Setting a fixed LAN IP address on NEW xbox1

I have just unboxed a new xbox1 console.

My router is set for fixed LAN ip addresses (business).

Im setting up the new xbox1 and I can't find any advanced network settings. Ive press the "menu" button on the controller - nothing.

How do I add a fixed lan ip address to a new console?

Heaven forbid options are made easy for the consumer lol.

Ok, to set a fixed IP LAN address on xbox one:

- Connect network cable (NOT WIFI: WIFI WONT LET YOU SPECIFY CUSTOM IP ADDRESS)

- No matter what you read pressing "Menu button" on controller never works during the first set up.

- Using network cable, It gets a bit blurry here from memory and i wasn't going back to trace steps, but click "Try again", then when that fails a 3rd option becomes available "Advanced"...That magic word. Then you are ok.

These options, and the "Menu button" on hand controller did nothing when I was trying a wifi connection with router.

USE A NETWORK CABLE if DHCP is disabled on your router.

Good luck.

To enter a static IP address press the menu button and select settings then go to Network – Advanced Settings – IP Settings – Manual. Then you need to enter the IP address, Subnet mask and Gateway.

Yea - After you have done the initial setup!

"To enter a static IP address press the menu button" - The Menu Button was totally inactive during the first setup phase in both wireless and wired setup. The on screen menu option "Advanced" became available when using a wired connection only. Then all configurations could be entered.
