Can you set a staic ip address on Lumia 640 XL

I just purchased a lumia 640 xl phone.  I need to set a static ip address to connect to the wi-fi at my work.  I can't seem to find where to put the address.  All other phones I have owned it was not a problem.  You would think a Windows phone would have this option.  Does it?

 

Thanks

Diane

Thanks for replying.  My work's wi-fi only works with static ip addresses.  I have one available to use but can't find how to put it in the phone.  Can you put a static ip address in the lumia 640xl?  I had a samsung galaxy and I had a static ip in that phone.

 

Thanks

Hi Dianne, All of my Lumia Devices are on Windows 10 Mobil. I know this feature was added in Windows Phone 8.1. I'll tell you how on Windows 10 Mobile and you see if it applies. I assume that you are able to connect to the WiFi access point/router etc. after you've connected, Go Into your Settings/Network/WiFi On Windows 10 Mobile you select the Network Name and hold your finger and a menu will popup with one option being Edit. You can then set the Static IP On Windows Phone 8.1, I think there will be a Static IP option on that page. I guess I need to push a device back to 8.1 and leave it there to help people with things like this.

Hey Tony, I have a quick question! Is it still only business accounts that can get static IPs for their devices, or can non-business accounts finally get static IPs too?
