As a normal user do we need to change IP address of computer and why it could be required?

If you are not getting connected to internet then one solution is to change IP address of your computer, as it can be one of the solution for the problem.

Its nice to know how can we troubleshoot internet connectivity, as i was facing problem with my internet and i changed my computer IP address and that’s now working with internet. That’s great.

I do what the instructions say and there are no changes, the numbers all stay the same. Is this to shane router IP or the computer’s IP?
My problem is that randomly a message pops up and says “An IP address conflict has occurred, troubleshoot or change IP address.”

I was told by a friend to press a certain F key to open system files(*bios) and change it there, but do not know how.
