Release & Renew IP address

  BTony 20:25 04 Dec 2005

I have broadband via NTL (not toooo bad)and occasionally cannot access the internet. NTL help line says my laptop (HP compaq) is not releasing / renewing the I.P. Address automatically each time I am connecting. They have suggested using IPCONFIG /RELEASE and IPCONFIG /RENEW. Not a big deal - but annoying.
Can anybody suggest a way of getting my computer to do this automatically ???
Thanks for any help.

Is that cable or ADSL bb? You could just create a script file that automatically issues the commands - type them into notepad, save as `net.bat` to your desktop, double click to run.
Do you plug the BB cable in after switching on the laptop or before?

Hi Skyver,
I have cable BB and plug the BB cable in before
switching on.
