I set a WINDOWS 8 pc to a static IP address, When I rebooted the PC, it asked for a server log on. It could not find the server, It was able to telnet to our IBM server. I reset back to dynamic, and all was just fine. I did the same to another windows 8 PC and the same. They act like there is no network available.
I have XP computer with static IP and no issues. Do I have to change the DNS to point to the server?? Because windows 8 cannot resolve the DNS with a static IP address?
