hi guys, :tazz:

I have a strange network problem: my LAN card doesn't obtain any addres from DHCP before I reboot the modem. On the other PC in the network this problem doesn't exists, and my laptop doesn't have this issue too.

any idea?

first: I'm not using windows from two weeks, I am using suse linux

2nd: now the connection works, it seems that I need to restart the modem only when I previeosly plugged the pc's network cable in the laptop

PS: sorry for my bad english
