I have a machine which does keeps receiving a 169. . . address on its home network. The home network is a Windows 2008 AD domain. The machine was cleaned and separated for specific use by employees for internet access.
The onboard card sometims works at my office so a different PCI ethernet card was installed which works perfectly at my office. However, when it was returned to the home network the new card stopped receiving an IP address.
Eset Smart Security was previously installed but it was removed as part of the troubleshooting process. I have attached my mobile machine to the network cable used by that machine and I immediately got an IP address and was able to browse the internal network and internet.
I need to get it resolved tomorrow so your assistant would be appreciated.
