While changing IP address in windows 7, you will find out that setting two adapters with the same Gateway IP wall cause windows to reject the new configurations. Similarly, if the change is being made by a DHCP server, windows 7 may not pick the new DHCP configuration being issued. Be sure of those before you change the ip setting.
