DHCP error

Recommended Posts

my internet has been dropping alot lately...

so i looked in event viewer and this is what i found.. how do i fix this

Your computer was not able to renew its address from the network (from the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with network address 0011116FB9CF.  The following error occurred:

The semaphore timeout period has expired. . Your computer will continue to try and obtain an address on its own from the network address (DHCP) server.

i called comcast and they had me turn my dns client service off..

Your computer has lost the lease to its IP address 192.168.1.101 on the Network Card with network address 0011116FB9CF.

too lazy to look it up but if that router uses NAT you need to either turn it's dhcp on or give your comp a fixed ip. as long as the router then gets its ip from the modem all should be good.

from your post it looks like the comp is asking the router for an ip... give it that same ip manually.
