DHCP Server fails to issue IP address.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My interent connection stops working randomly, either after reset or during the session. In the event logs, i can find an error with an event id 1001 saying that dhcp server failed to assign ip address, but it will continue trying, or something along those lines. Connection also tends to come back on after 5 min or sometimes after 2-3 hours. I have reninstalled windows 7 home edition 2 times to eliminate any possible software conflicts. Swapped between all LAN driver versions for my onboard intel gigabit adapter. tried all ipconfig tricks in command prompt and none of those things helped. I am using powerline adapters to get the wired connection since my modem is very far away from the pc.

Have to note that wireless is working and other computers in the same household are also working. I am inclined to think that one of my powerline adapters is maybe dying, the one that is linked to my pc to be exact. I will have to test that tomorrow and i will also swap cables and check the sockets on my Lan adapter and on powerline adapter.

If anyone has any input or has dealt with the same problem please let me know how did you get it sorted and if you ahve a solution.

thanks in advance.

are there any LEDS on the powerline adapters or your NIC card flashing? If it is on both Powerline adapters then it isn't the Powerline adapters that is causing your problem. How many computers do you have on your network and what kind of router do you have?


Powerline adapters are good if you don't want to run a cable, but cables are more reliable because Powerline adapters are easy to fail due to it not running on one circuit, turning something power happy on will lose the signal.

Thedark hit it pretty spot on. You stated that other wireless computers and devices continue just fine as far as dhcp is. So its just the computer ran with the powerline adapters. Which Thedark has stated already, if not on the same power circuit, there can be issues. Even if on the same circuit, if say a power hungry device is on that circuit and powers up, you can have sever degradation in signal loosing connection.

I've noticed with networks with power-line adapters, this usually happens when a desktop is under load. I tried to network a client's home with them because of his budget, as soon as his son started playing WoW, no more connectivity.

Ended up upping the budget to run some Ethernet through the crawlspace.

I have used powerline adapters for awhile now. I think it depends alot on the house and the wiring honestly. I have a older set of Netgear XB101's that I use. When I had them in a newer built house in Arizona (built in 09). Even on separate circuits they worked great for my Xbox and PS3 for gaming and Netflix streaming. The house I am currently in in Miami, is a older house (built 74?), they are working fine for current use, however same circuit. If I try to use them on separate circuits, its a crap shoot for how long the connection stays up.

Can see this making perfect sense. Haven't seen them in use in a shoddy wired home yet myself.
