I have a PC with Windows 7. I recently swithched which gateway it points to but the old one still show up when I run IPCONFIG along with the old DNS's. I've released, flushdsn and renewed several times and the info is still there. This is causing connectivity issues. Further more, the old gateway is shut down. Anyone have an idea on how to clear this out?

Sounds like you didn't actually change the gateway or you changed it on the wrong adapter. You should upload a screenshot of the network adapter's settings. –  MDMarra Nov 1 '12 at 15:01
1. DNS doesn't have anything to do with the DG. 2. Is the computer getting it's ip configuration from DHCP? If so, have you looked at the DHCP assigned DG in your Scope/Server options? If using DHCP to assign the ip configuration make sure to check that the Scope/Server options are assigning the correct DG and DNS servers. If the ip configuration is being statically assigned then verify it and reboot the machine. –  joeqwerty Nov 1 '12 at 15:03
I did change the gateway. It shows as the primary GW but the old one is listed as well. –  UpTooL8 Nov 1 '12 at 15:04
Double check the DHCP Scope/Server options. Double check the NIC configuration. Run ipconfig/release and reboot the computer. Post the output of ipconfig/all after the reboot. –  joeqwerty Nov 1 '12 at 15:15
OK, that was the issue. My server still had the old router listed in the scope options. TYVM for the redirect. –  UpTooL8 Nov 1 '12 at 15:16
