Yes, after the initial switch to wired it did.  NoOp had said to
do that on one of his replies.  It didn't seem right thing to do but
I did.  Do you think that's what changed my settings bach to
wireless mode?  Right now I've got everything with network 
manager in ist's name purged from my system so that should
keep things the same I think.  BTW, this old system is doing
so many strange things I may do a fresh install of Hardy hoping
to fix things.  I tried to reply to you with TB earlier but couldn't
edit the reply within your HTML post.  Just one of the strange
things going on.

It's static right now as that's the way I left it. It was on DHCP
earlier as a test and that's when something changed it back
to wireless.  I'm presuming it was nm but not sure but nm is gone 
now and forever hopefully.  Merry Christmas and happy holiday's
to you and yours.  Thanks for all the good help, too.
