Indeed so, in this case. In the general case, it might be quicker to
enable DHCP than to find out what network the router resets to. Usually
192.168.0. or 192.168.1., but not always.
In the days before Internet dongles, the only Net connection available

or unticking a box. Windows has moved on, no reboot necessary... I can
