So I have a similiar setup at home. And I know that it works. So
either else is wrong on your end (user error, or a specific bug).

I have my router set to give IPs, and recently, I also enabled binding
of IPs to MAC addresses. But I already had my desktop on a static IP.
So one think I we need to clarify, is this with or without the device
set as to be managed by NetworkManager (configurable in
system-config-network). I can't be sure of my own setting as I
recently had a troublesome NM problem myself, so my current settings
aren't t be trusted.

Either way, this is a valid use case (if it really doesn't work).
