    Is there anyway to edit the IP address for WiFi?

    That's set by the router automatically because of DHCP unless you want to manually assign IP address to your phone and all devices connected to your network since setting fixed IP for phone might cause IP conflict over the network

    So I can't do anything about it? And actually it's the DNS I want to edit but it won't let me.

    Sure you can. But you will have to set up static routing on your router. I know you can assign a specific address from the router. I'm not sure if you can edit the ip from the phone itself but that's cuz I've never really played with static routing. If it's not your router or you're on a public network then you will not be able to edit the ip address because it will be automatically assigned thru DHCP.

    --edit: DNS on the router can be changed. Dunno if u can change the DNS of cell data

    Most WiFi routers (not sure if all) assign IPs to connected devices automatically even after changing DNS so you should be fine

    No. For some reason all the devices that use my WiFi requires the DNS to be put correctly because for some odd reason it keep giving incorrect DNS. So I edit my laptop, tablet and even my ps3 and it works. My Nokia won't let me edit at all.

    In wifi router there should be a setting to set automatic dhcp, that is responsible to set dynamic ip addresses to all connected devices.

    Thank you guys. I enabled it and it's fine now. Thank you once again. In my opinion though I still wish Microsoft allowed us to edit just for just in case reasons. Once again everyone thank you

    You need to open the web page for your router and edit it there, but you can't just edit a subnet mask... It must match the router or routing will cease.
