Looking for information on connecting directly via ethernet to a homeworks system. Have a system installed at a location and for a long time had a router there for use to connect just to the system. Recently this router was removed accidently and misplaced. Today we tried to direct connect to the system via an ethernet cable, but was unsuccessful as we didnt know what to statically set the ethernet adapter on the computer ip wise. Unfortunately the location is in the middle of nowhere so getting online to try and look up info was slow so we gave up and planned to find a spare router to bring up there and go via wifi. Problem is its bugging me that I couldnt quickly connect, and now need to know how to for the future. Thanks in advance.
