Vista dhcp (ipconfig release renew don’t work well) — 2 Comments

  1. hi

    In Vista those commands will not work.
    I think you are facing the problem to obtain the automatic IP. For that you can do one registry editing. If you do that vista will start taking the IP automatically.

    To resolve this issue, disable the DHCP BROADCAST flag in Windows Vista. To do this, follow these steps

    Click Start–>Run type regedit click ok

    If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.

    Locate and then click the following registry subkey from left pane


    In this registry path, click the (GUID) subkey that corresponds to the network adapter that is connected to the network.

    On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD (32-bit) Value.

    In the New Value #1 box, type DhcpConnEnableBcastFlagToggle, and then press ENTER.

    Right-click DhcpConnEnableBcastFlagToggle, and then click Modify.

    In the Value data box, type 1, and then click OK.

    Close Registry Editor.

  2. Thanks jasi 4 u,

    At the time, this information wasn’t available on the net.

    Never the less, Vista should not need to be “patched” to make it work correctly… something as fundamental as this should have been working correctly from the day vista was released.
