26) Network Settings Dialog: (Image 3.1)

The Network Settings Dialog is next. Under usual circumstances, the Typical settings are fine, but I never choose them so I can poke around under the hood. I selected Custom here.

Choose your method and select the Next button.

27) Custom settings: (Image 3.2)

TCP/IP Properties contains the standard options. Adjust them for your particular needs as required. For now, I kept the default settings. Basically, it is using DHCP to configure TCP/IP.

Select the Advanced button to further configure your TCP/IP options.

In the custom settings, many options are abound. I cannot go into all of them here, so I will leave everything as default.

28) Workgroup or Computer Domain? (Image 3.3)

Workgroup or Computer Domain, that is the question. I am not going to set up this system to connect to a domain controller, so I will place it as a member of a workgroup.

Please, change "WORKGROUP" to something else. I hate defaults. :)

Select the Next button after making your choice and entering your configuration.
