Hi all, I recently installed windows 7x64, but I've been running into an irritating issue that I find myself unable to solve. Windows will just not get an IP. Once in a while I manage to get an IP address and have it recognize my network, but most of the time I get "Unidentified Network" and the windows default ip of 169.XXX.XXX.XXX. The subnet seems to default to 255.255.0.0 for some reason instead of 255.255.255.0. - My wireless card is able to connect, my integrated ethernet card works fine in ubuntu, and I cannot connect even when I bypass my router. That means it has to be windows and/or the drivers, correct? - Is it possible that it has something to do with me unintentionally selecting "Public" network when I first installed the OS, and it being confused ever since? The default icon that shows up when I can't get an IP is a bench, representing a public network, even though I think I have since then changed it to private/home network. The icon changes to that of a home network if I manage to connect. - I've tried several drivers, but I am incapable of getting them to work. - Both with and without IPv6 - Setting manually to 100mbps full duplex - I saw in one forum someone mentioning that the P5NSLI motherboard runs into issues with 4 gigs of ram, something to do with not being able to manage all it's peripherals, although I doubt the validity of that statement.
