok gotcha. Click Start, Run, type "cmd" without the quotes, click ok. Next type "ipconfig /all" without the quotes and this will show you all your ip information, whether you are running dhcp, static ip's, your dns server, etc.... If you have an address of 169.254.x.y then something's not working right. That is the address range reserved for windows to assign you when you cannot receive one from the dhcp server. Try typing ipconfig /release this will release your ip then type ipconfig /renew you should receive a new addy if you're configured correctly. After you type ipconfig /all copy copy and paste it back here for me to check for ya.

Well I would say to answer the first question of DHCP or Static= DHCP. And there should be no need to answer the rest since everything should be automatically configured. What exactly is asking you those questions? Or is that your question after looking at the tcp/ip properties? Just wondering if a program is asking you that or you are going to input it. ;)
