Windows SBS 2008 Network settings will not stay

I recently migrated from a 2003 SBS to 2008 SBS on different hardware (hence the migration). If i set a static IP it keeps coming back after you go into the network settings back to DHCP but it takes my static IP cause when i go to dos and run ipconfig it has all the settings in there correctly. however if i go to network connections and put the radio dial in to "use the following ip address" and i go out and go back in it is always set back to "obtain ip automatically" i've been struggling with this for 2 weeks now. Maybe someone can shed some light. The main reason I am so concerned about this is because everyone on the network randomly losses connection to the server and i have to reboot them or the server daily.

Maybe you can try to reserve your server ip in DHCP?

Got on the phone with microsoft and it seemed to be a registry setting that they changed. I believe it was HKLM>System>Current Control Set>Control>Network and the key was Config. that was blown out and it recreated itself and seemed to fix the problem. Thank you for the above answers in trying to assist with the issue.
