Does not sound right. Can you post screenshots?
Double check you are trying to configure the new team adapter,  instead of the physical NIC's,  once you create a team you will loose settings on the physical.

I find that hard to believe that the NIC team does not take a static IP as every single broadcom team I have ever used was only with a static IP.  Good you found your work around,  but I don't think it is a good solution.

If you want to keep on it,  drivers and firmware on your NIC's and post screenshots as Malmensa suggested.

Found The solution with Router DHCP as teaming adapter was not accepting Static IP Address.
