Hi all,
I have Microsoft vista connected to the local network.
I cannot ping outside ex. www.yahoo.com until I ping to the local network gateway or detaching and attaching LAN cable, after that I have ping to outside about 1 hour. Other XP machines in the network are working fine.
The machine is receiving the IP configuration from the DHCP server.
What could be the problem?
