I am having problems with both my wired and wireless IP NICs. If I go and set the IP to a static address, when I go back to return to automatic DHCP, the settings are already configured for DHCP, and it won't stick. I would expect the current static IP to be already filled in when I open the dialog. If I assign another static IP, it adds the IP as another TCP/IP instance and doesn't change the one I set the first time.
My solution so far is to remove the NIC from Device Manager and rescan for hardware where it will re-add the NIC with default settings.
This is Windows 8 Pro RTM.
WiFi card is Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 AGN.
Ethernet NIC is a Broadcom NetXtreme 57??.
Drivers do not seem to be the issue.
I also posted a screencast of what I see here.
