This is good news because you can rule out a hardware problem but a driver issue could still be to blame. Have you updated the driver?

I have a small problem which is, to put it simply, annoying. I use my home router with addres reservation on 3 machines, however, the x64 Windows 7 machine never seems to have the right IP address (IPv4). I assigned the IP address based on the physical address of the machine but Windows 7 never seem to get the right IP. I tried disabling IPv6 but it didn't help.

I have thought of setting my IP manually in Windows (I even tried it and it worked) but I do not want to have these settings since it is a labtop and I also use it for work and other networks...

If anybody know the solution to the problem please let me know.

Thank you in advance,

best regards.

I too am experiencing this SAME problem.
I also have Windows 7 x64, with a onboard Realtec GigE NIC, and Netgear WGT624v3 router.

I previously ran WindowsXP, and Reserved-IP addresses worked perfectly. So that means my router is fine.

Now since I installed Windows 7, I get a different IP everytime I power-up or wake-up my laptop!!!

So indeed, Windows 7 is DISOBEYING the DHCP server !!!

Any ideas??
