After setting the fixed IP address in adapter properties by using the radio button, 'Use the following IP address', I am forced to fill in the Preferred and Alternative DNS server boxes as that radio butoon shifts at the same time.

Is there any way of not being forced into setting these entries. I have them for my ISP but was just wondering?
