From control panel bring up networking then properties on the wired interface. Change from dhcp to static/fixed IP and enter with subnet mask of You might have to reboot after this.

You should then be able to communicate with the Fon.

You will probably loose your internet connection while doing this, to go back, just revert the settings to what they previously were.

I'm not a windows user so the instructions are off the top of my head and I think are right but if not, check with someone who knows how to setup windows networking.
