My internet connection keeps dropping out at work and as I'm the administrator I need to find out what is happening.
I have found that the following occurs:
Internet drops out
cannot ping past firewall.
IP addresses are not affected, ie ipconfig /all shows normal DHCP connection.
Some shares are unable to be contacted (all PC's and servrs are on the same subnet)
IPconfig /renew usually fixes issue.
Sometimes have to do a /release /renew
If this does not work, a /flushdns fixes issue for a while.
I'm sure this is a network issue and not a local issue as multiple PC's are affected (ie pretty much all of those that access the web)
I have created a batch file that renews the IP address and then opens IE, but this is only a bandaid not a fix.
appreciation expressed prior to assistance.
