I have been experiencing a rather unusual problem this evening, for some reason my laptop has decided that it no longer want to use the IP address I have assigned to it and will auto configure itself.
This is fine but I can not connect to the network anymore as my system is not using the correct IP address. I have check the adapter properties for IPv4 and they are set to Manual and everything is is fine, however if I run IPCONFIG it shoes that adapter has an auto-assigned address.
Any suggestions? This is as well as being annoying proving very problematic and I really need to get it fixed.
