    DHCP errors and browser errors


    I use Chrome and sometimes I get the error ERR_NETWORK_CHANGED then it stops loading pages and I have to reopen it. I first though my Chrome was corrupt or something until I saw the Event viewer and DHCP errors were popping out at the same time the Chrome error.
    The error is:
    ID 1001 Dhcp-client
    Your computer was not assigned an address from the network (by the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with network address xxxxxx. The following error occurred: 0x79. Your computer will continue to try and obtain an address on its own from the network address (DHCP) server

    I use wired Ethernet, the router seems fine, anyone know what's up here?

    Thank you

    To collect IP configuration information easily, do the following:


    Open a Elevated Command Prompt:

    Press WIN + X to open Start context menu.

    Select Command Prompt (Admin)​.



    Paste the following into the Command Prompt window, exactly as shown, including double quotes:

    cmd /c "ipconfig /all > postme.txt & ping yahoo.com >> postme.txt & reg query "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" | find /i "proxy" >> postme.txt & notepad postme.txt & del postme.txt"

    and press ENTER.

    A file will open in Notepad. Please copy and paste the contents here. Close the Notepad window and the file will be deleted and the Command Prompt window will also close. Post results in a reply here.

    That looks perfect. Can you do it again the next time you have the problem so we can compare the results?
