Welcome to MEPIS,

What is happening is the IP address is getting assigned during boot up before network manager starts to run. Depending upon what router you are using you maybe able to assign a IP address in it based on your computer's MAC address. I have not found a way around this little "FEATURE". My laptop seems to keep the same address up until my router gets re-booted.

The only stupid question is the one you already know the answer.

Remove network-manager (just place that in the search box in Synaptic to find it). The Mepis Network Assistant should be able to set things manually if that's done. Actually it should anyway. However if you want to use wicd then it (Network Manager) has to be removed.

Yes, even I am dishonest. Not in many ways, but in some. Forty-one, I think it is.
