ok, i am having this problem now... the local connection is sending packets but nothing is received the ipconfig /all when I select obtain ip automatically is:
host name: "computer's name"
primary dns suffix: "our domain"
ip routing enabled: no
wins proxy enabled: no
dns suffix search:our domain
conn spec dns suffix:
description: realtek rtl8139/810x family pci fast ethernet nic
physical address: 00-08-02-49-4f-8f
dhcp enabled: yes
autoconfiguration enabled: yes
ip address: 0.0.0.0
subnet mask: 0.0.0.0
dhcp server: 255.255.255.255
dns servers: 192.168.1.00
i manually put in the ip info and it has the correct stuff in ipconfig, but the connection still does not receive any packets.
the cable is working fine because i tried a known to be working one.
this just happened to one computer out of the blue, none of the others have this issue.
