If your wireless card was working at one time and the router assigned an IP to it then the router would have a memory of this, this is where Windows is getting it's information from. Resetting the router would clear the memory in that case.
If you want to use DHCP plus a static IP, then the static IP you use needs to be outside the range of IP addresses that the router uses for DHCP. For instance the range on my DHCP is 192.168.0.100-192.168.0.199 so a static IP would need to be either above or below 100 and 199.
You might be better off going into the router's set up page at "192.168.1.1" and switch over from DHCP to static IP's. You should be able to assign IP's from there or Windows.
