Our network uses static IP addresses. I have several laptops that are usually connected wireless but sometimes need to be hardwired. Do I need different IP addresses for the Ethernet adapter and the wireless adapter on the same computer? Or can I use the same IP address in both adapters. Using Windows 7 Pro.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Use Static IP address for the Ethernet Adapter and select DHCP type for the wireless connectivity.

    They won't connect with DHCP. DHCP is disabled on the routers.

    If static ip is enabled for a specific laptop it will work with wired connection provided the proper gateway and the DNS for the network is given even if DHCP is disabled.

    I didn't think this question was that difficult to understand

    You can use the same ip address for both the adapters. Since you wouldn't connect to the different network connection type at the same time.
