I recently reinstalled Windows 7, and I noticed that I do not automatically receive an IP address when I start up the computer. When I reset, it makes it get an IP address, and I can surf like normal, but when I bring it back down and up again, it loses it.
Now, I at first thought it was my school's network causing problems, since it does have issues, however, when I took my desktop home for break, I ran into the same issue, so the problem is most likely on my machine.
If I try to use ipconfig/renew, I get this error:
The operation failed as no adapter is in the state permissible for this operation.
In my network settings, it is set to automatically get an IP address
I'm on an Ethernet connection.
