i have a dell windows 2003 server in a workgroup enviroment. dhcp and dns are coming from a router. the server has a static ip, gateway, and dns assigned to the nic .
the static ip is for the terminal server which is running on the machine. when the machine is restarted the nic loses all conectivity (cannot ping router, browse internet). i can disable and reenable the nic with the static numbers and everything works fine until the next restart. i have upgraded the broadcomm netextreme drivers to the latest 22.214.171.124. i have disabled the firewall service on the server.
