comment Windows 7 Intermittent Connection Issues (Repeatedly “identifying”)
hey thanks for the response, but I'm having an issue with desktop pc. I should have mentioned that in the initial post and having just checked the power settings its already set to maximum performance. Thanks very much for the input, good to rule things out :D

comment Netgear router/powerline adapter assigning wrong IP address via DHCP
Alright cool, ill give it a shot. Its a bit disturbing that their was no response from the dhcp at all :/ what can the cause of that be? heavy network traffic?

comment Netgear router/powerline adapter assigning wrong IP address via DHCP
so why would it not be able to get an IP address? Would the 'preferred' address have to be taken by another device?

comment Netgear router/powerline adapter assigning wrong IP address via DHCP
Yeah, i thought that - mentioned that in the reply further down. But if it was driver not correct issue it wouldnt be a sporadic issue, it would be a consistent issue. Like as of just now, its back on the internet with the DHCP assigning it the correct address based on its mac address whereas before it was getting assigned the automatic one(169 etc). It did however have trouble connecting to the network once i told it to "forget" it. My xbox360 had the same issue, the day before, but as of now is working again, not changing any settings anywhere.. :/ im aware they arent specific, just example

comment Netgear router/powerline adapter assigning wrong IP address via DHCP
the router is seperate from the powerline, eg the powerline takes internet from the router transmits it through the powerline of my house to an emitting station that i plug into the wall and then emits a wireless signal with with its own SSID(and ip address on the network) but the router as its default gateway, so essentially its a fancy range booster :P

comment Netgear router/powerline adapter assigning wrong IP address via DHCP
na it doesnt happen with all my devices just some. What i meant to say was that i have an address reservation list on my router so that each router gets assigned the IP adrress that the reservation tells it to, like my laptop is 192.168.0.21 normally, eg now, but earlier on it could 169.254.x.y and when i did ipconfig beside ipv4 it had "automated", so does that mean it couldnt get an IP address so it just gave a automatic one?
