Windows 7: Loss of Internet after running system restore

27 Apr 2011   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Read through the thread linked above, releasing and then renewing the IP through ipconfig doesn't work. On renewing the IP config it takes a couple of mins before reporting;

"An error occurred while renewing interface local area connection: unable to contact your dhcp server. request has timed out".

The you mentioned is the loopback adapter on the computer, I can ping that ok. The Netgear router is and is dishing out IP addresses on the > range. As the fault occured after a failed windows update I've fired up windows update and looked at the update history. The status for the 6 updatest that where downloaded and installed for the 27/04/2011 is as follows:

KB890830: success
KB2506928: sucess
KB982018: FAILED
KB2522422: FAILED
KB2492386: FAILED

I shall repeat...I'm no expert, but the fact that the error mentions DHCP caused me to Google this:

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It gives me the impression that DHCP can be detoured.
