Description Hans Persson 2002-11-01 14:31:49 UTC
If I configure an interface to use a static IP, then temporarily
change it to DHCP by selecting the DHCP radio button, and then 
want to go back to a static IP again, I have to enter my IP
address, netmask and default gateway again, even though those
fields are not used for the DHCP setting.

It would be much better if these fields were just grayed out when
DHCP is used and then activated again when static IP is selected
