Good evening friends, its been a long time since ive been here. I have a windows 8 issue. I have 4 systems in an office setting 3 windows vista and one windows 8. All plugged into a wireless cisco router. For some reason the 8 pc refuses to pull a correct IP. All yhr othets are on a 192.168.1 and the 8 regardless of release and renew or rebooting continues to pull a 192.168.15. Heres the kicker, if you shut off the wired connection and use wireless to connect it pulls the proper IP and allows you to connect to the rest of the computers. Any ideas?

And the Ethernet Card itself doesn't have a preset IP Address in Network Properties?

Your IP probably stems from wire connections. Check if you can set a "soft switch" automatically disconnecting WiFi when Wire is working and reconnecting WiFi when Wire is diconnected. Many laptops of different vendors have such a switch (in CMOS or software tools)
