Static IP information lost
Using Vista home premium. Connecting wirelessly to trendnet tew-432brp router. I am using Acer eNet management to configure the wireless adapter.

I set up static IP and turn off DHCP and it works fine for a while. Then for whatever reason connection drops and now the static IP information is lost and it has reverted to "obtain IP address automatically" (but since DHCP is turned off it won't connect anymore)
One reason the connection drops is when the microwave is turned on. I don't mind the connection dropping so long as the stupid thing can reconnect. Right now I have to go back, reset it to static and re-enter the static ip information

Any ideas on where to start looking?

I have IPv6 unchecked.

I saw another note with the same problem that had a link to the chicagonet site. I did what was recommended in that site but that was rather inconclusive.

Here is what it said:
1. Log on to the Windows Vista client computer as a user who is a member of the Administrators group.
2. Open the Network Connections folder. To do this, click Start, type ncpa.cpl in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.

If the User Account Control dialog box prompts you to elevate your administrator token, click Continue.
3. Right-click the network interface, and then click Properties.
4. Click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), and then click Properties.
5. Click the Alternate Configuration tab, and then click Automatic private IP address.
6. Click the General tab, click Obtain an IP address automatically, and then click OK two times.
7. Open the Network Connections folder again.
8. Right-click the network interface, and then click Properties.
9. Click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), and then click Properties.

Steps 1 thru 7 are asking me to set up as non-static and then step 9 doesn't say what to do after clicking on Properties.

When I tried to apply the patch 929451 as suggested in that I got a message saying this update is not applicable.

Any other suggestions would be gratefully appreciated.

Thanks

Re: Static IP information lost
What the chicagotech.net said is for setup two IP addresses, one is static
IP and another for dynamic IP. In your case, you just setup assign IP
information manually. Or posting the result of ipconfig /all may help.

Bob,
Thanks for the reply. Maybe I misunderstood. Anyhow here is the ipconfig/all information.

First I have gone in and set up the static information. On the router DHCP is turned on with the range limited to 10.10.10.200-10.10.10.203, so the IP I assign to this PC is outside of this range.

C:\Users\medhansu>ipconfig /all

Now I sleep the computer for a minute and wake up. Now it says internet connection gone
ipconfig /all looks like so
C:\Users\medhansu>ipconfig /all

Now I go into Acer eNet management and and click on connect. It does its stuff and I do ipconfig /all again

Notice how the IPv4 now has 202 at the end?

I have left DHCP on- otherwise after waking it won't reconnect at all w/o my going in and entering the static information all over again.

Thanks again for looking at my problem.
