Restore CD sees network card but won't communicate

So I have a weird issue. I’m testing the restore CD and when it runs, it can see the Network Card, it actually gets an IP address from DHCP, then it immediately disconnects and tries connecting again - failing to get an IP on subsequent attempts. I know the cable / network / physical port work, as the machine is able to be on the network when booted to Windows. I only experience this when booting to the Restore CD. Has anyone else seen that behavior? Any ideas what could be causing this?

I know it’s cliche but have you tried power cycling the router?
They can behave very oddly at times. ie everything else on the network behaving but one lone device can’t connect…
