New machine - no IP address!

20/09/2008 - 22:37 von Marge | Report spam
Hello. I've got a new laptop with Vast Basic Home. I've created a connection
to my wireless router (to which I have two other XP machines connected to).

My Vista machine won't grab an IP address. It show the connection as
excellent, but no address. Ipconfig/release and renew do nothing.

What am I missing.

Thanks all

Hi Marge,
From the old days in which I installed my first vista I vaguely remember
having somewhat the same problems. I think I disabled IPv6 in Vista.
In general it is good to realize what's new in a new platform and disable
that in the first place.

Does the Vista machine show the same gateway adress as the xp machines? You
can see that with IPconfig /all.
Comparing what you have working e.g. the xp IPConfig with what does not is a
usefull idea in general.

Kind regards,
Tony Thijs
