    If you are wanting to do a network install and you have a DHCP connection choose that option. If you have a static IP address, choose the manual option.

    If you have a static IP, your internet service provider should have given it to you. If you are on DHCP, it should be configured automatically for you when you begin your install.

    Are you sure your dsl/cable/ppp modem driver is being loaded properly? What modem do you have?

    Another way to find out what your IP address is to click here. Like ozar said, DHCP will automatically configure it for you.
