network adapter automatically gets assigned APIPA address on windows 7

I am having issues with the network adapter automatically gets assigned APIPA address after some time on windows 7 (64 bit). All the other devices on the network works fine. I tried using USB to Ethernet adapter and it gets the IP in the range 192.168.1.0/24 but after some time(like in 2 days) it gets assigned APIPA address. Switching from USB-ethernet to desktop adapter it gets IP in 192.168.1.0/24 range but only for some time and also Reboot solves the issues momentarily. DHCP server works fine without any issue. Have some one got to experience like this?

No I do not have internet..we have our local NAS mounted on the computer which also lost access. Only rebooting resolves it.

Hi, Sorry for late coming. My ISP network was only restored only today after 4 days of repairing. the fault is over head wire cut.
So, reboot resolved the issue. Now you are ok.
