Windows 7: W7: DHCP works fine, but NO Static IP

W7: DHCP works fine, but NO Static IP

I got a little problem getting the static ip configuration to work on one of the Windows 7 machine, DHCP works but i need to be static. Here is the layout of my network:

1. Modem conected to:

2. 4 port wireless router conected to:

3. 8 port SMC giga switch conected to:
3a. Windows 7 computer - static ip
3b. WinXP computer - static ip
3c. Network printer - static ip
3d. Network camera - static ip
3e. 5 port SMC giga switch

3e. The 5 port SMC giga switch conected to:
3ei: WinXP computer - static ip
3eii. Windows 7 computer - with two lan cards
Lan card 1: its a 10/100 card that works both in DHCP and static form. (its disabled right now)
Lan card 2: ITs a 10/100/1000 card that only seems to work in DHCP form. Once i set it up as static, the computer wont see the network (without connection).

Notes:
1. Both Windows 7 boxes are configured the same way except the ip number of course.
2. The ip range on the network is in the 192.168.1.xxx
3. Gateway and Primary DNS: 192.168.1.1
4. Subnet: 255.255.255.0
5. I have disabled IPv6 (read in forums that might help) still doesnt work.

I have ran out of ideas.. :s

I assume you tried various static ip addresses within that subnet and are keeping track of which ones you are using. Have you tried connecting the pc directly to your router?

Also, consider disabling dhcp on your router.

Does your adapter ip settings look similar to this?

Out of curiosity, what is the make of the LAN card and what drivers are you using? Windows or OEM?

Hi merkat106, thanks for your reply

The adapter settings look like the one you posted, i do keep track of the ips used and there are no conflicts in that regard.

I got all the other machines configured and working properly. I havent hooked this one up directly to the router, i would be inclined to do it if there was a recurring problem with other systems but its just this one. Im sure i end up doing it if dotn fix it the way it is now.

The nic card used on this system is:
Brand: Intellinet
model: gigabit pci express
Drivers: windows installed them automatically but i will try the oem ones, thanks for the hint

kameleon,
I can recall having to add the static IP to the routers Client Reserved IP List and the problem you cite was no longer an issue, I think the problem you are experiencing is with the NIC, it might be a good idea to see if there is a firmware update for the NIC.
