    What OS/ environment is there. Is it an office, if yes, what other client's machine configuration or how did they share. Generally you can assign IP either as static/ dhcp. There are several classes in IP range. Without knowing more, it is not possible to provide a proper reply. For your assistance, please link here: http://www.vlsm-calc.net/ipclasses.php
