I have a weird problem with my workstation at home. All of a sudden the network connection status says "Acquiring network address", however, my computer is running on a static IP address and has been doing so for years now.
I have a wireless access point (WAP) that is configured as DHCP server assigning addresses in the range 192.168.2.126 - 192.168.2.150 and my workstation is at 192.168.2.51. The WAP has been part of the network for about a year and a half.
Another funny thing is that although it says "Acquiring network address" I have full connectivity to network and Internet.
My WAP was rebooted yesterday, after the problem started, and nothing changed.
Any insight would be appreciated.
