Setting up Static IP with 10.1.x.x LAN IPs

By Lysdexicone ·
I've searched everything and cannot find out why when I run 'ipconfig /all' I get a 10.1.x.x IP instead of a 192.168.x.x IP like all the tutorials.

If anyone could please enlighten me on how to change this I'd be very grateful.

assume that it is a Class C subnet in the Private (non-routable over the internet) range.
The 10.x.x.x is also a private range, however it may be used for a very large network or may be broken down to a smaller set.
For more reading Google NAT and/or private IP ranges.
