  1. Windows Vista cannot obtain an IP address from certain routers or from certain non-Microsoft DHCP


    if you go to


    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928233/en-us

    it tells you how to get round this problem by regedit to

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{GUID}

    and adding a key

    my question is how do I work out what the GUID is of the network card

    my mac of the usb wireless stick is

    ZyXEL G-202 Wireless USB Adapter
    00-13-49-71-32-C8
    Yes

    192.168.1.1
    192.168.1.1

    these are the guid's
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{0f694452-6a70-11db-8eb3-806e6f6e6963}HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentCont rolSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{2c40b 21f-b5c2-11db-a647-000c76bf5189}

    nothing seems to correspond in the driver details
    btw mine connects fine but I want to know for future reference I had to tie
    down someone's wireless card to the router to get is to connect





  2. Re: Windows Vista cannot obtain an IP address from certain routers or from certain non-Microsoft DHCP

    This KB article mentions also another registry value, DhcpConnForceBroadcastFlag,
    that is global. If you set it, does it help?

  3. Re: Windows Vista cannot obtain an IP address from certain routers or from certain non-Microsoft DHCP

    you mean

    MORE INFORMATION
    If the router or the non-Microsoft DHCP server does not support the DHCP
    BROADCAST flag, you can set the following registry entry as follows:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{GUID}

    Value name: DhcpConnForceBroadcastFlag
    Value type: REG_DWORD
    Value data: 0

    it still applies to a specific GUID

  6. Re: Windows Vista cannot obtain an IP address fromcertain routers or from certain non-Microsoft

    The question regarding how to identify correct GUID...

    If when connected you browse through the GUIDs in the registry (the list you suppplied), you can see which has a content that matches your adapter - You can find the IP for instance..

    BTW. Setting DhcpConnForceBroadcastFlag to 0 worked for me.

  7. Windows Vista cannot obtain an IP address from certainrouters or from certain non-Microsoft DHCP servers

    Change all of them it does not matter you are having the problem with all adapters as I am. This is a Vista problem that has no solution yet that I can find. Static IP is the only way for now.
