Weird computer issue

I run Windows XP and I have a Belkin wireless router connected to the our high speed modem. We have a static IP address we use and if things run slow I can go to Start->Control Panel->Network And Internet Connections->Network Connections and then right click on "Local Area Connections" then go "Properties" then highlight "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" and click "Properties". When I go there my static IP numbers are blank and the "Obtain An IP Adress Automatically" option is on. I can put the numbers in again along with the "Use This IP address" option but it does it again. This also happened with the other router we used to have (I forget the brand now).

Any ideas why these numbers keep getting dropped out? It didn't do this without a router.

So you're running a Static IP on the LAN side. Make sure DHCP is disabled on the router and also make sure you have the correct TCP/IP settings: as in making sure you're not using a DHCP client instead of manually setting it to use a certain IP, subnet mask and gateway

Or if you want you can go DHCP then go into the router and do a Static DHCP setup that gives out certain IP addresses via matching MAC addresses.

theres alot of issues with modem/ router working with each other, it takes a while to figure out the correct settings but in the end just about all of them are compatible

Unless you are paying for a static IP address from your ISP. You will be leased one when you log on usually for 24 hours. If you are trying to assign static addresses to computers on your network, behind the router that is something different and unless you need to identify a specific machine on the network let DHCP take care of it.

You can override the system via the registry to use a static IP setup or issue the router to use a static DHCP method they looked up the system by MAC address.
