    Hi! I recently installed Windows 7 and love it! The only major problem I'm experiencing is that my WiFi connection doesn't work on my University Campus. The campus WiFi runs on IPv4, and I found the culprit to be that 7 set my IPv4 DNS to certain values. This needs to be set as "obtain DNS automatically". When I set it this way, everything works perfectly...until I reboot. Then windows 7 magically changes automatically back to a set value. S.O.B.!

    How can I fix this? Any ideas? Why is this even happening?

    I did a clean install on a freshly formatted HDD, but I used the EasyTransfer tool to transfer my files and settings from Vista. Could this be my problem?

    I think this problem is actually due to Comodo Secure DNS service, installed with Comodo Personal Firewall. The problem I'm experiencing is that Comodo seems to be resetting it's Secure DNS service at each restart. Not a windows 7 problem...but would still appreciate any help if someone offers.
