You will want DHCP internally to hand out private IP addresses to your devices. What JustATest was referring to was if your ISP was running DHCP and you won't be able to find that out from your local computers statistics however I doubt that is the issue, especially when it has occurred on different networks

If that does not resolve you problem can you please boot your machine in Safe Mode with Networking and see if the same issue occurs? This will determine if there is a third party application causing this issue. (OPTION THREE ONLY) - Safe Mode - Start Windows 8 in
Replace all references of 'Safe Mode' with 'Safe Mode with Networking'
