i use standby a lot. is there a way to have my computer repair it's network connection and acquire a new ip address each time i wake it up? instead of using it's old one?
thanks, i didn't notice the static DHCP setion in my router. and thanks for the other ideas, guys.Alternatively most routers give you the ability to program DHCP reservations. This would be based on the MAC address of each device. If you were to give a PC a static IP assigned through Windows, if you format it's gone. If you format and the NIC is the same, still there
Also, please don't bump your own thread.
