    Hello, I started having this problem yesterday when my wireless connection showed limited connectivity. After I do the ipconfig commands it works for a while and then I have to renew it again. It is very annoying. The same thing happens when I plug in a lan cable directly for an internet connection. In order to get it working I have to again release and renew.

    Check your Router's DHCP Lease duration settings and up it.
    Try moving it from 1 day to 1 week or whatever the settings might allow (all router firmware is a bit different).
    See if that helps at all with your problem.
