I recently changed my router to a Cisco 857 and had to re-setup my network. Everything looks great except that my main workstation looses its IP every time i rebooted it. It had added more networks when i made the changed in network sharing center with names like network 2, Local area connection #2 etc and i wanted to clean it up so i renamed them and i also merged networks on the below screen:
I am not really sure but i think this messed up everything. If i setup up my static IP's all looks good but whenever i restart my nic changing to auto-negotiate and is in unidentified network. If i set my static IPs it keeps again on unidentified network but when i uninstall and reinstall nic's driver it will successfully gets in "Home Network". I tried changing to Work/Bussiness Network but i get same results. I am really sorry about my bad english and i wish someone can point me out to the correct direction. Thanks a lot in advance.
Sorry about reviving the topic but it seems that after each time i clean install windows i get the same problem. I just did a double clean install of windows 10 and now my pc after a reboot boots to unidentified network (with internet access). Each time I manually switch to a static ip it seams that works fine but after reboot I get unidentified network. It seems weird to me that it takes it ~1 min to lose the yellow warning icon after booting. I think that its something to do with my router. Do i have to clean the mac address table on it maybe? Do you have any suggestions?
