what kind of router do you have? why doesn't your router assign the tablet an IP address is the question.. is it not DHCP enabled? the only time I've needed to assign a static address is when connecting to an ad hoc network on my phone.. it not "forgetting" the address you assigned it doesn't make much sense but instead of replacing the tablet you should think about replacing your router..

Sorry, I was out of town for the day. Yes I eventually jsut returned the unit and got a new one. working great so far.

I am having this exact same issue and it seems that my Iconia at 40 days old is past the Best Buy return window.
