Assuming iOS 6:

  • Tap on “Settings” and then tap on “General”

  • Tap “Wi-Fi” and look for the network name you are connected to, tap the blue (>) arrow next to it

  • Tap the “Static” tab and enter network appropriate DHCP/static IP information Close out of Settings and launch Safari or another network app to confirm connectivity


To see the MAC Address of your iPhone,

  • Tap on “Settings” and then tap on “General”

  • Tap “About” and look for the "Wi-Fi Address"

  • What is supposed to be entered in the Router field, is it Default Gateway?

  • What if the WiFi is changed, will iOS remember the static address?
