Step 6: Switch it to manual (not Automatic) and put in a static 192.168... address.
See if that works?

Thank you. I tried this, but still no luck. I cannot figure out why the "save" button is greyed out. I've tried every configuration I can think of.

You have to disconnect your connection first so that the save button will be activated
