WiFi Suckage

Windows WiFi does not play nice. In particular the DHCP client interaction is abysmal. Every time the connection is dropped and reset it does a fresh DHCP, even if there was plenty of time on the old lease.

I would put the machine on a static IP address but if I do that I won't be able to connect when I visit Panera.

Windows should allow the IP address settings to be set for each WiFi connection separately.
