I am having a problem with Internet. Internet is not working intermittently in my system, at those times, in one of my colleague's system it is working. If I disable and re-enable my network, it works again.

Any idea how to fix this? We are having static IPs assigned to our systems.

This is the netsh setting for my system.

C:\Windows\system32>netsh interface ipv4 show subinterface

I was having this issue as well. I assigned an IP to my machine based off of MAC address so that it was always the same IP. This fixed it and I have not had any issues since

This Microsoft KB article may be relevant:


Although the article suggests that this would cause completely network failure, a colleague of mine saw a similar problem on his Vista machine intermittently and changing the setting apparently cured it.
