Hi egyption rebel,

To manually configure your connection:

In the top right of your screen you should see either 2 arrows (wired connection) or wave bands (wireless connection).

- click on this icon
- click 'edit connection'
- Press on wired or wireless tab
- select the connection name and press the Edit button to the right
- select the IPV4 tab and you will be able to enter your IP address, default gateway, net mask, and DNS addresses manually.

Hope this helps.
