Why does my address go to 0.0.0.0
Posted on 2006-11-14
There have been a few times that I have been on my computer connected to the Internet with no problem. When I turn my system off and turn it on later it will lose its connection. It doesn't happen every time. But it has happened a few times. I have went to run and typed ipconfig/all and it had 0.0.0.0 for the IP address and default gateway. It didn't have an address for the DNS address. My Internet connection is a DSL modem. And the computer is connected to a switch then to the DSL modem. I have another computer that hasn't had any problem like this. It is hooked up through the switch also. On the one with the problem I just had to manually configure it with a 192.168.1.105 address. And the default gateway 192.168.1.1 for my switch. The first couple of times I went ahead and used the primary and secondary DNS for my service. It then worked. The third time I typed in 192.168.0.1 for my DNS. This was my address for my DSL modem. And that worked also. I just don't know what is causing this problem. When I went into properties for the TCP/IP I did have the automatic on the address and DNS set. I just got this problem a few times. What could be causing it. And what can I do to fix this from happening. And just keep my connections for TCP/IP set as automatic.
