Well first, this has been happening longer than the recent security updates...
Second, it dropped just now, and this page wasn't open (in fact, I had AIM open but away, and facebook open, but not surfing... I wasn't even doing anything), so I did all I could remember, which was ipconfig from the command line:
After ipconfig /all:
Connection-specific DNS suffix -- satx.rr.com
A physical address, DHCP enabled, autoconfig enabled, an IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, DHCP server, and DNS servers -- all with addresses.
Also (which was taken after the internet dropped):
But, after an ipconfig /renew:
LAN 1 is the nVidia port which is not connected. But why can LAN 2 not connect to DHCP server?
What would be the IP address for TR?
