Windows 7: cannot renew IP address.

cannot renew IP address.

I have a d-link router "DIR 825 " I come out of my brighthouse modem to the router and go across the room to a netgear switch. I have one computer that won't find a ip address when coming out of the netgear switch. I have to run straight from the D-link router to the pc to get on line. The other PC works fine coming out of the switch. Is there something I can check to get the one pc to recognize the IP address when coming out of the netgear switch

Have you tried that PC on a different port on your switch? It doesn't happen often, but switchports can and do die sometimes. What is the model of your Netgear switch?
