Windows 7 cannot even do a simple "ipconfig /release" "ipconfig /renew"!


  • Getting very frustrated with this situation and this OS in general.

    Machine is a Dell running Windows 7 Professional 32 bit.

    - Yes, I am using cmd.exe as administrator

    - I have NLA disabled to try and simplify this machine's networking as much as possible

    - "ipconfig /release" works properly

    - "ipconfig /renew" leaves the machine thinking hard about what to do forever with no output

    - I have already ran "netsh int ip reset", rebooted and that does not work

    Seriously, how can this be considered a stable OS when the most *BASIC* network functions do not even work?  Is there no patch for this?
