Hello all!!

I figured that I would post this here, because I am at a loss to explain this behavior. I have an HP M200y PC running Windows Media Center Edition. What happens is that I have my Local Area Connection on, and at least once a day, my machine will suddenly lose connectivity with the internet. When it does this, it will show a Triangle with a Exclamation point in it, and say that there is "Limited or No connectivity" When this happened on my old macine, I would simply release (ipconfig /release and then ipconfig /renew) the IP address, but with this new machine, I cannot get the adaptor to renew, and all I end up doing is rebooting the machine. This resets the connection, but I am not sure if there is something amiss on the machine. I have used the same config on at least 2 other machines and it never drops like this......

Any Ideas? If you could help me solve this one I'd be Very Appreciative as it has me stumped because my XP Pro machine never does this - Oh, I have a 1394 connection as well, which mom had to use when she had this machine, but I don't use that to connect.

If I need to provide any other info, please advise :)
