This is usually a problem when the static ip configured clashes with the dhcp ip provided.
Can you provide an output from a cmd prompt on the laptop for command
This will confirm if your laptop is using dhcp or static address.
It is quite likely that dhcp pool is over lapping the static ip address you have configured.
For this simple solution is to go to the broadband router admin screen and configure the pool to not overlap with static addresses.
e.g In my home setup that I have configure
192.168.155.1 - Router G/w
192.168.155.101 - 192.168.155.110 - DHCP pool (I am not expecting more than 10 devices. 3 PCs, 2 Laptops, Measy X7, Samsung TV DLNA, HTC Salsa)
So the static IP address I need once in a while for my Linux experiments I use in the range 192.168.155.51-60 range.
