I have a PC that was working with a static IP for months. All of a sudden today it stopped showing on the network and when I enter
ipconfig in cmd it shows a different IP address than what is assigned statically. All other computers on the network are working as expected.
Example: IPv4 is configured as:
192.168.0.130 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.1
What is displayed in cmd with ipconfig:
169.254.142.33 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.1
If I set the IPv4 to Dynamic and do
netsh winsock reset followed with
ipconfig /release and
renew after restart it works fine.
Any ideas on what caused this or how to resolve?
