After I set these, it looks for the problem and says that DHCP is turned off (it shouldn't be), and then applies the fix. I have to do this every time I boot into Windows. My previous install of Windows 7 RC didn't do this, and my primary OS, Ubuntu, works fine too.
This is probably a services issue....
Control Panel -> Administrative tools -> Services.
Set "DHCP Client" to Automatic
Set "DNS Client" to Automatic
In the adaptor settings where you've been keying your IP...
Set it to "Obtain IP Address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server Address automatically"...
Restart your system.
In your router/switch ... check settings and be sure that DNS and DHCP are enabled there too.
