I'm delighted with my 2S all the way from Romania. I need to give it an IP address to connect to my work WiFi network. How is this done?

Expect a few more dumb questions. Thanks in advance.

From the home screen:

Menu > Settings > Wireless & Networks

You should see a tickbox to turn wifi on and a submenu to enter your details.

Yes, and I can connect to the WiFi network but it tries to automatically assign an IP address whereas I need to add one manually

Ah, that I can't help you with I'm afraid. I've never tried to set up a particular IP on mine.

Hit Menu button when in Wi Fi settings and you should see 'Scan' and 'Advanced'

Click on advanced and I think you'll see where to go from there as there's an IP Settings section

can you set a reservation within your scope so it gets the same IP from DHCP everytime? or does this not work for you?
