Hi.. I have been using this Windows 7 for three weeks now.. This is the best OS I have ever tried and looks cool etc.. But this network is acting stupid.
When I installed this Windows 7 the network worked properly, but the problems appeared when my friend installed Windows 7 (we live together) which made our internet flip. Same time one XP-box was working correctly. Most of the times only one of us (Windows 7 users) had working inet connection.
He got tired of it and went back to XP, and now he has working internet which leaves me the only Windows 7 user in this network. The problem is that sometimes my network just disconnects. I have tested with DHCP/whitout (sometimes it works with different settings, sometimes not). Couple days ago the inet told me that I have incorrect DNS -servers (I have correct) and I discovered that "routing & something.." service was disabled, and enabling it made me get internet access.
When I reboot my computer, it connects to "Network 4" (Network 2 is the place I get inet) and I have to reboot routing service to get it to connect Network 2. The icon in the tray has the red X on it but I'm still typing here.
My network includes this computer, 2x Win XP computers which all are connected to a D-Link router which is connected to our cablemodem box.
And another thing.. When I do ipconfig /renew (or some specific thing) it says file not found.. It must have been corrupted somehow, cos it worked early on this computer.
So how can I use this OS with fully operating internet?! Because I would really like to..
