Hey guys, I'm hoping someone else has experienced this on XP. I googled the problem and came up with someone who had the issue on vista, but..... In the Lan properties, of the NIC's, when you look at the TCP/IP properties on a computer with a MANUALLY assigned IP, the tickbox that says 'obtain an IP address automatically' appears ticked, but the DNS server addresses are still in there. These are definately computers with manually assigned IP's, and on occasion when you initially enter the TCP/IP properties screen, it displays the manually assigned IP for a split second, then reverts to 'Obtain IP address automatically.' The ipconfig shows the correct manually configured address. Has anyone else had this?
