We are in a small office for a large company and have been having problems ever since they did an IP re-addressing about a month ago. If you have to go to another office (or even home networks)with your laptop, login to that network, and then come back to the office, you can never get a good IP address. In the event viewer, event id's 1003 then 1007 (DHCP errors - in essence, it can't reach the DHCP server.)The exact 1003 error is :
Your computer was not able to renew its address from the network (from the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with network address *********. The following error occurred:
The semaphore timeout period has expired. . Your computer will continue to try and obtain an address on its own from the network address (DHCP) server.
Then it auto-configures an IP address. (error 1007) Sometimes if you do an ipconfig release/renew, it will grab an IP, but sometimes you have to do another cold boot, but then it connects fine. The error occurs in both MS XP and Win2k. Is there anything we can do on our end to alleviate this problem, or does Corporate have to adjust something on their end?
