I have a simple network at my business with about 8 computers. Most have migrated to windows 7 by now. I had a strange occurance... One computer lost its connection to the network and internet. I tried changing wires etc. It was plugged into the same switch as another computer that had access so i figured it was something to do with the computer. I ended up setting the ip to static and inputing the dns that i got from another computer on the network. Instant success. I had another computer do the same thing today...fixed it. Then just again, another did the same thing. Any idea what this could be?

Thanks a bunch

What is your ISP name at your business
Are you connected with one router or how many (with 8 computers I expect 2 because 4 ports on each router) or a Cisco Router? Model Name: Model Number

Normally routers can use DHCP to request a ip and automatically find DNS andress

Are you using DCHP or Statics IPs

I would suspect the router is acting silly. Have you tried to turn off the modem and router and then let them reboot modem first, then router, then try am ipconfig /release then renew?
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
