Hello
I have a vista SP2 business. I updated the wired network card. I had a static IP but now everytime I restart the pc in the network adapter settings the default gateway keeps disappearing.
I set up an alternate IP address as a workaround but I need DHCP turned on on the router and the pc just gets a dhcp address rather than the static.
Thanks

Can't you configure the DHCP on the router to reserve an IP address to a specific MAC Address so it always give the same address? This way you can leave the PC configured as automatic...

I had this problem in the past when I was using a server 2003 DHCP server on a couple of 7 machines. On boot got IP but no gateway, adding a route myself got everything working ok again till the next power on or hibernate/unhibernate.

Changed to the fritzbox dhcp and it all works ok, even picked up the same IP as it had reserved on the server 2003.

Changed to another server 2003 machine for DHCP and put the reservation in and it also works all good now.

Hello
Great, I think ultimately, I would like to actually fix the issue so I can have a static IP on the pc, for remote desktop purposes and I think the answer is in the Registry.
For now, it works and I can still remote into the pc.

Hello

I partially fixed the missing default gateway issue and now it doesn’t disappear when I restart the pc but I can no longer connect to the network with a static ip address.When I run ipconfig /all the Address shows as APIPA and DHCP enabled is No.

I remembered to untick the DHCP ip address which I had assigned to the pcs network card in the router and restarted the router.

Thanks
