Windows 7: Wired network adapter - Defaulting ip address

Wired network adapter - Defaulting ip address

Hi All,

I'm connected to the net via an ethernet cable using the lan port on my motherboard.

I've setup a static ip address no problems *192.168.1.15*

However, whenever I go and config the IPv4 - This ip address seems to always default to 192.168.127.1

The computer does still use the ip I set it, but this 127 ones always appears in the ip address list?

Is this normal for win7?

Any ideas??
