Occasionally, my computer, a wireless laptop running windows 7, stops getting internet connections. In the Windows 7 Network and Sharing Center, my computer is connected to the home network but there is no internet access. I can ping the router. I can ping other devices on my network and all other devices on the network can access the internet. I cannot access my router from my browser and ipconfig /renew returns an error that the DHCP router could not be accessed.
This does not happen all the time but has occurred several times in the one month or so I have had this computer. Disconnecting and reconnecting the adapter does nothing. Disabling and re-enabling it does nothing too. Re-booting usually gets the internet back for me but I did have to re-boot the router (I re-booted the cable modem then too) one time.
This appears to be a problem local to my computer. I realize this is rather open-ended regarding Comodo but, is there any rule I can set to ensure that Comodo is not blocking DHCP on my router? Or inhibiting internet access? Thanks.
