DNS release/renew on every bootup?

#1
running the 7 RC x64 at the moment and recently every time i boot up I get local connectivity only and i have to do a ipconfig release and renew before it will work has anyone else had this problem?

Thanks,
Jason

so it boots up with the right IP set up but needs a renew before it works? or its not getting an IP until you renew it?

Have you got the latest ethernet driver for the connection?
 


#3
I believe it gets an ip just does not have a DNS server until i ipconfig release/renew it

and ya just checked I had the right drivers even uninstall/reinstalled them

lets say that I did indeed have the wrong drivers they wouldnt work after a renew right?
 


#4
true, so if it gets an I.P. the driver must be good.

Are you sure there is only one DCHP Server on the network? There isnt another conflicting DCHP server set up on a Router or WAP etc which has the DNS missing so that the inital IP assigned isn't from the true DCHP Server?

Does it work ok if you assign a static IP and DNS server or does it still require a renew?

havent tried that yet

but I would like to note that if i unplug the wired and switch onto wireless it connects w/o any problems first try

this is really strange what would you suggest?
 


#6
well, set it a static address on the lan and see if it holds after a reboot. If it does, forget about it and leave it static lol. You never know it may sort itself out later in time with a windows update for either w7 or the driver...

but youre right - strange!

What happens when you unplug the Cat 5 cable and plug it back in? I was having a similar problem with my Marvell Yukon NIC. Sometimes I would get a not connected error but others just a DNS error with local connectivity only. If I unplugged and reconnected most of the time it would fix itself. However, I noticed I had literally thousands of driver errors in the event viewer (26,000+ in 24 hours). I installed the latest NIC drivers from the Marvell web site and the problems all went away.
