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.
