    !!HELP!! Static IP & LAN Issue

    Hi, I Give the NIC a static IP and it works fine however when i restart the old Local Area Connection disappears and new one is detected with a new IP From the DHCP server. Every restart a new Local Area Connection is created currently is on 10 only when i assign a static IP. Whats strange is if i leave the IP as Automatic its fine on reboot. I am using Windows 7 RC Ultimate Edition 64bit. Any help would be appreciated.

    HI

    Where have you set the static ip in general or alternate. If you set it in alternate it will use a dhcp address if one is available and if not it will use the alternate static address.

    can you try assign a static address through the dhcp server with the correct mac address??? i dont know if this will work as i have never had to actually do it but i heard that if a mac address is assigned a static on dhcp then dhcp will always give it that mac the certain static as opposed to it finding a dynamic - if that makes any sense!

    yep that way does work as i have it configured for other computers . This system is my own so would prefer to be able to change the Static IP as need. This might just be a Bug,

    HI

    Did changing the driver fix the problem. I would search the nic card manufactures site for the latest and ignore windows updates. They dont always show the latest drivers

    I have had problems with nvidia nic cards in the past, but not this exact problem.

    This happens in Vista too, by the way. Happened regularly on a print server test setup.

    Sorted the problem. I tried the latest Asus drivers but no luck. The onboard NIC was actualy a realtek NIC so got the latest drivers from there website and it works. Looks like Asus's drivers are also old as well.
