One of the addresses is the APIPA address (Automatic Private IP Address) that the computer gives itself when it can't reach a DHCP server or have a static address.

What does IPCONFIG show when you run that in a command prompt?
You can always disable the APIPA address, but you would then have to specify an alternative. Has someone manually configured an APIPA address in the Alternate Configuration tab?

1. Why have DHCP disabled?  
2. Try running TCP/IP Reset and DNS Flush

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
