Livebox problem

  scoobydoo12 15:30 27 Apr 2008

Can anyone tell me why my livebox keeps losing the access point? For some reason the desktop is fine but the laptop keeps losing my ip address. Any help gratefully received - this is the 3rd time I've had to go through this today and I'm getting a little fed up as you can imagine. It happens everytime I switch the laptop off.

ip addresses change each time you shut down,
and do not always pic up the new address,
this often happens to my desktop if i hibernate or sleep,it seems to be quite common .
right click the icon in the notification area
and click repair it will then find the new address
why it does it i dont know, its something we 've got to live with
