We have a network with a number of PC's. Until recently all PC's were WinXP and all set for fixed IP. All PC's accessable over the network and Internet connections working
Now we have installed Windows 7 on one of the PC's and only when this PC is set for dynamic IP everything works as before. As soon as the Windows 7 PC is set for a fixed IP this PC becomes inaccessable on the network, however the Internet connection works.
The router is D-Link DIR-615. Fixed IP's all outside routers DHCP range and firewall off.
Sharing is on and if there was anything wrong with these settings the PC's wouldn't be accessable with a dynamic IP ?
Sometimes when I change from dynamic to fixed IP I have connection, but as soon as I reboot I am back to square one.
Have checked this forum for solutions and it seems I am not the only with this problem, but fail to find a solution.
Greatful for suggestions
