Your earlier suggestion:

-> click 'Change' under 'Already configured devices'

-> your nic should already be highlighted; click 'Edit'

-> verify the Automatic address setup (via DHCP) checkbox is selected


I didn't intend to offend anyone but instructions provided by you
clearly state to use DHCP. I merely intended to set the record straight
that DHCP was -not- a requirement. Anyone new would be inclined to
follow these to the letter and could think that it had to set this way.
