Hi, I have this weird problem. I'm on an .edu and from time to time, my internet just goes down, I can reboot or go to my lan settings and click repair connection and it will be it up. I looked in my event viewer and when the repair is taking place, this following message appears in the system events.

Your computer was not able to renew its address from the network (from the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with network address 00065B1B0C2E. The following error occurred:
The semaphore timeout period has expired. . Your computer will continue to try and obtain an address on its own from the network address (DHCP) server.

Anyone know why this is??

Thanks

It seems like a problem with the university DHCP server. most university's use static anyway, so what you can do is copy down all your IP, subnet, and DNS info and manually enter it into your TCP/ip properties that way it will never try to renew the address. if that fails, call your university's admin.
