    same problem but no solution

    I see exactly the same error every 7 min under Administrative Events 'Your computer was not assigned an address from the network (by the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with network address 0x00215C7D4A0F. The following error occurred: 0x79. Your computer will continue to try and obtain an address on its own from the network address (DHCP) server.' Pretty much the only error I get. Does not seem to matter that much but would be nice if fixable

    ahh found the solution on Tech Net :)

    apparently this error occurs because the network card isnt ipv6 compatible

    to stop the error message simply turn off the ipv6 useage in Network and Sharing Center -> Change adapter settings -> Right mouse click on the network adapter -> Properties -> Uncheck 'Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)' -> Press OK.

    I didn't have to reeboot for this to take effect :cool:

    thank you tech net :D

    Yep, almost no one is using IPv6 yet so there's no point in running it.

    Most ISP's don't support IPv6 anyways, don't know what Microsoft thinks.....
