Windows 7: Win7 still can't boot with static IP correctly?

Win7 still can't boot with static IP correctly?

I set my Win7 Pro computer to a static IP. Reboot and the computer can't get to the network, forget the internet. Give it a DHCP IP, then immediately give it the static it had and it works fine.

What is the fix for this ridiculous issue?

If there is no fix, does anyone know a script I can have run at startup that sets the NIC to DHCP, then back to the static I want?

Are you certain that you are setting the IP and the Netmask properly? What are you using?

The IP, mask and gateway are all correct since it works before I reboot.

on reboot, does it still have the static IP? and can u ping anything after reboot. and then also can u ping 127.0.0.1 just to check the card it's self on reboot. that does sound strange though.

I'll check exactly what the NIC has when I reboot and I'll ping 127.0.0.1, too. Let you know.

Bit confused as to why you should have to do this but you could always try this pal

Create a .bat file containg the following, and place it in your startup

netsh interface ip set address name="Local Area Connection" dhcp
netsh interface ip set dns name="Local Area Connection" dhcp



Then create another .bat file containg the following, and place this in your startup aswell making sure it runs after the previous .bat file you created (replace the x with your relative info)

netsh interface ip set address name="Local Area Connection" source=static addr=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx mask=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
netsh interface ip set address name="Local Area Connection" gateway=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx gwmetric=0
netsh interface ip set dns name="Local Area Connection" source=static addr=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

I will definitely try the scripts if I can't get an answer to this. Thanks.

I'm out of ideas and can't understand how this networking portion of the OS made it out of alpha. Randomly dropped my internet today saying I had no Network. Couldn't get anything back until I rebooted, set it to DHCP, then set it to static.
