    Hi, the two IP address that you are looking at are
     1. Ethernet (Lan Card)
    2. Wireless (Wifi).

    If you are on  Wireless network; you can disable the ethernet card or viseversa. In normail situation; you will always get ip address from dhcp if you are using WLAN (Auto config).

    Hope this helps. If not; please let us know which network do you want to connect.

    on other thought; you can save the IP config in a file for future use; make the other card to accept IP automatically.
