    Like I said in my earlier post, this feature appears to be available on certain WP devices. If anyone from Microsoft (since Nokia is no more) is reading this, some of us really need this feature on our windows phones. The Wi-Fi at my office requires that connected devices be assigned a static IP addresses. All Android phones at my office can do this simple thing. Why isn't this feature included in windows phones, Windows desktop has it why not windows phone ?



    Because it's useless and can negatively impact on the wifi connection ability of a device if incorrectly configured. It should be implemented eventually, right now there are much more important features to have

    @hprvez First of all, how many ppl on Android have you heard complain about static IP negatively affecting their system ?

    Secondly do you utilize every single feature on your windows phone ? I guess the answer is No.
    In that same vain, not every individual will ever use that feature. Only those who understand how it works will end up utilizing the ability to edit Wi-Fi network settings. So your worry about affecting network negatively is misplaced .

    Thirdly, what might appear as an "important" feature to you might not to be to me. So i believe the word "useless" is also misplaced.

    Lastly the ability to edit Wi-Fi network settings is a "Basic" feature in the smartphone ecosystem. If Windows phone is growing, such "Basic" features shouldn't be left out

    since my 1520 has it and since it's totally software dependent
    i can't understand why it's not available on 520 or any other phone

    Then maybe it really is dependent on particular device?

    Hey guys,

    I found this OEM developer partner page:

    https://dev.windowsphone.com/en-US/O...able_static_IP

    So it depends, if the firmware (e.g. Cyan update) has the EnableStaticIP.xml set on Value=1

    I'm glad Microsoft has now seen the importance of such a feature and has decided to put it in their code. I'm Also hoping Microsoft includes it in the Cyan firmware update. Cos I really need this feature at my work place

    Remember, the preview is only that, a preview, not every feature is unlocked yet. Case being the hidden USB options that was found a couple weeks ago. So this may still come from Microsoft in the "live" update. ;)

    Good. Looks like cyan is going to be more of a feature based update than UI based. I suppose others like Wi-Fi direct, OTG etc could also be incoming with the cyan.

    The question is:
    WHY THE HELL Microsoft makes this option off by default and counts on the OEM to enable it? Why couldn't they just make it enabled by default?

    I had the same problem on WP 8 and still have it on 8.1
    So frustrating. The settings for editing the IP address is still blocked. Makes no sense

    Most OEMs would not bother to enable that function. You read it here first.

    Do not disclose your IMEI number or any other details on a public forum. I suggest you take down the pic at the earliest.
