Information on how to manually enter IP address, subnet mask, and gateway information into the Internet settings of a Nintendo Switch console.
Complete These Steps:
On a PC or smart device:
Using a device on your network (PC, laptop, smart device, etc.), locate the following network information:
On the Nintendo Switch console:
From the "Advanced Settings" page of your network connection's settings, select "IP Address Settings."
Select "IP Address" and then hold down the B Button to delete the existing IP address (it defaults to zeros).
Enter the IP address you found on the network device, but add 20 to the last section of digits, and then select "OK."
As an example, if your computer's IP address display as 192.168.2.5, enter 192.168.2.25 on the Nintendo Switch.
Important: Every device on a network must have a different, unique IP address.
Select "Subnet Mask," and then press the B Button to delete the existing subnet mask.
Enter in the subnet mask as it appears in your network settings, and then select "OK."
For most networks, the subnet mask is 255.255.255.000.
Select "Gateway," and then press the B Button to delete the existing gateway.
Enter in the default gateway as it appears in your network settings, and then select "OK.".
