If it's your own network, you should be able to connect to your wireless router by cable connection and figure out the settings, you need for your portable computer, to get a connection.

If it's not your network, you have to ask the person, who owns this network, for the appropriate information.

You first need to establish a connection to workplace network.
You normally don't have to assign an ip address manually for that network, especially, if you have no knowledge of the ip assignment in that network.
This is, because if you set an ip address already used in the network, you and in worse case all other users in that network will lose access to that network.

I guess, that network is secured by encryption. So you have to ask the administrator for the network name (SSID) and the correct encryption key, you need to create a new connection at your computer.

Be aware that attempting to circumvent network security and policies may result in dismissal by management. Most companies are very strict about such matters. Best to speak to the network administrator and see if you're allowed to do what you're wanting to.
