    OK, I've only had it out of the box for an hour. Maybe I missed a crucial episode. My WiFi needs a static IP for reasons that are not relevant to this.

    I have tried to configure my Sony Tablet S for static IP. This is what I do:
    • My network is shown under Settings/WiFi Networks
    • I tap my network and open the settings
    • the cursor is on the password field
    • I enter the password and press return
    • I tap on IP Settings and select Static instead of DHCP. As soon as I do this, the static IP fields (gateway, DNS) appear, but the "Save" button at the bottom grays out!!!
    • No matter what I enter in this dialog, I cannot get the Save button to be anything other than disabled.
    • My only option is "Cancel", after which of course, the wireless settings are unchanged, and useless.
    Help.

    Please.

    After much thrashing and gnashing I have got somewhere. It would appear as if the "Save" button on the "Modify Network" dialog is only enabled if you are successfully connected to a wireless network with an IP address!

    Here's what I had to do:

    - Turn on DHCP on my router
    - Disable WiFi on the tablet, then re-enable it.
    - Tablet connects to WiFi, and obtains a dynamic IP address.
    - Go into "Modify Network" dialog.
    - Change IP settings to Static
    - Key in IP address required, Gateway, DNS servers
    - "Save" button is now enabled!!
    - Tap Save
    - Turn DHCP off in router
