Windows 7 network configuration problem

I have two laptops, and each uses the wireless connection for every day purposes. I use IP network for this. DHCP is used to assign these addresses.

Whenever I need to move large amounts of data, I connect a cable to the home router, which can use 1Gb/s speed. I use the network for this, and there is no internet access over this network. These addresses are assigned manually.

However, both networks share the same LAN, through the switch/router.

This setup up works very well.

Recently, possibly as the result of an update, a strange behaviour is seen. When the cable is NOT connected, the wireless connection sometimes suddenly changes its "obtain DNS automatically" to "use the following DNS server address", and fills in a random ip address from the network. As a result, most internet connections no longer can be found.

Anyone any idea what could be causing this?
