Windows 7: New 7 Install, ipconfig/release/renew brings LAN connection then fails

New 7 Install, ipconfig/release/renew brings LAN connection then fails

Hello, I am new to this forum. I appreciate any help you can offer.

I have been troubleshooting an error with both my WIRED Internet Connection and AUDIO since installing Windows 7, over a previously running XP SP3 OS on the same Comp.

I have 3 desktops running through this working connection (Router) with no problems. If I connect directly to the Modem, no problem on the internet.

Through the Router, my computer retains its connection one way,

cmd. ipconfig /release, ipconfig /renew.

This lasts for a period but if ever awaking my comp, the yellow explanation mark returns and i repeat the command.

Audio is also not working. I know its likely a driver error, NIC Card, maybe, but its an old comp we put together, what specs do you need to resolve this matter?

THanks guys!

What do you mean by this " Through the Router, my computer retains its connection one way,"
Do you want to say that you always have to do this for connecting through your router?
& for audio follow these steps:
1. Run sound troubleshooter from control panel.
2. If that does not help then run FixIt for sound for Win 7.
3. If you believe its a Driver issue then goto Device Manager & check status of your audio device. If there is no driver then install driver & if driver is already there then update it through Device manager.
