VISTA wireless problem.
Hi, I have the standard VIsta wireless problem that i've seen posted millions of times and also the solution Windows Vista cannot obtain an IP address from certain routers or from certain non-Microsoft DHCP servers
Well, what I hope is the solution.

Only being absolutely clueless about computers I have no idea what the hell this means.
Particularly this:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{GUID}
In this registry path, click the (GUID) subkey that corresponds to the network adapter that is connected to the network.

So, my question; what the hell is the GUID subkey and how do I find out which whatever this is is the correct one for my network adapter?

Hope someone can look past my blatent ignorance and provide me with an answer

Thanks

OK - A GUID is simply a system generated number. It stands for Guaranteed Unique Identifier. That was the easy half of the question...

Cluelessness beyond this point can get you in trouble, but in order to find which GUID you need to use you need to navigate to the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\Cu rrentVersion\NetworkCards using regedit. From there, you will see the cards installed in the system, and a subkey that shows you what GUID the system uses to refer to them.


Are we having fun yet?
