A customer recently purchased a laptop with vista, but wasn’t able to get it working with his wireless linksys router.
I tried both wired and wireless setups, but neither worked (yet an XP Pc would work just fine).
I even tried changing wireless security to “none”
A quick search found suggestions about using a static IP address, but that was no use.
I also found: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928233
So i tried:
DhcpConnDisableBcastFlagToggle 1 – default
But still no go!
Customer then decides to give up, wipe the laptop, and install XP instead (and I don’t blame him).
