My NIC card seems to be like crazy
It is not getting any IP from DHCP server. instead, it auto assigns its own IP address: 169.254.10.44/16 with no Gateway info.
If I set up an IP address mannually, looks like it takes it but will not get any reply to outgoing pings (not even the gateway). If I ping to its own IP, it replies OK (the 169.254...... or the fixed I used, both reply OK).
the tray icon shows a warning sign: "status: limited or no connectivity".
Cables are OK (I tested it) and the NIC detects when I plug in/out.
I also tried a driver update with the same result. I also changed the NIC with a brand new one and same thing.
Any ideas please???
