My question is about the error inside my Ethernet Adapter inside the Ipv4 protocol. I screwed things up inside the registers, I guess. How to fix it that it never gives it a static IP address again? It now always changes to, because I set it up like that in the past.

    Please clarify (edit) your question. The title says the opposite of the text of the question. I can't tell from this if you want to put it back to automatic or if you want to fix the incomplete static configuration. – Tonny Nov 8 '18 at 9:25
  • If you don't want a static IP address why don't you choose the "automatically assign" an address option? – Twisty Impersonator Nov 8 '18 at 10:53
  • Everytime when I change it to automatically assing it changes it back to static – Stefan Nov 8 '18 at 12:22

I don't know what you changed in the registry, but you can try this and it will hopefully be of some help.

First open the run box by hitting Windows key + R and then type regedit to open the registry.

Then navigate to the correct network adapter by going to the registry location MyComputer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces

Each network adapter will have a different hex subkey that looks like this. Registry hex subkeys

From this point on, I don't know what DWORDS and string values you have.

Check to see if you have a DWORD (blue icons) that is called EnableDHCP. If you do, check and make sure that the hex value is 1. If it has a value 0, change it to 1 and restart your PC.

You could also put a screenshot of what your registry values look like for the network interface. It may make it easier to see what is wrong.
