Dear Barb Bowman, Please can you post a fix for DHCP local only Vista bug/feature
Dear Barb,

I have downgraded all but one of my laptops from vista to xp, but this
last laptop has a blue ray drive and that will not work with XP. All
my laptops failed to connect to wireless hots spots (jetblue, vodafone
& tmobile) and to my Linksys router. Now I tried the many registry
edits and disabling the TCIP version 6 thing but I still did not get
them to work. I lost hours time and threw out two copies of Vista
which I stupidly bought. Please can we get a fix for this issue. A
program I can run not a buch of msdn articles like:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/932134

I really think you owe that world that don't you?

Many Thanks

PS Besides it is in your interest - one day the press is going to get
hold of this if you don't fix it soon and it's not going to MSFT an
good at all....

Would YOU mind explaining how I manage to hook my customere laptops up to
their routers?
You are totally negative!
I have never seen you post here before with a problem.
Learn how to set a Wireless router up with a SSID, and WPA security without
blaming things on other people, that YOU don't know how to use.
In fact, go to College and learn how to use a computer.

You prove that you have no brains by posting your email here, for all the
spam agents and hackers in the world to see.
You are a joke!

William, MVPs' are volunteers and not MS employees. And while I've
written articles and columns for MS, I'm not an employee. I do
understand the pain. I know you are frustrated.

There are too many threads you've started on this so I'd like to ask
that you start fresh with posting (and keeping in each reply as a
quote)

1. what modem and hardware rev Linksys router and what firmware?
2. what brand/model wireless (look in device manager) and what
version driver (also in device manager)?

If you are saying you have a problem on XP, then the first place to
look is on the driver side.

I'd also suggest that you do a complete factor reset on your Linksys
router and restore it to defaults. There is a button or hole for
this.

Oh I thought you worked for MSFT sorry - Don't worry then.

I can not get Vista to work with the Linksys WRT54G3G-UK using the
latest firmware. I also can not get Vista to work with several
wireless hotspots I have come across. XP does not give me any
problems.

I found this article on the subject:

http://mtaulty.com/CommunityServer/b...6/22/9511.aspx

which is the best one I have seen. Still these hacks could be easily
put into a script that people can run as a .exe rather than go through
all this.

People hate PCs compared to Macs not simply because of the interface
(personally I think the Windows interface used to be much better than
Mac), but because Macs are seen as more reliable. A stupid thing like
this is something MSFT need to patch asap.

I should add that when I called Linksys they just got me to harcode a
static ip address which then worked fine. But setting a static ip
address is not possible for other networks.

have you tried the netsh command to disable auto tuning? if you have
disabled Iv6 and made the changes in
http://support.microsoft.com/default...b/928233/en-us

to do this


- Click the Start button
- In the Search box, type: Command
- Right-click on the Command Prompt icon and select "Run as
administrator"

you can copy the line below to the clipboard and paste it into the
window (Click the left corner of the window, then Edit, Paste)


netsh interface tcp set global autotuning=disabled


To undo:

netsh interface tcp set global autotuning=normal
