Windows Vista cannot obtain an IP Address from certain routers or from certain non-Microsoft DHCP servers
Consider the following scenario:
- You connect a Windows Vista-based computer to a network.
- A router or other device that is configured as a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server is configured on the network.
- The router or the other device does not support the DHCP BROADCAST flag.
In this scenario, Windows Vista cannot obtain an IP address.Older postNewer post
