DHCP is the best approach for any workstation. Run TCP/IP Reset and also flush DNS.

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator
Then  netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
Also, ipconfig /flushdns followed by net stop dnscache followed by net start dnscache
Then restart the computer
Yes, you can change that address.
Few weeks ago I change that address on my network to my network range (my ISP was down for about 12 hours).
With wireless I connected to my neighbor wireless and shared that internet connection. I changed wired IP to 192.168.0.x (since i did not want to change all IP addresses in my network) the only thing that I had to do  is to change default gateway on DHCP server to 192.168.0.x address instead on my routers address, so my home network can get to internet through neighbor wireless. When my ISP recovered I changed again default gateway of my network and ... that's it (except that I went with my neighbor for a drink).
So, just change that address to anything you want ( and you want - an unused address in your network ;-) ) and point to that address as default gateway on other hosts.

You need to do some registry editing for this:

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\SharedAccess\Parameters

You need to adjust  the ScopeAddress and StandaloneDHCPAddress
Don't change it to something too fancy, try to keep it inside the established internal addresses (192.168.x.1, and also don't conflict with other IP addresses currently in use on your computer, for instance other NIC adapters)

Restart computer for it to take effect.

Thank you all for your suggestion. I think all of them are right, but I did not test on each of them since I changed my experiment. I will test these methods in near future. Thank you all
