I have one particular computer that for whatever reason I want to have a static IP address. (I want to assign additional IP addresses to this network adapter, and you can't have a hybrid static/DHCP connection in Windows. OK so there's bullshit like this, but that doesn't fly for me) But when I do this, it loses all these DHCP options and software that relies on them doesn't work.
